My verdict: I must admit that before meeting my husband Michael, I hadn’t actually watched any Sherlock Holmes films. He has since introduced me to Robert Stephens’ The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970) and Christopher Plummer’s Murder by Decree (1979). I loved both of those films so I was really excited to watch Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes film. I’m a big fan of Robert Downey, Jr., ever since I saw him in Weird Science (1985). I loved this version of Sherlock Holmes, and I was pleased to see Eddie Marsan was also in it who I love watching.

I highly recommend it, it’s a great action film 🙂
