When you are looking for some good family entertainment, you couldn't do better. So Guy Ritchie, Robert Downey Jnr and Jude Law have only paid lip service to the classic Holmes and Watson which I grew up with. Try not to be too pure about it, what we have here is an original adaptaion, of an original classic, which is both entertaining and for the most part historically correct. Robert and Jude have sucessfully given these characters lives of their own. I loved it, so did the children, so much so that they have now down loaded the original classic tales onto their Kindles and are now happliy reading. Which has prompted some interesting discussions.
