Source of story
Characters created by Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle and a previous outing for this lot in 2009.
Prof Moriarty is aiming to start a world war probably, for the benefit of his arms factories and Sherlock Holmes and Watson are on the trail, dodging bullets and bombs and a variety of assassins and… meanwhile Watson gets married.
Endless chases, shootings, bombings and skulduggery in such an unbelievable way that this film is going into “alternative reality”.
Well, It’s not bad with a number of fun set pieces using firearms of many calibres including a large field gun. A watch if you like steam punk action films.
