I love Sherlock Holmes, and when I heard he would not only take on ol'Jack, but be played by Christopher Plummer, I hastily taped it. I loved it!James Mason does an expert job as Watson, so does Plumer as Holmes. A weebit gorier than most Holmes films, I have found a few interestingfacts:*In both th...
On the trail of Jack the Ripper, Sherlock Holmes (Christopher Plummer)gets ensnared in a labyrinthine plot that sends him and Dr. Watson(James Mason) scurrying around London. The main problem for me is thatthe script's underlying premise is not remotely believable. The plot istoo convoluted as it un...
I adore Jeremy Brett. I love Basil Rathbone. I like a few of thehonorable mentions, especially Rupert Everett. Christopher Plummer, notso much. What they probably told him was a sly grin looks like a smirkto me. And what is with the hair in this movie? The Plummer andSutherland wigs must be the envy...
I watched this movie for the first time about 6 months after watching"From Hell". The number of similarities between the two titles makes mequestion when a prior film should be credited in the making of a laterfilm. To me, "From Hell" was nothing more than a remake of this title.From the general the...
Murder most foul afoot in olde London town as Holmes and Watson getdrawn into the very real atrocities committed by the infamous Jack theRipper. Based upon a British TV drama/documentary investigatingpossible reasons for the killings, Bob Clark's film is a delicious mixof slasher movie and conspirac...
I must say it's a good film although it has aged TREMENDOUSLY. It isvery atmospheric. It also contains excellent performances from JamesMason and Christopher Plummer. The atmosphere of evil is perfectlydone. It has only been equaled perhaps by Bergman's The Serprent's Egg.However, it has some very s...
Let me begin on a positive note by stating that I was very impressed withthe performances in the movie. Christopher Plummer surprisingly buteffectively infuses Sherlock Holmes with emotion and at times a giddyenthusiasm. James Mason's Doctor Watson is no doddering old man. He lacksthe Holmesian s...
I was surprised to find this movie actually above 5 in the averageratings.I found it to be a horrible movie, made as if the established character ofHolmes was an alien that was forbidden to enter the narrative. Holmesneverdisplayed the distinctive hyper-aware genius that is his trademark. AtfirstI t...
I had intended to purchase the Anchor Bay DVD of this one as soon as itwas released in 2003 - after I had been impressed by Critical Mass' SEof director Clark's BLACK Christmas (1974). However, since it wasalluded that the same company would release their own disc of MURDER BYDECREE, I waited a whil...
This is an excellent, thoughtful version of the Jack the Ripper murders. Itis not a gory, slasher film, but a thought provoking idea of what might haveactually happened. Yes, it is put forward as a Sherlock Holmes case, but itwould work with any other detective substituted. There is a long historyth...
This is an enjoyable movie, even if the plot is over the top. Actorsperform well although Holmes is shown as an average detective, notusing much of his deductive powers. There are pretty good scenes,technically and dramatically, not inferior to, say, From Hell ones. Theend is a bit far fetched and i...
I thought this was a very interesting show, with a well developed plot, andan excellent cast of legendary actors. However, some people I know believethis movie showed why "The Ripper" actually went on his killing spree. Theseare probably the same people who think Sherlock Holmes was a real man.Oliv...
