This movie's screenwriter Chris Columbus has said of this film in an interview with 'The New York Times': "The thing that was most important to me was why Holmes became so cold and calculating, and why he was alone for the rest of his life . . . That's why he is so emotional in the film; as a youngster, he was ruled by emotion, he fell in love with the love of his life, and as a result of what happens in this film, he becomes the person he was later".

(at around 35 mins) When Holmes and Rathe are fencing, Holmes drops his saber when he is cut, but in the next scene he is seen holding his saber - with no break in the dialogue to give him a chance to pick it up. See more »
Amazing, Holmes. Simply amazing. Of course, you did forget one very important clue.
Oh? Please enlighten me.
Well, "Rathe" is "Ehtar" spelled backwards.
Very clever, Watson. Well, I'm certain I would have arrived at that conclusion sooner or later.
Sooner or later.

[opening credit] The following story is original and is not specifically based on the exploits of Sherlock Holmes as described in the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. See more »
This is an awesome movie. The only drawback was the absurd dealing with the "flying machine." Other than that, sit back and enjoy as Watson and Holmes embark on their alleged first adventure as Holmes tries to find the link between a rash of recent murders, hallucinations people have been having, and a cult. Not a bad way to spend a few hours of your time!
