When a mysterious thief named Mack repeatedly escapes the hands of the law, it’s up to detective Sherlock Holmes to crack the case. But Mack is no ordinary thief; he is a heroic outlaw who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. When Mack is finally caught, he escapes from prison, and Sherlock is tasked with tracking him down. However, the further Sherlock investigates, the more he discovers that Mack is not the criminal he appears to be…

This exciting film is an adaptation of a popular Hong Kong children’s book series in which the canonical characters from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories are transformed into anthropomorphic animals. Directed by two of Hong Kong’s most respected animation filmmakers, The Great Detective Sherlock Holmes is a family-friendly adventure full of surprises, thrilling chases, and important life lessons.
