Sherlock Holmes -- Review

A very average movie about Sherlock Holmes and his antics.

Guy Ritchie attempts a cinematic take on the fabled Sherlock Holmes and his friend, Dr.Watson.

While too much of internet ink has been spilled on the movie and its merits/de-merits, what is rather puzzling is the use of shades by Sherlock Holmes. They were not invented in the time of Sherlock Holmes.

The movie gives ample scope for a sequels and more.

Watch the movie carefully to learn the sequence of events that unfold.

The one aspect of the movie that was rather expected, given Guy Ritchie's direction was the in-place hilarious one-liners, that both Sherlock Holmes and Dr.Watson deliver.


Both Jude Law and Robert Downey.Jr. give rather adequate performances as Dr.Watson and Sherlock Holmes, respectively.


All in all, a rather tolerable movie, worth a visit to the theater.

    There is clear chemistry between the leads and watching them bicker is the film's strongest appeal.
