This is a remarkable little movie that has never reached classic status forsome reason. Aside from an incredible cast, all of whom suit the dignifiedproceedings admirably, there are two other stars who lift this film abovethe level of an excellent thriller. One is the production design. The oldHolly...
This isn't the first time Holmes has met Jack the Ripper in the movies, butthis particular encounter leaves all others for dead. Handsomelyphotographed and produced, this notable addition to the Holmes cycle notonly presents a credible yet intriguing Sherlock in Christopher Plummer, butjust as impor...
Sherlock Holmes has been played by numerous actors, the great BasilRathbone being the best in my humble opinion, but Christopher Plummerdoes a fine job in this offering. There is just the right amount ofsarcastic wit in his chats with Watson. James Mason is the highlight ofthe movie, his portrayal o...

I happened across this film recently and found it to be a superbforerunner to FROM HELL which was filmed many years later. To be frank,this version is a lot more believable. It impressed me deeply becauseof the excellent depiction of the cramped, narrow, damp and windingback streets of Whitehall, al...
Sherlock Holmes (Christopher Plummer) and Dr. John Watson (James Mason) witha little help from a phsychic (Donald Sutherland) become embroiled in theJack-the-ripper case. This intermingling of real and fictional charecters isfor the most part intriging and for my money, much more enjoyable than them...
Several sources, including a loud and proud quotation on the DVD-coveritself, claim that "Murder by Decree" is the best Sherlock Holmes movieever made. Like most opinions are, this is highly debatable. Mepersonally, for example, I'm a big fan of the 1940's Holmes seriesstarring Basil Rathbone as the...
"Murder By Decree" is the ultimate meeting between the two greatestfiguresof Victorian mystery: Sherlock Holmes and Jack the Ripper. There havebeenother meetings between the two (including a terrible novel in which HolmesWAS the Ripper), but none quite as satisfying to devotees of both Holmesandth...
Sherlock Holmes meets Jack The Ripper! No doubt this potentiallyexciting prospect drew so many top notch actors to the project. Masonicintrigue! A Royal conspiracy! What more could any film fan want? Sadly,the rich promise of this plot is very poorly realised. It looksatmospheric, at least to start ...
"Murder by Decree" could have been one of THE great Sherlock Holmes filmsbut suffers from problematic scenes that need to be edited or cutaltogether. Outstanding art direction and recreation of London in 1888 helpto salvage it. It also features winning interpretations of Holmes and Watsonby Christop...
Of course through the years, many movie makers have chosen to use theirfilms to make social commentary on society's evils and its direction.In many ways Murder By Decree is one of those films. With the fictionalcharacters of Holmes/Watson "arguably the best teaming of actors toplay the roles to date...

It has a fine story about the meeting of the greatestdetectiveSherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and the mysterious Jack the Ripper in some ofth...
I am a big Sherlock Holmes fan and normally I am very much againstNon-canonical Holmes stories. However, when I discovered that therewere two films which placed Holmes in the case of Jack the Ripper Iimmediately bought the DVD for this film and I was more than impressed.The clever plot and the super...
Towards the end of the film, Sherlock Holmes delivers a speech to the peoplein power in England. He says: "You will not feel for them" and refers to thepeople in society who are 'down and out', the poor people.He says this is the true crime of it all, that the rich and powerful do notfeel for the po...

Sherlock Holmes, themaster sleuth himself, is not contacted to investigate the killings buteventually is dragged into the proceedings. Mr. Holmes finds out thatthese killings and t...
This is a stylish Sherlock Holmes film with the best foggy-Londonatmosphere I've ever seen on film - just great photography with somewonderful, murky shots. I saw it on VHS and I wouldn't mind seeing itnow that it is available on DVD. It has to look really good.Unfortunately, the story doesn't match...
The story of Jack the Ripper has fascinated me for most of my life. It waswhat led me to read Sherlock Holmes. In 1966, a film entitled "A Study inTerror" opened. It was the first film pitting Holmes against the Ripper. Isaw this years later and I am still impressed by it. While not accurate atall, ...
A fine Sherlock Holmes film, filled with delightful settings, plenty oftwists and one of the finest screenHolmes and Watson since Rathbone and Bruce. Plummer brings sardonic humorand a keen eye to the Holmes' role. Mason is adelightful Watson...plus you just gotta love Mason! The filmishowever very ...
Not being sure whether this was based on a book or not, thesimilarities between this plot and that of "From Hell"'s are too manyto be neglected to realize the latter's director was much happier inchoosing, to start with, to utterly and completely kill the characterof the clairvoyant or "medium", if ...
The detective film is an essential component in how movies work. I'mtrying to abstract the components that work, what doesn't and why. Andthat is taking me through many detective films, and every Holmes filmis a must. Putting Holmes in perspective: he was just at that period where sciencewas news, a...
