Movie Reviews

Enjoyable animation adaptations
Rudolf Schmid | Kensington, CA | 05/29/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"In 1999-2002 Scottish Television Enterprises released 26 anime-influenced episodes that mostly adapted the classic stories of Sherlock Holmes by Conan Doyle. Although intended for children, the animations are enjoyable to adult fans of Sherlock Holmes to see where characters, plot threads, and dialog has been lifted from the original stories. The animations are well done, and the episodes have some surprisingly sophisticated vocabulary, as "conundrum" and "sibling rivalry."
Seven of the 26 episodes have been released on two DVDs issued by different companies:
(1) The fall & rise of Sherlock Holmes (released 4/02 by Trimark) contains (TT 1.18):
The fall and rise of Sherlock Holmes [adaptation: The final problem]
The crime machine [adaptation: The valley of fear]
The hounds of the Baskervilles: [adaptation: The Hound of the Baskervilles]
The sign of four
also: a multiple-choice game
(2) Out of this world (released 9/03) by UAV contains (TT 1.28):
The sign of four
The adventures of the dancing men
Silver Blaze
The Gloria Scott
Note that "The sign of four" is duplicated. "Fall," "Crime," and "Hounds" are the first three episodes;
the other episodes are out-of-sequence.
The episodes are enjoyable if watched in small doses, for example, for snippets of dialogue from the canon, plus robotics and modernistic stuff like "DNA scans." The first episode ("Fall") will be of greatest interest in transporting Holmes from the 20th to 22nd century."

"I have always been a HUGE fan of Sherlock Holmes! I have read all of the stories and have collectable antique books in very large quantities. I am also, although I AM "a bit too old" as my parents once put it, a cartoon and anime lover. What better to come along but this? When I first saw it, lounging about in my living room bored out of my mind, I was instantly hooked!I have both the DVD's and I'm impatiently waiting for a third! My only regret is that they ended the show, and my only fear is that they wont come out with more DVD's. It is truly a joy to watch for all ages. Instead of the risque humor and sensuality of most shows on the television today it tries to teach children how to use their minds and observe their surroundings. You shall never be afraid to let your children watch the show. You may even be surprised of what your children may learn from it! ^_^"
A Cut Above Most Children's Shows
S. P. Riley | 11/24/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My son and I both watch the T.V. show which is showing on Fox Kids in the fall of 2003. This show, along with episodes from this movie, is delightful and entertaining. The intellectual component is far above the other childrens shows currently on T.V. We were pleasantly surprised to find this DVD and its companion, The Rise and Fall of Sherlock Holmes. Wish they would renew the series and produce some new episodes. It sure beats 99% of the other garbage that is out there for kids to watch. This one actually teaches them the science of logic and the powers of observation!"

"It was better than i expected. If you like history and science fiction mixed than this is for you. I liked the mixture of computer animation along with the regular animation. Also its not rocket science mysteries, just simple fun"
