… Mr Sherlock Holmes…
As a fan of crime investigation series, this is one of the best I’ve seen. I love the plot of the movie. Everyone seems to be ready to accept the fact that Lord Blackwood is really a witch. And everything turns out to be purely scientific.
Am I bias because Robert Downey Jr’s Sherlock? I think it might have some sort of an effect on my readiness to accept the dull colors of the cinematography (all grey and dull London…). If it’s not for the colorful character, I would probably have fallen asleep somewhere in the beginning. As for Dr Watson, his presence was not just a mere coincidence. I think he completes Sherlock Holmes. Their impeccable bromance is really the whole essence of the movie.
So my ratings? A strong B from me… Would I recommend it to everyone? Only if you love investigave drama, or Jude Law, or Robert Downey Jr, or dirty unbathed men.
