Jake’s Review of Sherlock Holmes

January 9, 2010

I’ve been excited for this film for about the last year and a half. I’ve been patiently waiting in that time, rereading the original stories mostly, and let me tell you, this film is one of the best of the year.

This film was fun, in fact it was probably one of the most fun films I’ve seen in a long while. Robert Downey Jr. was an awesome Holmes and Jude Law as Watson was great. The story was very newbie friendly, but also had some great references to those who have read the short stories and novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, like the reference to both Mycroft and Moriarty.

The visual effects were also very well done. When Holmes and Blackwood are having their final battle over the Thames was done perfectly. I felt like at any moment they could either fall to their deaths, and being afraid of heights probably didn’t help that.

The film was great and needs to be viewed by all. I give Sherlock Holmes a 4/5
