I am much happier with D'Onofrio as a campy criminal mastermind than I am with him as the supercop on Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
Some truly terrible acting from all involved make this a real chore to watch, especially if you're more familiar with the excellent Jeremy Brett or the recent Downey Jnr versions. James D'Arcy is pretty appaling as Holmes (even Young Sherlock Holmes was better) but is not the worst thing here. Instead we have a camp Dr Watson and Anwar copying Heather Graham's performance from 'From Hell' and being even worse! D'Onofrio is usually quite reliable but he looks out of sorts here and can't really cope with the accent. It looks quite good (the sets are convincing) but there is a weird electronic score and there is a strong whiff of 'cheap' about the whole thing. The best thing is Richard E. Grant as Mycroft. His all too brief scene makes you wish that he'd played Holmes instead!
I found some things interesting in this reinterpretation of Holmes, but D'Onofrio was unintentionally funny as Professor Moriarty. Overall it just didn't hold together.
