Question: Just before Sherlock attacks somebody, he determines what areas to strike to incapacitate someone and determine how long it would take someone to recover from both physical and psychological trauma. Granted that he could figure out a person's physical recovery but, could he actually figure out a person's pyshological recovery? He noted that it would take six months if I remember for a guy to recover psychologically but, to me, Sherlock is just taking a wild guess. Especially, if the guy recovered in half the time.
Question: Lord Blackwood dies through a set of circumstances that cause him to be hanged via chain. My question is this - was it merely coincidence that he ended up in the wrong place and the wrong time for the chain of events to kill him? Or did Holmes know it was going to happen that way it did? It seems a little too convenient to me, so I can't help but wonder if Holmes knew the crane would collapse as it did, setting off the chain of events. (Whether or not he knew if would kill Blackwood).
Question: What's the name of the song playing in the background when Holmes and Watson fight with Dredger and the other two men in Reordan's flat? I looked everywhere, but I can't find it: it's not on the official soundtrack, either. Also, in the same scene, Watson starts off battling two men while Holmes takes Dredger, but later there is only one fighting with Watson. Where is he?benjyrabbit
Question: Outside Madison and Haig, a gypsy corners our dynamic duo and tells Watson his future. I figured out that Holmes was setting Watson up when I saw her in the crowd at the start of the 'crowded alley' scene, moving quickly to get into position outside Madison and Haig. But how does Watson realise that Holmes has set him up? He never saw the gypsy at the start, and all Holmes says at the time is 'Doilies'. Am I just being really slow?benjyrabbit
Question: I saw a trailer for the film in which the scene in the hotel (between Holmes and Irene Adler) appears to be different - she's wearing a short black and red outfit instead of the peach coloured one, and she physically knocks him out instead of drugging him (she first tries to use her hairclip as a weapon). Why was this changed, and is it on the DVD?cherry_girl
Question: So what tricks does Blackwood use to make the girl try to kill herself at the beginning? I don't get that part. Thanks.
