Sherlock Holmes

This film is one of the better versions of Sherlock Holmes.  I love the fact they’ve added a bit more to Watson’s character.  The film is based around Sherlock’s intelligence and that of his enemy Lord Blackwood…the policeman even says Sherlock Holmes could have been a criminal…to be told “crime is common, logic is rare”.  Sherlock uses his intellect for good and Watson gives Sherlock the people skills he needs. 

Sherlock Holmes warns at the beginning of the film against choosing ‘facts to suit theories instead of theories to suit facts’.  We are very good at doing this today – especially where faith is concerned. 

As Holmes says in many of Doyle’s stories, ‘When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.’
