Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law tried to embody unforgettable images of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson in this bold new film version. In G. Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes” the legendary detective shows not only his unmatched intelligence, but also considerable physical training as well.

Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong) frightened everybody not only with his hypnotic gaze, but also with awful patterns on the walls of the camera.
