VERDICT – 3/5

 

 
PROS –
1) The legend of Jack the Ripper fused into a new adventure of Sherlock Holmes. Instead of relying on the burden of an existing story, the new story made it an interesting watch.
2) There was a long list of the suspect and it made the movie riveting up to the last minute.
3) Mycroft Holmes’ monologue over Sherlock’s violin recital was amusing.

 

 
CONS –
1) John Neville played a very mild-mannered Sherlock Holmes. Donald Houston as Dr. Watson was caricaturish.

 

 
QUOTE –
Mycroft Holmes: For Heaven’s sake, stop sawing away on that infernal instrument! It was a sad day when Mother gave it to you, a sad day for her, a sad day for you, a sad day for us all… What I cannot understand is why, since you’ve had that violin with you so long, you never learned to play!
