Cinema-Reader Synopsis:

Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) is back on the business.

Now, and always alongside his loyal mate Dr. Watson (Jude Law), is determined to sort out another challenging mystery. In this case, what at a first sight seems the resurrection among the death of Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong), a mysterious black wizard who has threatened the British Crown and the order established on the Victorian London.

Cinema-Reader Review:

New adaptation of the adventures devised by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but through a different looking glass, as now Holmes jumps around and punches as a real nowadays hero.

It’s certain that Ritchie has given his very own personal expression onto this 21st century version of one of the most famous detectives of all time.

Action scenes shot with Ritchie’s personal touch that evokes his finest pieces (Snatch and Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels) and makes the movie run as fast as the viewer entertain himself with the visual usage of the camera as well as light and darkness.
Movie fulfils with its primary outcome: Entertain.
