Sherlock Holmes

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

It's a great and enjoyable adventure with a little bit of everything. It's a great movie directed by Guy Richie. I don't know why, but I like this director's movies; RockNRolla is a movie that just doesn't get out of my mind and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels also.
Now talking about Sherlock the great detective, the kind of person who comes up with conclusions even from your smell, or your clothes' smell. He is ingenious and he truely deserves the say "Good work Sherlock". The fictional detective was created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and he soon became the most famous fictive detective of our times. Surprisingly or not, the movie is not based on one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories. The writer prepared the famous detective for saving England.
The story is good, special effects are great and lot of work has been done inducting the viewer into the specific times. I was really impressed by the final battle that took place on the London Bridge scaffolding. The detective rose up to his name and solved the magical puzzle set up by Lord Blackwood, who meant to destroy the England House of Lords and the House of Commons.
Robert Downey Jr. is a one of the most respected actors in Hollywood, he also played in Zodiac and Iron Man. He is the one that carries this movie along, his interpretation of the obsessed detective is absolutely fabulous. You need lots of nerves to play in imaginary playgrounds and notice every detail of them.
Jude Law is not as remarkable as Robert, but he is worthy of appreciations in some scenes. I remember the look on his face when Sherlock tells him a lot of intimate details about his wife, and I really felt his anger in that scene.
All in all, Guy Ritchie has done, as before, a great job. And he also brought the Sherlock Holmes sequel into post production. As for me, I am dying to see the sequel.
