Sherlock Rocks!
12 June 2005 | by rlarnold62See all my reviews

I love this TV movie very much, as I am a major fan of the illustrious detective. The acting was superior and I found the show had a perfect mix of suspense and comedy. The only thing I didn't really like was that it had to be Moriarty that caused the whole thing. It couldn't have been Moriarty himself that tricked Holmes, as he was dead long before Holmes could have ingested anything! If they had said it was Moran or someone who tricked Holmes into falling for a trap Moriarty had been planning before his death, that would have made more sense. Overall I loved it! There is nothing wrong with this movie, if you love Holmes and are not a purist, then this is the movie for you!
