||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.
