The Best Pieces Of Sherlock Holmes Movie Wisdom

While Robert Downey Jr's incarnation of Sherlock Holmes might have featured him involved in more fights than we usually expect from the character, he also relied on his sharp tongue to get out of fraught situations. And he wasn't alone, with the scripts providing plenty of opportunities for the characters to deliver some intriguing pearls of wisdom.

As we impatiently wait for news on the forthcoming third instalment, we've decided to take a look back at Guy Ritchie's first two big screen Sherlock outings and pick out the greatest wise words from Holmes et al.
