Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Stars : Robert Downey Jr. ,Jude Law,Rachel McAdams,Mark Strong.
Director : Guy Ritchie.
The famous Arthur Conon Doyle character Sherlock Holmes is brought to screen by Guy Ritchie and with a lot of hype surrounding it I was a bit sacred to watch it.But the movie is fantastic and very high on entertainment value.
Lord Blackwood is planning on something big ,that's predicted to change the face of the world and our Sherlock Holmes with Dr.Watson is destined to stop him.That's the crux of the story ,I guess there is no point in detailing the story of a detective movie.
Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes is brilliant.He looks great and acts superbly.I was apprehensive about his casting before watching the movie but now I am almost certain that he was just perfect as Sherlock Holmes.He has done some amazing action sequences and looks every bit Sherlock. He lends a raw look to the character and his styling also adds to the charm .Jude Law looks great as Dr.Watson and performs brilliantly.I think the on screen chemistry of Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr. works quite well in favor of the movie.Mark Strong looks every inch evil and is almost the perfect villain.He does his part exceptionally well and convinces as the dark Lord.The supporting actors too do their bit to make the movie a highly enjoyable experience.But the star of the movie is for sure Robert Downey Jr. who never falters as Sherlock Holmes.
One of the first things that drew me in favor of the movie was the camera work and the production value. The sets have been designed to almost perfection and impress a lot.
There are some amazing fight sequences in the movie which are bound to draw attention.The movie is very well shot and the direction is brilliant.There is that characteristic impression of Guy Ritchie ,the movie is tightly scripted ,very well edited, never lacks pace and always full of excitement .The slow motion sequences and the way a sequence is first shown and then what actually happens is great and makes it more enjoyable.The music is likable and the timing is also apt.
All in all a very highly entertaining movie which does not gives you anytime to lean back and put your mind to something else.I loved it and hope you like it too.
Plus :Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law,Fine direction ,pace of the movie and some fine action sequences.
Minus :I didnt find any.
