Just minutes ago I returned from the movie theatre upon seeing Sherlock Holmes (2009). I must say, I was thoroughly entertained! Robert Downy Jr. (Holmes) is spectacular and his Golden Globe was much deserved.
This film did was movies are supposed to do: entertain. The acting was solid. The story was definitely a Sherlock Holmes mystery, very well written. The music (by Hans Zimmer) was spectacular. It was the best music I’ve heard since Harry Potter 6. Here’s a song that’s not on the soundtrack, but featured in the end credits:
If you haven’t yet seen it, go ahead!
P.S. They are already planning a sequel, and Brad Pitt is probably going to be the villain.
Sherlock Holmes runs 128 minutes and is rated PG-13. Most kids would be fine watching this one…. 9 ramheads out of 10 for a purely entertaining experience.
