Movie Reviews

Not at all what you'd expect

"My younger cousins were enthralled with the Steven Spielberg-produced "Young Sherlock Holmes" movie from the mid-'80s. They kept wanting to see more Sherlock (during his younger years in particular) so naturally I was happy to find this mini-series that had been long out of print. With good reason, it seems. This production is rumored to have inspired the aforementioned Spielberg flick. The young actor who plays Sherlock isn't the same as the one who appeared on the big screen, but he isn't bad at all, acting wise. His appearance is rather odd, however, and doesn't exactly fit the bill--except for his appropriately lean build. Unfortunately, there is no junior Watson, but a prototype in an older friend whom Sherlock calls "John". Holmes's future landlady makes an appearance, though she is not called Mrs. Hudson yet. The plot itself revolves around a sinister plan to replace Queen Victoria with a look-alike; this sounds more interesting than it plays out. If the pace weren't so funeral, I don't see why this wouldn't be a more well-known effort. Curiously, this plot idea is echoed somewhat in Disney's "The Great Mouse Detective", but that version makes it much more entertaining."
This youngster cannot be the child who turned into Holmes!

"I was thoroughly dissappointed in this set. The plots were limp and dissapointing. This will be the first DVD that I will resell. I wish someone had steered me away from this one."
Worst EVER

"There is one quote from the movie that summarizes this entire production. It comes from chapter 9 and is a quote from Guy Henry, who plays S. Holmes (not too badly, if you leave out the sword play), "The dullest of my entire life." Imagine if you will all of those truly aweful high school drama performances you have ever seen. This is worse. A barrel of bad acting or overacting. Truly the worst DVD that I have ever seen. Avoid on penalty of being bored to death."
