Storyline

The game is afoot. This made for cable movie focuses on the young 20-something Sherlock Holmes. As the movie opens, Sherlock is in pursuit of the evil Moriarty and apparently shoots him to death, but his body cannot be found as he falls in a sewer. Ah, but anyone who knows the Holmes mythos knows that Moriarty is not so easily killed. Nonetheless, Holmes gains notoriety with the press and the police for his apparent killing of the evil Moriarty. This accomplishment brings him into the company of Dr. Watson, an early practitioner of autopsies, for the first time. Together, they start an investigation into the murder of several crimelords and become convinced that Moriarty is alive and behind a plot to organize drug dealing. Given that Moriarty is supposedly dead, Holmes finds it hard to convince Inspector Lestrade. Holmes investigation leads him to a beautiful prostitute, who posed as a rich woman to lure Holmes into the plot. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Oh my God...
21 May 2004 | by robynwaterspryteSee all my reviews

I first saw James D'Arcy in Master and Commander and, even though he only had a small part, I knew, call it a gut feeling, that he had talent. So I looked him up here and found Sherlock, so I went online and I ordered it. I waited three days and by the time I got it I was bursting at the seams, and I was NOT disappointed!

James presents an amazing performance, my spelling isn't great, and I was impressed at the way he'd made Sherlock arrogant, yet humble, not very humble but you could see it, and he was handsome and sexy all at once!

Vincent D'Onfrio is an excellent actor and portrayed Proffessor Moriarty excellently! He was mad and brilliant all to one! It was brilliant!

The movie was well cast and Dr.Watson was amazing, you could see his disdain at Holmes at the beginning develop into the camraderie that they share at the end, amazing!!

I would recommend this movie to every Holmes fan, it is an amazing piece of work!!
