Sherlock Holmes in The Spider Woman

Posted by martinteller on July 24, 2005

Just can’t get enough of Holmes lately.  This one is a hodge-podge of original material and elements from several classic Doyle stories.  Short on mystery, it’s more of a cat-and-mouse game, playing out much like a 007 story, or an episode of the campy “Batman” show.  The wartime flavor to the climax is an interesting touch.  This time around Watson isn’t as much of a buffoon as in other installments in the series, though the scene with the entomologist is painful.  Rating: 7
