I had lent my viewpoint of the super sleuth from the portrayal of him by Basil Rathbone. Watching movie after movie of Sherlock and Watson over the years done in such a way, I had just taken for granted that this is the way our detective was written also. While studying, the movie really made me wonder; how was Doyle's original interpretation written? So I went in to crack the books a bit. I had formed an opinion based on a screen performance through time that isn't altogether correct.
Doyle's books bring to light a multi-layered Sherlock Holmes that would go into the future and not become anything stodgy limited to just one time period. He is actually an everyman, and one who is steeped in all the knowledge that Guy Ritchie introduced to the audience in this action packed film. I am sure many of us found the Sherlock that we thought we knew to be a polar opposite of the man we see here, although this is Doyle's man of Baker Street. Guy Ritchie did a brilliant job portraying his lead, Robert Downey Jr., as Holmes and gave Jude Law a new well rounded Watson for us all to see for the first time.
The movie itself hails the duo to be a new "reintroduced" vision and in part that is true. "Sherlock Holmes" brings to life Doyle's original writing of the books and is far more closely related to this screen adaptation, in my judgment, from studying. What an awesome surprise for me. Everyone who has read any of the books and/or only has seen the different screen adaptations, keeping those portrayals to reflect the scope of Holmes alone; you must do your imagination a huge favor and introduce Ritchie's everyman super sleuth to yourself again.
Sherlock Holmes is so faceted with tons of nuances shown here in this movie from the novels. He is so many things all rolled up in one man of action and completely cerebral throughout, a man of then and a man for now. He is steeped in many realms of thinking, as he is also just as much a defender of those truths. A bare knuckle fighter and well versed in the martial arts, Doyle wrote him extremely well rounded to be a thinking man of adventure.
Sherlock and Watson explode into this movie, using every trick in the books and show us a very real and exciting duo. Now that I know how these characters were originally written, I can clearly see that this is an important movie setting the standard back to the original.
I have already seen the second film and thought it far reaching because I didn't do my homework ahead of viewing it. Now I can hugely appreciate this movie as definitely I will watch my judgment of things without knowing the facts first. If you enjoyed this movie as I did, you're in for a real treat with viewing the second film. It is as if you are getting the same Holmes and Watson here plus adding so very much more.
Enjoy the first movie again, perhaps before viewing the second. It is worth a second look with a new perspective and refreshed open mind.
