Sherlock Holmes (2009)


Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Director:

Guy Ritchie

Starring:

Robert Downey Jr.

Jude Law

Rachel McAdams

Plot:

Detective Sherlock Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.

Review:

I remember this movie being better. Maybe it’s my extreme dislike of Tony Stark coloring my opinion of Robert Downey Jr. in this movie, but I thought his British accent was horrible.

Sherlock, RDJ, is a brilliant detective with social issues that he doesn’t care to fix. Watson, Jude Law, enjoys the thrill of danger and adventure, but wants a more traditional life as well. They clash, but ultimately come together to prove that magic is not real. Irene Adler, Rachel McAdams, apparently is usually Sherlock’s foil and the only woman to ever best him. This time her incredible intellect is used to seduce Sherlock, be a damsel in distress, and then be caught by him. I’m sure she was able to escape once she got away from him, though.

3/5
