Critic Reviews for Sherlock Holmes in Pursuit to Algiers

All Critics (2)

Though the plot-line was stale and this is one of the poorer ones in the series, the Rathbone-Bruce team are always good enough to make things entertaining.

December 29, 2009 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The film is marred by glacial pacing, its own silly premise, and a snowballing series of absurdities.
