Guy Ritchie has been in the news for all the wrong reasons courtesy his much hyped divorce with Madonna and is in desperate need of a hit. The man behind Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch hasn't had anything to boast about since then.
So Sherlock Holmes based on the renowned work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional character is Ritchie’s bid for a career comeback. But if you though Ritchie would just make a screen adaptation of Doyle's Victorian-age detective you are wrong as Ritchie has given his own touch.
In 1890s London, Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr) and his trusty assistant Dr Watson (Jude Law) have just apprehended the murderous Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong), a master of the dark arts. He promises he will return from the dead and exact his revenge as he is being led to the gallows.
