Sherlock Holmes

Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes paints a different portrait of the detective hero...Holmes played by Robert Downey Jr. is more of a man about adventure and action compared the bookish tweed wearing portrayals of past...The same is true for Dr. Watson played by Jude Law...A much younger and more hands on Dr...Thanks to C.G.I. effects Ritchie recreates Victorian London for his characters to romp around in... The stunning Rachel McAdam's Plays Holmes femme fatal love interest Irene Adler she's as fiery as her red hair...I love the redheads... Mark Strong plays Lord Blackwell... Holmes occult driven adversary... As much as Ritchie must of grown up with Hammer Studios visions of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's hero he gives it the Hollywood gloss over rather then the B studio exploitation...Which is to bad...Sherlock lacks Ritchie's witty dialogue witch is present in his modern day British gangster films... Downey Jr. is in impressive shape for a guy his age... Good thing because his shirt is off often...I'll be looking for the sequel witch should pit Holmes against Dr. Moriarty...That's Elementary
