1965. He is married to Deborah Falconer. Hew lives in

Malibu California. He has an older sister named Alyson and she and him grew up in Greenwich Village. He starred in the movie Restoration where he young physician who saved a peasants life.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows


This movie was about a spy and his friend trying to take down an adversary, Professor Moriarty. This movie took place in England which is where Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick live. However they travel around the globe hunting Moriarty down. At one point in the movie Holmes and his sidekick, Watson tried breaking into Moriarty’s safe house of all his weapons. This was an action packed scene with lots of gun fighting and wit. Another interesting part was when

Moriarty and Holmes are fighting at the end and they plan their entire fight and then Holmes and him both get thrown off the ledge.

A “Must See” Movie

This is worthy of an Academy Award because it was very well filmed. It had a very intriguing plot and kept the audience glued to the screen. It was truly action packed and was full of jokes. They discovered a way to combine comedy and action into one movie.

Lastly, Robert Downey Jr. did a very good job.

• Never-ending
