Another film review....

This time Guy Ritchie's remake of Sherlock Holmes.

I like quite a bit of the work that Ritchie has done in the past like Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch & RocknRolla so I hoped that this new film might fit into the list of Ritchie films that I enjoyed.

Luckily it does, and comes in at #2 in the Ritchie list behind Snatch which is probably one of my top 5 favourite films ever.

Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law seem to bounce off each other very well, it is clear that the budget increase by working with Warner Bros. has helped quite a bit in making this a very polished and extremely enjoyable film.

The door is left wide open for Holmes & Watson to re-appear in a further installment to persue the evil Professor Moriarty, let's hope the returns on the first film make the 2nd possible and equally enjoyable.

It was so enjoyable, I will probably end up seeing this again at the cinema, and will definately buy it on DVD when released.
