In spite of some of the horrible reviews this film has had, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It did drag in parts, but Christopher Lee was absolutely splendid as the dark and ageing Holmes and Patrick Macnee was well cast as his sidekick, Dr. Watson.
If you ignore the opening scene depicting a street in London, which in know way resembles London, and the American accent on the small Indian girl, then it quite a lavish production.
The bodies pile up thick and fast - great - and the mystery deepens.
It was nice to see Joss Ackland play King Edward VII. He is usually a villain. And the former president Roosvelt was a breath of fresh air.
I have watched it twice already and will no doubt watch it many more times.
Well worth a viewing.
