Provides less than a poorly done made-for-TV movie, with a gratiuitous opening horror scene that arrives without warning and is enough to give younger viewers nightmares. A waste of time. BTW I love Sherlock Holmes and Spielberg, but this one is just trash.

Great teen movie about Sherlock Holmes and Watson meeting at boarding school. Their adventures have a archeological Egyptian themed mystery. No hunger games type teen vs teen killing each other to survive. Superb special effects, cunning villains, smashing good time!

Spielberg with a little Indiana Jones, Goonies, ET and pre-Harry Potter. Underscoring of the music has runs of their themes which is delightful. Good for teens, 'tweens and us old folks too. Dark for little ones. Good fun although some scenes popped us from our seats. Outstanding!

This is a good teen action/mystery hybrid from the 80's. Has sort of the swashbuckling adventure and action similar to Indiana Jones at times. The fledgeling relationship between Holmes and Watson as well as the Sherlock Holmes mythos (the hat, the coat, the pipe, etc) are explored as well.

Good story. Excellent acting. Wonderful music score. This movie is more for teens. There is one or two disturbing scenes, so not good for younger audience.

This is an early Spielberg. Based on the supposition that Watson and Holmes may have gone to school together, the boys are already collaborating and solving mysteries. There is a bit of teenage romance, as well as action, suspense, and mystery. Well worth the watch.

This movie was too freaky. The only part I liked was when they flew in the airplane. This is good for people who like horror/mystery movies. I personally didn't like it.
