comment after watching : i watched these two movies on DVD in a row yesterday. As for Sherlock Holmes, it was indeed such an entertaining movie with unpredictable plot and really amusing to the point that i couldn't blink or take a breath for a while due to the suspense and fast moving plot.I can't wait to see the sequel, cause its gonna be interesting to see Holmes's opponent ,Prof Moriarty.Meanwhile the 2nd movie,Solomon Kane was a failure in my point of view,due to predictable plot, where some scenes just ridiculous and confusing.especially when the first demon and the last demon appeared in a different way although it was the same character.
