A stuffy revisionist Sherlock Holmes movie designed for kids but its sense of humor and whimsy is too dated for casual viewers. The first half is quite boring despite its attempts to be clever and witty but it does pick up near the end. Even then, Barry Levinson who is a good director has to rip off contemporaries like Spielberg for the climax which was very clearly inspired by Indiana Jones.

Decent reinvention of the classic detective, seeing him solve his first crime as a schoolboy. It ups the action side of things to appeal to fans of The Goonies and it's ilk and features some surreal hallucinatory moments and unfriendly natives that reflect the more sensationalist facets of Conan Doyle's original stories. All in all a fun, atmospheric swashbuckler for kids.
