The soldiers guarding Buckingham Palace are armed with American Henry lever action Rifles. The correct arms would have been Martini-Henry .557/450 rifles with falling block action, standard issue for the British Army for over 30 years. See more »

I would compare this movie to pond scum, if not for the fact that it would be an insult to pond scum.
The acting is terrible, and - worse - the plot is nonsensical. Silly plot points are particularly troubling for a Sherlock Homes film, as the stories typically rely on intellectual consistency and insights. The fact that this film involves monsters and the White Chapel murders means it's not even suitable for children. As such, it's difficult to imagine how production was ever financed. A rich relative or generous government subsidies, perhaps? Ben Snyder's take on Sherlock Holmes is insipid ... but he certainly isn't helped by the stiff dialog.
