"Watson, what have you done?"

After waiting six months for this movie to be released, I finally got to see Sherlock Holmes last night.  Because I've read nearly all of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novels and short stories, my expectations for the film were pretty high and I was worried about being disappointed.  Well, I shouldn't have been so concerned because the movie was more than satisfactory.  Director Guy Ritchie was able to capture the spirit of Holmes while adding in some (okay, a lot) of his own signature action sequences.

Fun Fact:  There is a line in the movie that is taken directly from one of the short stories (and believe me, I was completely ecstatic when I heard it).  Holmes says to Watson, "It makes a considerable difference to me, having someone with me on whom I can thoroughly rely."  It's from "The Boscombe Valley Mystery."
