Sherlock Holmes: Victorian Knights #1

In the early s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons. Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing.

They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding. Jack Sparrow races to recover the heart of Davy Jones to avoid enslaving his soul to Jones' service, as other friends and foes seek the heart for their own agenda as well. Blacksmith Will Turner teams up with eccentric pirate "Captain" Jack Sparrow to save his love, the governor's daughter, from Jack's former pirate allies, who are now undead.

After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil. Captain Barbossa, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann must sail off the edge of the map, navigate treachery and betrayal, find Jack Sparrow, and make their final alliances for one last decisive battle. Stu's plan for a subdued pre-wedding brunch, however, goes seriously awry. Jack Sparrow and Barbossa embark on a quest to find the elusive fountain of youth, only to discover that Blackbeard and his daughter are after it too.

Agent and an Interpol Detective track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances, and reward their audiences with the money. After finally catching serial killer and occult "sorcerer" Lord Blackwood, legendary sleuth Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson can close yet another successful case. But when Blackwood mysteriously returns from the grave and resumes his killing spree, Holmes must take up the hunt once again.

Written by The Massie Twins. Somehow, i've always avoided the cinematic or TV presentations of Sherlock Holmes. I find the character fascinating, but i always felt it was more invested in literature, not cinema. His deductions, the way he surrounds the worlds he investigates are a feast for thinking minds. Even when the deductions are over the top which happens often! More than that, the character is a perfect piece invested in a clever, irresistible and fascinating world. That part is visual, and a good ground to invest a cinematic world. But, unlike for example anything by Agatha Christie, Doyle's cleverness is rooted in pure deductive logic, not on the mechanics of the world.

Notice that Christie's crimes are many times a matter of understanding how things happened, spatially murder on the orient express is the zenith of that. I suppose Doyle formed his mind before cinema had any significant impact on how our minds work. So the challenge for any modern filmmaker, and actor, who wants to update Holmes, is to make the character more cinematic, more appealing.

Several tricks are used here, most of them successful, even if straightforward.

Comic Review: Sherlock Holmes: Victorian Knights

One is the most obvious, making Holmes an action character which actually is in its original dna, even though TV productions usually ignore that. This might be a flop, and make the version laughable, but by now there is a sense of irony and self awareness in Ritchie's films sincer Lock Stock that allows him to support a xxi century action figure in Holmes clothing that actually is watchable. A minor trick here is the association of the deduction with the very process of physical fighting, which creates some Matrix moments.

Well, their watchable, though not particularly interesting. In the greater arc, there are good action sequences, because, as any competent action these days, considers the elements of the surrounding space, and uses them. But there are two big things in this film, which take it to new levels of interest. One is the acting. Jude Law is a clever guy, an interesting actor whose greatest quality is how he merges anonymously with the context he is intended to integrate. He willingly becomes a piece of a larger tapestry, and that really is something to look upon.

There are not many actors who can claim they can do this competently. But the king of the game is Downey Jr. He is the gold piece in the puzzle of updating Holmes. There certainly will be a before-after Holmes character, with this film. The man is capable to work his performances on several directions, and each of them is a perfect link to its surroundings.

So he gives in to Ritchie's demands, and introduces humour, irony, and self-awareness in the character, to make it usable for the director's winks at ironic action. He invests totally on the creation of a character who merges with the textures of the context, while being distinct from it.

And while doing it, he folds us into his game, so we do everything with him, side by side. We deduce, we smile, we run, all with him. So, if the film hadn't other qualities, Downey Jr would still make it worthy, because he, alone, solves one the most basic problems with any film: to find a channel audiences can safely cross into the game someone director proposes. He is one of the best ever. But there is another great thing here, which i suspect has a lot to do with several guys involved in the process of making the film.

The result is an incredible sense of placement. London, XIXth century. All those dirty muddy streets, all the dirt. The fascination of the inner locations, namely the midget's laboratory. How those sets are usable, in the action scenes. That's all competent, more than competent. It's perfectly rendered, carefully photographed, it sounds overly artificial, but it's a matter of taste, i suppose. But what was really striking was the use of the London bridge. Notice how it is announced, early in the film, with a similar perspective to the one we'll get in the end.

The next day, Holmes and Watson arrive at Whitby by train and visit the residence of the solicitor Mr.

Upon ringing the doorbell, there is no response. Suspicious, and not believing nobody is home given the size of the house fit for having servants, Holmes brings out his tools to lock-pick the door. Once inside, they find everyone in the household are dead.

Through Watson's observation, the bodies are afflicted with the final-stage symptoms of bubonic plague. Holmes beckon Watson on how long bubonic plague would kills its victim, which the doctor gives about two to six days. Holmes takes note that given the state of the victims they were going about their everyday business when they died where they fell.

Holmes and Watson enter Mr. Billington's office and finds his corpse on his desk where all his manifests are ransacked. Holmes tells Watson that given Billington was only a solicitor, he was delivering the Demeter's cargo for someone and was killed along with everyone connected to him to make his contact anonymous. They search the office and find an open envelope containing dirt, which Holmes deduced as "scientific earth".
