Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon
Starting in Switzerland, Sherlock Holmes rescues the inventor of a bomb-sight which the allies want to keep from the Nazis. Back in London it seems that the inventor is not all that he seemed.

Donald Crisp and Laurence Naismith give very fine performances as James Brown (pre-Sex Machine days when he was caretaker of the churchyard where Bobby keep his graveside vigil) and Mr Traill (owner of the Edinburgh restaurant where Bobby runs to eat every day at the sound of the one o'clock gun) respectively: the two men at war over ownership of the titular beast. And they were both sassenachs! The finest Disney films always manage to play on the viewers emotions as if they were a stringed instrument and they were always on to a winner here, with a true(ish) story about a Skye Terrier unable to leave his master's side, even after the auld codger's death, but they tell it beautifully. Only the most unfeeling of brutes could watch this without being touched,

It's one of those films that i can put on in any mood. Im Glad Kiefer has hit the big time again, he deserves it

Timmy R (au) wrote: the movie achieves what I believe it was intending to give audiences. it is a part of a large movement of grittier, social commenting, fun to watch 70s cop films and doesn't really try to break any new ground. it really has a feel of a (slightly) R rated version of an episode of a 70s buddy cop show. 90% of the entertainment value is just watching Gould and Blake as partners and their interactions with the seedy criminal world. Hyams actually attempts to throw some style in the mix, with long tracking shots, but that's about it. The "climactic" end of the film is truly unexciting and almost cheap, but overall the movie is fun.
