being a huge fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's investigation novels since young age, Sherlock Holmes movie was equally a must-catch for me. however, i found it having a plot more suitable to be an action film than crime solving. unlike its novels where Holmes was presented as a person who put in a lot of thinking for his cases, Holmes presented on screen seemed to be a lot more hasty n careless. at some point, it even felt like the case was solved by pure luck.
