PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Crime
Detective Sherlock Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.
After Guy Ritchie signed on as the director, he insisted that the two most common clichés of Sherlock Holmes - the "Elementary, my dear Watson" quip and Holmes's deerstalker - be dropped entirely.
Head cocked to the left, partial deafness in ear: first point of attack. Two: throat; paralyze vocal chords, stop scream. Three: got to be a heavy drinker, floating rib to the liver. Four: finally, drag in left leg, fist to patella. Summary ...
A scratch appears on Sherlock's right cheek, then disappears by the next scene.
The credit for costume designer is shown over a frame from the scene in which Holmes is handcuffed to Irene's bed, not wearing any clothes at all.
