Sherlock Holmes

Guy Ritchie’s transformation of Sherlock Holmes into an intellectual, flawed all-action hero could not have hoped to meet with greater success. Perfectly cast, not that Robert Downey Jnr ever disappoints, this is probably the most sophisticated on screen characterisation of Sherlock Holmes.

This is a gritty Holmes, cutting through the villain’s cloak of supernatural mumbo jumbo with force and reason. All in all a great update that banishes the stuffiness of previous adaptations.
