About Sherlock Holmes
It's elementary, or is it? There is nothing elementary about the master detective and his ex-military assistant, Dr. Watson, as they team up to solve seemingly impossible cases. The brain child of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the late 19th century is the fastidious, eccentric British detective. A master of disguise and jest, the sagacious Holmes has a keen eye for details and quite literally leaves no stone unturned in his quest to solve the mystery or crime he is faced with on any given day. As out of the box as Holmes is, the amenable Dr. Watson, his trustworthy flatmate, confidante, and aide, keeps him grounded in reality. Sherlock seems to always have the prescription to solve the unsolvable. Robert Downey Jr. (as Sherlock) and Jude Law (as Watson) have chemistry that brings light and humor to their roles. The eclectic Holmes is the master of forensic science, and with limited resources, his crime-solving skills border on the exquisite. Starting out as a mere manuscript in a London gazette, Sherlock Holmes has grown in stature over the years to become a highly rated film. In any Sherlock series appears the recurring arch nemesis, James Moriarty, the crafty villain that is the basis of most of the devious plots that give Holmes and Watson little time for relaxation at their Baker Street residence in London. Modern-day detectives can learn a thing or two about examining a crime scene from the sometimes irascible but always astute Holmes. Having at his disposal the use of a modern forensic science laboratory, equipped with microscopic cameras, 19th century Sherlock has retired his magnifying glass and has been successfully reincarnated to master 21st century crimes.
