**1/2 Like Tarzan and numerous other heroes, Sherlock Holmes was called in by Hollywood in order to fight the Nazis. So the film is half propaganda half spy movie. Not bad but 68 minutes of it is nevertheless rather long. Already forgotten.
Oh look at that, Moriarty's back. A serviceable propaganda entertainment, but often preposterous (which Holmes, really, should never be regardless of time period). Is it smart that Holmes gives Moriarty the idea for his excruciating and unbelievable torture? Or ridiculously stupid? We'll never know.
