5 Elementary my dear Viewer!!Kenpoken | 12/04/2008 | See all Kenpoken's reviews (17)I remember going to see this film at the Cinema, and hadnt seen it for quite a while.A really charming notion that Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson met at public School, both charcters are so very well Acted by Nicholas Rowe and Alan Cox (son of Brian Cox)The plot involving an Egyptian Cult in London is maybe a little far fetched, but that to me is what Films are all about.Some really scary and groundbreaking special effects, the one with the "Knight and the Stain Glassed Window" was incidentally the first use of Computer Graphics in a Film. Eccentric perfomances from both Nigel Stock as Elizabeths Mad Inventor Uncle, and Freddie Jones as Chester Cragwich. If i had one little gripe is is the actor who plays "Seargent Lestrade" dosnt come over as very convincing to me, thankfully he only has a couple of scenes.The sets are very Impressive particularly the "Pyramid" and the subsequent chase through the Graveyard with Holmes Watson and Elizabeth having quite horrific Hallucinations after being hit by "Darts" are very scary.The bad guy is ably played by Anthony Higgins ( although i seem to remember him from a Hammer film called Vampire Circus and he was called Anthony Corlan??Very touching performances from the young stars who seem to fall into there Roles very naturally.I think it is an excellent Film and well worth the money.I think it would be nice to see Alan Cox and Nicholas Rowe reprising there Roles as the Grown up Holmes and Watson as they had such a natural rapport.Very highly recommended.P.S Watch it right to the very end of the credits for a little suprise, it makes you wonder as to whether they had intended to make more Films???
