Sherlock Holmes Review

Saturday, 27 February 2010
Love him or hate him, I think Guy Ritchie is a talented director.  Why?  He somehow imagines unique shots and sequences that not only tell the story well but also make the viewer lean forward during the film.

I watched Sherlock Holmes 2009 tonight which incorporated some of my favorite actors, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.  The film was edited by James Herbert and I loved every second of it.  The movie was a success in my book and I'm critical when it comes to movies.  Please do see it when you get a chance.

I visited many of the places shown in the film while I completed my Master's degree. Watching it made me a bit nostalgic.  I loved seeing Baker Street, the Thames near Big Ben and of course Parliament. I can't wait to visit again.

Kinglsey works just off Baker Street and sees the big statue of Sherlock Holmes every day as I did when I went to the main campus of the University of Westminster.  The statue is enormous and to be honest, annoying to step around while trying to rush through the cross walk with a mass of tourists.  After watching the movie, however, I'll be sure to pay more heed to Mr. Sherlock when I exit onto Baker Street.
