“She’s got the looks to kill/” Cue guitar riff.
Holmes has his final movie and it’s a pretty good one, too, when Holmes must find some stolen plates before a group of other people. They really finished things on a high note with this one with good action, pacing and a story. It’s similar to another one of the best in the series Secret Weapon, since they are both looking for several pieces of a puzzle.
During the mystery Holmes must deal with almost being gassed to death and Watson must put out a fire in their apartment. It also has one of my favorite conclusions to any Holmes movie. There is just something incredibly camp with them finishing the movie in the house where they’ve found the plates. You can just tell that would be their final scene together.
