PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Crime
Detective Sherlock Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.
Sphinxes are shown throughout the movie in several of the scenes: the graveyard, Blackwood's father's black magic room, and Reordan's makeshift laboratory.
Head cocked to the left, partial deafness in ear: first point of attack. Two: throat; paralyze vocal chords, stop scream. Three: got to be a heavy drinker, floating rib to the liver. Four: finally, drag in left leg, fist to patella. Summary ...
During the meeting of the secret order, Lord Blackwood states that they'll execute their plan to take over parliament "tomorrow at noon". However, the next scene where Holmes examines the dead body leading to the confrontation at the slaughterhouse clearly takes place the following day and the confrontation the following night. Therefore, the order's plan doesn't actually take place until the day after 'tomorrow'.
Scenes from the film become illustrations over the end credits.
