Film Review: Sherlock Holmes

I saw this movie with the lovely Kelly Reilly co-starring with Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and Rachel McAdams during the Christmas holiday weekend and the theater was very full especially on its first opening weekend.

Check out and read my review of this film below!

But first...

Synopsis

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.

I thought Sherlock Holmes was pretty good. It had all the action, adventure, comedy, suspense, and mystery that I love and enjoy watching in a film. The story was good, interesting, witty, and funny. I've never read the book or its previous adaptations/versions, but I quite liked and enjoyed this one. The main cast and their acting/performances (esp. Robert Downey Jr.) were superb. Robert Downey Jr. as the title
character Sherlock Holmes was very impressive and funny in this film as does his British accent was pretty good. I loved and enjoyed him in this film very much. Jude Law was great as well, not too mention, handsome and charming as Dr. John Watson, Holmes' friend and confidante. Rachel McAdams was great too, but it would have been awesome to see her in more scenes with RDJ and Jude Law. Still, she was great as Irene Adler, Holmes romantic interest and adversary. Mark Strong was pretty good as the bad guy,

Lord Blackwood. And Kelly Reilly (aka the unlikable Caroline Bingley of the 2005 film, Pride & Prejudice) was pretty goood here too (as Mary Morstan) considering she had a small supporting role. Like Rachel McAdams, It would've been great to see here in more scenes too. She does have a few very good scenes with the two main lead male characters and she's a love interest to Jude law's
Watson character. I especially love her first scene with Holmes and Watson at a hotel/restaurant dinner
scene when she asked Watson to read her. I thought that scene was very funny her character Mary did not approved of the way Holmes read her.  I thought that was funny especially Holmes' reaction and facial expression when and after she did that to him.
