  London in 1890, literally at the last moment it is possible Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and to prevent his loyal assistant Dr. Watson (Jew Law), a ritual murder of a young woman. The sinister villain Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong), who is obviously in league with dark forces, was arrested and sentenced to death by hanging. And although Watson höchstselbst the death of the villain convinced seems to be reborn in a mysterious way, still shaken as a series of murders in London, the bears the signature of the satanic villain. While the British capital in hysteria and superstition expires, the strictly logical thinking detective from Baker Street 221 B sets out on the trail of the evil wizard and is nearing a conspiracy of enormous proportions. By the way, Holmes must fight against but also very different ghosts. On the one hand, Dr. Watson determined to the winsome Mary Morstan (Kelly Reilly) to marry, which disturbs the close relationship between him and his partners in a spirit sensitive. And on the other hand suddenly emerges even Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams) which one both beautiful and cunning woman who once taught Holmes and a serious defeat in which he is in love still. It begins a breathless hunt through the whole of London for the truth in a confusing maze of occultism, conspiracy and intrigue … With obviously a great effort and amazing tries against the grain brushed occupation of the two leading roles Guy Ritchie, the slightly dusty literary hero Sherlock Holmes scenic, at least into the 21 Century to translate. The result of the elaborate spectacle has become ambiguous and is aimed primarily at the American mass audience, which gets presented here, amongst a number of hair-raising action scenes especially simple way in which deductive reasoning works. In ultra slow motion and various flashback dissolves here as some magic by themselves in pleasure. The original Sherlock Holmes, as we knew him so far from the books of Conan Doyle and of countless films, has Guy Ritchie’s show over long distances to do a little frightening. Lord Blackwood, for example, appears in any of the novels. And Irene Adler is a figure which the literary template appears A scandal in Bohemia / A Scandal in Bohemia , but do not Holmes’ beloved, but his adversary is. However, many adaptations of Holmes stories have expressed the suspicion, the brilliant detective had to have had a love affair with his rival, obviously this is a perfect match to its unstable character. All this would not worry and certainly in terms of a reinterpretation and modernization of the figure, we did not see the handwriting Ritichies everywhere, on his typical tricks and links to another hero named James Bond film flashes. to complete the various fist fights, the Holmes in the course of the film, like a copy of a similar act scenes from Snatch – Pigs and Diamonds / Snatch, Ritichies income from the year 2000. Lord Blackwood were proto-fascism as a villain in the Gestapo leather coat and with reduced expression Mussolini from a magnificent Bond adversary, while his giant henchman parlierender and French as a replica of the legendary “Biter” Richard Kiel appears. In this picture then the equally spectacular as extremely artificial showdown matches the Tower Bridge. The literary model is thus a reservoir of pop culture references and cross references to water down the peculiarity and uniqueness of the shape of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s part, beyond recognition. has But there is also good news to report: Robert Downey Jr., who appeared for years versackt in drugs and his wife Susan co-produced this film presents itself seems remarkably fit and work up to a remarkable second career. Significantly, however, and less pale is charismatic Jew Laws failed interpretation of Dr. Watson, which may be due to the characteristics of the figure. Nevertheless, the two resulting in the truest sense of the word a powerful dynamic duo that hinweghilft the film on several glitches and inconsistencies of the story, at least as many potholes as having the cobblestones of London in 1890. Downright annoying, but somehow typical of the thinking that currently prevails in mainstream cinema, is the quite outrageous and obvious penetrating Cliff Hanger to the already planned sequel Sherlock Holmes 2nd It remains to be seen whether the public vote with their feet the producers here does not make a spanner in the works. Anyone familiar fun action in historical garb, without too much demand and with set pieces from various works of popular culture (next to James Bond acts as a reference, the whole pseudo-occult background in part as a parody of the novels of Dan Brown’s) has which should be in Guy Ritchie film in a simple way to feel entertained. Fans of the true but Holmes is the bombastic spectacle almost certainly fast on my nerves. Especially since they could quickly hit upon the idea that their hero is used here merely as a vehicle for one uninspired action spectacle that significantly cross-eyed for commercial success and the optimal evaluation for the purposes of various sequels.
