Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Mark Strong, and Rachel McAdams

Directed by Guy Richie

Release Date December 25, 2009

Absolutely a sheer delight. This film takes what one knows about Sherlock Holmes and expounds upon his personality: Here, Holmes is an obsessive-compulsive strategist/inventor/amateur bare knuckle boxer who needs the thrill of a mystery to keep his mind occupied lest he go mad in solitude. Also, the budding relationship between Holmes and Watson is fun, playful, and a thrill to watch, almost as if in another life these two sleuths could have been a vaudeville act. Go out and see this captivating mystery thriller. Also, if you're looking for another take on the Holmes series, look for Without a Clue starring Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley.

Rating: * * * * 1/2 of 5
