Even though it's far from believable, it's still one of the most enjoyable in the series.

Audience Reviews for Sherlock Holmes in Washington

Cinematic cementing of the American-British alliance...there is nothing subtle about the detours passed the Washington monument and the capitol. Unfortunately Sherlock Holmes as a WWII spyhunter with a full on brawl of a climax, is just not the right feel for this series. Interesting historical artifact. Watchable...but definitely lacks atmosphere. Buy war bonds!


And another Master Piece, maybe not my all time fav but it was great. I just Love the way movies back in the day. Suspenseful, thrilling and exciting...and all that without any blood and gore, any foul language or nudity. Very refreshing from today's movie making...You wanna break from it all, pick up an "old" movie and relax with it!!!
