Rating: B -- Not a great Sherlock (too many plot holes), but one that's entertaining, never dull and has a lot of intrigues going for it. Full Review

[SECRET WEAPON] marks the arrival of Roy William Neill, the economical stylist who directed the ten remaining pictures.

Rating: 2.5/5 -- The pacing is slack, the big mystery not mysterious enough, and the showdowns between Holmes and Moriarty a bit too silly for my taste. Full Review
The secret weapon is a new bombsight which could hasten the outcome of World War II, and both the Allies and the Nazis are in a desperate race to secure it for themselves. Super sleuth Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and his trusty assistant Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) are assigned to find the kidnapped scientist who developed the secret weapon, only to be foiled by Holmes' nemesis, the evil Professor Moriarty (Lionel Atwill). Based on the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story THE ADVENTURE OF THE DANCING MEN, this Holmes case transplants the Victorian sleuth into the realm of WWII espionage and is also the first of the films to introduce Dennis Hoey as Scotland Yard detective Inspector Lestrade.
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson once again set out to foil the nefarious Moriarty -- and save humanity in the process. This time they have to prevent a Swiss-made bomb from falling into the hands of the Gestapo. Unfortunately, Moriarty has captured the inventor... and will slowly bleed him to death, unless he reveals the secret behind his handiwork.
