Sherlock Holmes: The Woman in Green 2002 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Thank heaven for Nigel Bruce as “Dr. Watson.” Sometimes I think if it wasn’t for his humor, some of these Holmes movies - some - would be too boring to give them a second look. These UCLA “restoration discs” also help. The transfers in this film, and the whole set, are fantastic.
Most of the Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes movies have at least one interesting villainous character or two, here being the famous Dr. Moriarity (Henry Daniell) and “the woman in green” (Hilary Brooke). Of the two, Brooke does a far better job of acting in this movie.
Overall, however, this particular Holmes’ movie was just too monotonous with the only entertainment provided when Dr. Watson was mumbling and bumbling around, which included being hypnotized. Bruce really was an underrated star feature in these Holmes movies even though I enjoy Rathbone best as the great sleuth.
