My Penny of View : Irene Adler, Sherlock Holmes' lover, was delivering a package to Dr. Hoffmanstahl. He opened the package and triggered a hidden bomb but detonated by Holmes. Adler later met up with Professor Moriarty for clarification for the incident and showed intention to quit. Unfortunately, she has been poisoned due to her love, Holmes, always the one that failed Moriarty's business. It was Dr.Watson's wedding and he went to see Holmes to remind him about the wedding. He found out that Holmes was investigating on unrelated murders, terrorist attacks and business acquisitions but somehow all the incidents seems related to Professor Moriarty. Holmes brought Watson to a bar for his bachelor night with intention to investigate on the missing of Adler. He met with Simza and at the same time an assassin appeared to kill her. Holmes managed to defeat him and Simza ran away. During the honeymoon of Watson and wife, Moriarty's men attacked them and Holmes showed up in time to rescue them. Seems like another adventure of Holmes and Watson has begin. What will happen to them? Will they able to solve the mystery?

Another series of Sherlock Holmes. For those who like to read mystery and investigation story, this movie is a must watch movie. Robert Downey Jr. the most well matched for the character of Sherlock Holmes. He enlighten the movie with his catchy, funny and smart acting. Sherlock Holmes has great analytical skill and also good fighting skill. His partner, Dr.Watson always is the one who understand Sherlock Holmes and they are the perfect partner. The beginning of the movie makes you confuse, then slowly the mystery reveal and finally bad guys defeated. Besides magnificent actors and fine story line, the movie incurred some slow motion effects. One of the scenes which Sherlock Holmes and gang escaped from a weapon factory, the bullets and bombs flying between them, the effects was awesome. The movie used old fashioned British English and they keep talking. Some people might find boring with this kind of movie but I'm the opposite because of my curiosity. I'm glad that I can understand the whole movie.

★★★★★
