Critic Reviews for Sherlock Holmes and the Woman in Green
Superior entry in the delightful Basil Rathbone-Nigel Bruce series.
No one does Holmes like Basil, and this ranks among the stronger of the series
It's one of the best in the series, partly because it strays from formula and partly because it summons some genuine mystery.
Interesting Rathbone Holmes film with a slightly different approach
engaging in the way it predates both the serial killer narrative ... and the mind-control paranoia that infused Cold War films
Audience Reviews for Sherlock Holmes and the Woman in Green
I love the Sherlock Holmes films with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce quite a bit, but The Woman in Green is a slight step back to me in terms of story quality. For one, the emphasis turns out to be mainly on Moriarty's use of hypnotism, instead of the more intriguing 'modern day Jack the Ripper' plot thread that turns out to be a red herring of sorts. I'm not saying that Moriarty shouldn't have been involved with the story, but this one feels a little bit forced, and doesn't seem to flow as well as some of the others. It's still enjoyable, but not quite fulfilling enough.
Interesting but placing a lot of the blame on hypnotism was a bit sill. Glad that Moriarty was mainly responsible though.
I found this review by dhetteix rather useful: "this particular outing for Holmes is a bit of a letdown. To be sure, the themes of Hypnotism and serial-killing are out-and-out Doyle, but the inclusion of Moriarty, seemingly included for effect, merely softens the plot by introducing a major character for a somewhat brief caper. The film starts strong, yet ends predictably, with none of Holmes' deductive reasoning being revealed. Whilst strong in all other ways, the movie thus forgets the first rule of a Mystery plot: to remain mysterious."
