Movie review: Sherlock Holmes

Last night I watched Sherlock Holmes. Or, as I like to call it, Mr. Iron Man Goes To Merry Olde England. Englande.

I won't ruin the plot for you, but I will go through some of the pertinent plot points. First, Sherlock Holmes is a ninja. Or something. Also, he solves crimes.

That's about it. Or at least that's all I can say without giving anything away. All in all, it was a very entertaining movie. Also, it was a surprisingly clean movie. There was some fighting, which wasn't too graphic, there was no sex (some very funny innuendo, but I thought the funnyness overrides the badness) and I don't remember any swearing.

Sherlock's accent was surprisingly good. I mean, who knew that our old friend Tony could sound that English?  And Jude Law was a great Dr Watson.  A+

I was not surprised by Mr. Stark's performance. But Jude Law was a much better Watson than I expected. I attribute this mostly to his AWESOME facial hair.

Which reminds me... time to go read Hark, A Vagrant!

Thanks for the tip about a watchable and enjoyable movie. Sounds like Dad might enjoy it. :)

Yeah, that was a pretty awesome soup strainer he sported.
