I have something to add to the post I uploaded a couple of posts back, where I wrote extensively about the expectations and recoveries from this film. I need to speak once more about Dr. Moriarty (quite till the point till I am obsessed between watching the Holmes–Moriarty face-off) and I need to talk about the actor playing the part.
As I have made quite clear already, Jared Harris is indeed quite exceptional and matches Holmes brilliantly at every step, there is one thing that must say, could have been done better. On second thoughts now, I believe that Brad Pitt could have just been a better choice. Because Jared Harris is good, but he doesn’t match up to the celebrity status of Robert Downey Jr., the man who plays Sherlock Holmes. However, Brad Pitt would have. And that would have been the more ideal face-off. Pity it was not to be so, and yes, giving true credit to Jared Harris for doing the unthinkable… thought I’d just put down the reassessment of my own thoughts though once.
