True to Doyle - Sherlock Holmes: Pursuit to Algiers review by JD

Spoiler Alert
19/02/2012

The recent Holmes films have been thrilling and dramatic but so loosely based on the book as to deserve another title. This has the feel of the book. Swirling fogs and impeccable English with an elegance lacking in the newer versions. It doesn't centre on detective skill to my chagrin, more on the storyline which is complex enough to stay interesting with a pleasant twist.
