Young Sherlock Homes

Author requests article critique
According to TV host John Burke, what happened in this movie almost never happens... the main characers were unknowns who remained unknowns, while those who worked behind the scenes, became household names. This film is directed by Barry Levenson, written by screenwriter Chris Columbus, and executive produced by Henry Winkler (remember the Fonz?). This story, though, it does take great liberties with Doyle's writings, is highly entertaining.
The plot centers around a teen-aged Sherlock Homes, who must solve a series of unexplained deaths at his school for boys in England. There appears to be no connection between them, but Homes believes otherwise, and so, the game is afoot! The movie tells the story of how the infamous pair of Homes and Watson could've met. For the ladies, there's a love story set in the Victorian Era. For the men, there's sword fighting and great special affects. For kids, there's a mysterious figure cloaked in black, as well as the screen's first completely computer generated character. (If they tell you he looks fake, just say it was only 1985).
Have fun pretending as you watch; if you're looking for accuracy and detail relating to writings about Sherlock Homes, you won't find it here. This movie follows the phrase "Lets just suppose." There is no sex (literal or implied), no gore or blood, and very little language (I counted two words). A terrific family film, though some scenes may be frightening to very young children. Have fun!
