My first big impression of Sherlock
Holmes is the visual picture of the 19th century -- gray,
grimy looks of industrial London.
The costumes, sets and the cinematography
is a big plus for this movie.
Next comes the story, built around master
detective Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson, who must stop Lord
Blackwood's murderous secret society and supernatural doings
(he seemingly has risen from the dead).
This film is really fun to watch, and Robert
Downey, Jr. made a great Sherlock Holmes, who should be around
for another sequal with this new image.
This is NOT the Sherlock Holmes you remember.
Gone are the meerschaum pipe and deerstalker
He's still a deducting genius, and his
love for his chronicler and best frind John H. Watson has not
Instead, we have a combination of brains
and brawn, as action hero and consulting detective dig deeply

Purists may cringe, but this Holmes will
surely stand the test of time.

The latest reimagined movie Sherlock Holmes
matches the 19th-century detective and his sidekick, Dr. Watson,
against the sinister Lord Blackwood, and occultist who claims
to have black magic powers.
Holmes the Victorian crime-fighter makes
use of both his martial arts sills and his famously deductive
mind to defeat the evil villain.
This big-budget studio production delivers
bare-knuckled fight scenes, massive explosions, and highly choreographed
It's a real iron-man blockbuster that looks
like a new beginning for Holmes and a quick sequel.
