Sherlock Holmes is one of my favourite action/adventure films, but it’s really difficult to narrow it down to just one. I’m a huge Robert Downey Jr fan, and not just because he’s drop dead gorgeous (but obviously that plays a big part! 😛 ) Sherlock Holmes has a great atmosphere and is visually stunning. It’s very clever and is an interesting and fun take on the original stories. Guy Ritchie actually refers back to the first Holmes stories, where Holmes was more of a rough and eccentric nut case than the sophisticated and suave gentlemen that have been represented in other adaptions.
I love the soundtrack, Hans Zimmer always does a fantastic job of composing film scores and the Sherlock Holmes soundtrack is no exception. Everything about the film is enjoyable, fun and exciting, the action is great and the humour very clever. What’s not to love?!
