Young Sherlock Holmes ★★ 1985 (PG-13)

Holmes and Watson meet as schoolboys. They work together on their first case, solving a series of bizarre murders gripping London. Watch through the credits for an interesting plot twist. Promising “what if” sleuth tale crashes and burns, becoming a typical hightech Spielberg film. Second half bears too strong a resemblance to “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.” 109m/C VHS, DVD . Nicholas (Nick) Rowe, Alan Cox, Sophie Ward, Freddie Jones, Michael Hordern; D: Barry Levinson; W: Chris Columbus; M: Bruce Broughton.
