Review: It's nice when a movie surprises you. I was expecting something a little bit old fashion, dressed up with some hollywood stars, but Sherlock Holmes was definitely a worth while watch. Bringing a legendary character into the limelight with new depth of character, Robert Downey Jr was the suited the role perfectly as the genius, yet phycotic Sherlock Holmes.

Shown in a new light, Sherlock Holmes embarks on a mystery of magic & science against a foe with a talent for deception. We discover hidden talents as seen through Sherlock Holmes eyes, as his mind unravels the steps to incapacitate in detail. Sherlock Holmes extraordinary mind is always alert to detail and the underlying message, and is able to access that memory instantaneously. Full of mystery, deception & plenty of action, Sherlock Holmes is enjoyable on varying levels and well worth your time to watch. Jude Law & Rachel McAdams are also intriguing characters to watch, true to nature.
