Sherlock Holmes

a film by Guy Ritchie

Sherlock Holmes the movie has all the ingredients of a great film. It comes complete with a supervillain, femme fatale, a secret society, numerous punch-ups and, naturally, a rooftop Tower-Bridge-under-construction-top showdown. And a result? The ingredients come together as a great film indeed. I still think that the best Holmes ever was played by Vasily Livanov, but... I really liked Robert Downey Jr. in this movie. Jude Law makes a very decent Dr. Watson, and my faith in Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan) has been restored.

Good night.
