One fault this movie had was all the London fog. I don't think it ever lifted throughout the whole movie. Another aspect of this film that bothered me was the mystery. It wasn't a usual Sherlock Holmes-esque mystery, and it didn't require Sherlock's skills to solve it. Most of the time it required psychological understanding and guessing and following one's instinct. One aspect that I did like, however, was the soundtrack. This film had beautiful music to accompany its scenes and to create the mood at certain moments.

Overall, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking is a movie I'd recommend skipping. Unless you are very bored, don't bother watching this movie. This movie doesn't exactly deserve such a harsh description, but it's true nonetheless. Rupert Everett's portrayal of Sherlock Holmes was slightly too arrogant, although I think he did a good job of showing that Sherlock is not a completely cold-hearted or apathetic character. It just didn't feel quite right. That is what I think of this movie: it wasn't quite right. I don't think it will be likely that I'll ever watch it again. As for inappropriate content, nothing really happens, although the subject matter is undoubtedly unpleasant. There is one uncomfortable scene towards the end. So, why not spare yourself the trouble and not bother watching this movie? That's how I view it, anyhow. I won't say it was a complete waist of my time, but I will say I would much rather watch an episode of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes with Jeremy Brett or Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch. I regret to say this is not a very thorough review, but when one does not have much to say about a mediocre film, one struggles with writing a review.
