Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
In Paris, Professor Moriarty picks up a newspaper (the Daily Graphic). On the back of the paper is an ad for "Lazenby's Soup Squares". At the end of the movie, Holmes, while speaking to Moriarty, says "On Her Majesty 's Secret Service", the title of the Ian Fleming James Bond novel, and the only Bond film starring George Lazenby.

Dr. John Watson:
The year was 1891. Storm clouds were brewing over Europe. France and Germany were at each other's throats, the result of a series of bombings. Some said it was the Nationalists. Others, the anarchists. But as usual, my friend Sherlock Holmes, had a different theory entirely.

SPOILER: The closing title "THE END" appears as part of Dr. Watson's manuscript; Holmes corrects the manuscript to make it "THE END?" See more »
Now i have read all the books of Sherlock Holmes, and if you are going to this movie thinking that they have made it from the book, then you are wrong and will be disappointed. This movie has as much with the original book of Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty to do as Sherlock Holmes has to do with The Detective Colombo. Yes they are both detectives and they solve crime, but thats about it. Many characters in this movie doesn't exist in the original book, a lot of the main story of the film don't exist in the book and Sherlock Holmes don't act like the Sherlock Holmes in the book would have done. The creator of this movie has not given Sherlock Holmes the credit that he deserves. This movie doses not deserve to be called Sherlock Holmes. If this movie had been called something completely else, i would have given this movie more stars, but since this is called Sherlock Holmes then i cannot give this movie more stars.. because it don't justify to be called Sherlock Holmes.
