One of the more imaginative Sherlock Holmes films.
A fond homage to the heyday of Hammer Studio, and a canny transmuting of Victorian Britannia to the tail end of the politicized '70s
May be my favorite Sherlock Holmes movie.
Plummer and Mason together make one of cinema's great -- certainly the most touching -- Holmes-Watson teams. Ripperologists will be pleased by how faithful the script is to historical incidents and persons involved.
A cool premise executed well
Murder by Decree is spiffy entertainment for lovers of good mystery stories.
Decently exciting film for 1979. Christopher Plummer delivers a strong and subtle performance, but cannot hold a candle to Robert Downey, Jr.'s Holmes.
An intelligent well-plotted suspense thriller beautifully directed by the late Bob Clark, in which Sherlock Holmes brilliantly played by Christopher Plummer and his associate Dr. Watson, the late great veteran actor James Mason in a deliciously sly performance investigates the gruesome murders of Jack the Ripper in London circa 1888 and discovers a mass conspiracy to protect the killer. Notable supporting performances from David Hemmings, Susan Clark, Anthony Quayle, John Gielgud, Frank Finlay, Donald Sutherland and Genevieve Bujold in standout performance as Annie Crook. The period recreation is flawless. One of the best and most original Sherlock Holmes films ever made. Highly Recommended.
It was a fun watch. It reminded me of From Hell.
Solid Sherlock Holmes tale starring the great Christopher Plummer and James Mason as the tag-team of Holmes & Watson! An interesting tale as it involves the famous Jack The Ripper murders. Check it out if you have that Sherlock bug from the Ritchie/Downey version!
