After watching Sherlock Holmes, I can’t help but reminisce my high school days where my friends and I were avid readers of Sherlock Holmes stories.  I always get a kick on how Sherlock would explain how he would arrive to certain conclusions based on his powers of deductions.

And the movie version did just that.  There are many scenes that Sherlock displayed his deductive powers and this is especially satisfying to old fans like me.  The last part in particular is an excellent display of how Sherlock solved the mystery of Lord Blackwood’s supposed resurrection and it was cleverly shown in flashbacks and replays as we hear Sherlock’s narration in the background.  Nice touch!

What really gave me the goosebumps is a certain shadowy figure which later was revealed as Sherlock’s old archenemy — Professor Moriarty!  I’m guessing that he will figure in a bigger part in the inevitable sequel.  I’m really so engrossed in the world of Sherlock that I think I’m writing with a British accent already :)

BTW, kudos to both Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law for bringing the parts of  Holmes and Watson to vivid life.  See you in part two!
