  • But, the plot was kind of confusing to follow at times and the portrayal of Holmes and Dr. Watson was one that I wasn’t very impressed with
  • In fact, I think their portrayals were very close to being considered a spoof
  • So, while I did watch it and enjoy parts of it, it is definitely not a movie I would spend my money on

      When I heard they were making a Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, I was somewhat interested. But, then I saw the previews for it and thought it would be stupid so I avoided watching it at the theater.

      And, when I got my DVD of it through Netflix, I ended


      up holding onto it for a while before actually watching it. For the most part, I had good reason.

      I love Sherlock Holmes books. I didn’t love this movie.

      To be fair, the film did have some great action scenes in it and Rachel McAdams was awesome as Irene Adler. But, the plot was kind ...


      • of confusing to follow at times and the portrayal of Holmes and Dr.

        Watson was one that I wasn’t very impressed with. I’m a Sherlock Holmes traditionalist and the characters in this movie were anything but traditional.

        In fact, I think their portrayals were very close to being considered a spoof. I’m sorry but Dr.

        Watson is not supposed to be a character with a sense of independence like Law’s Watson was. It was an OK movie.

        But, it was also a film that had me wishing it was over halfway through it. So, while I did watch it and enjoy parts of it, it is definitely not a movie I would spend my money on.
