  • This isn’t faithful to any of the stories but it’s interesting to watch
  • I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good movie, but if you’re a Sherlock Holmes purist, you might want to wait for a rental on this one, as this is very different from the books

      I went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie starring Robert Downey, Jr. as Sherlock Holmes, Jude Law as Dr. John Watson, and Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler. The movie involves Holmes and Watson capturing a man named Lord Blackwood who is the leader of a cult and sending him off to hang. Holmes is bore d after weeks of no cases when it appears that Lord Blackwood has been resurrected, prompting him to go out to discover

      the truth.

      This movie was really fun, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like it, but I had a good time watching it. This isn’t faithful to any of the stories but it’s interesting to watch. I think Robert Downey Jr. did a great job a Sherlock, although I wasn’t really used to Holmes being much of a fighter, it was an interesting take on the character nonetheless.

      Jude Law did great a Dr. Watson, and I’m ...


      • happy to say that they didn’t portray Watson as a buffoon who just followed Holmes around to be baffled and in awe of his detective skills. They actually made Watson a cool character too and that was a relief.

        Rachel McAdams was very good as Irene Adler. She was Holmes love interest and foil because she was one of the few people who could outwit Holmes. She was able to show all the different sides of

        her personality and be interesting at the same time.

        I liked this new Sherlock Holmes movie, it had action, adventure, comedy and a very good mystery and it was fun to watch. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good movie, but if you’re a Sherlock Holmes purist, you might want to wait for a rental on this one, as this is very different from the books. It’s a great movie and a lot of fun too.
