Sherlock Holmes

I was at the movie theatre yesterday and watched the latest Sherlock Holmes movie. The move was recommended by two friends: one who enjoyed it and another who said it's a good watch for people who don't mind a different approach to the usual Sherlock Holmes in the entertainment world.

I found that the movie follows its name well because the movie focused on both the mystery and the character Sherlock Holmes. The cast made the characters into their own and their acting is marvelous. I like how the music, props, and settings gave the right industrial London-esque atmosphere of a dark yet amusing mystery. The use of details in the movie were also well done.

I don't like how the beginning utilizes busy action scenes to capture the audiences' attention, but at least it works and wasn't too heavy. Overall, I believe Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes stands out because of its new approach of implementing humorous deviation to the name, but the humour is what lessens the movie's long-term impression.
