The Best Ever Movie Fight Scenes - Sherlock Holmes

The bare-knuckle brawl Robert Downey Junior engages in with a street-fighter is one of this 2009 movie’s highlights and it is right at the start. The grittiness and squalor of the arena captures the feel of crime-torn London, and Holmes’s drug-addled neurosis perfectly. The Irish jig music (by The Dubliners) gives a sense of humour to a dark struggle in which Holmes is initially pulverized. His stance changes when he sees Irene Adler and methodically thinks through every move he is about to make to destroy his formidable opponent, down to the last broken rib and jaw dislocation. Then he just does exactly what he described to himself, bringing his deductive sharp mind to the fore in a brutal scrap, in the ultimate balance of brawn with brains. Somehow the rest of the film never recaptures the magic of this early event. Youtube – the fight scene from Sherlock Holmes Arthur Chappell

I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, but I have not seen this movie. I think I am going to search online to have a look.

Sherlock Holmes heads to his Mind Palace
But the BBC series following it (starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) pick right up where that scene left off! And I love The Dubliners! https://youtu.be/3U4C2AIHAYc

It is a good example for how Sherlock is portrayed as one who considers the outcome of his every action - although not my favourite scene from the Downey Holmes films. I prefer the shoot out in the train, where he disguised himself as a woman, among others.
