Interesting take on the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and his trusty partner Dr. Watson. Holmes is as cunning as ever but certainly not as conventional as the Basil Rathbone portrayal. Dr. Moriarity is also included in the story to perhaps spawn a sequel. That my dear fellow is elementary.

very good

I grew up with the old black and white films with Basil Rathbone followed years later with Peter Cushing in Hammer Films. Holmes solved mysteries and problems with his brain; not by fighting. Downey is a fine actor but portraying Sherlock Holmes? I don't think so. This was one of the worst remakes I've seen in recent memory...

A violent take on SH if there ever was one. The simple scrutiny of tiny facts, 19th century forensics, and "elementary" logical thinking gives way to foreshadowed violent hyperbole.

Wonderful and unusual interpretation of Sherlock Holmes, but so violent. I got that it was a fairy story, in the sense that any one of the dangers they survived would have at least left them severely damaged if not a corpse, but even so, the effects were so good it was painful to watch all that pummelling, falling, burning, on and on and on, with rare breaks

The only good thing about this whole movie was Watson's dog was one comment and I totally agree....too much violence, bad acting, no chemistry between actors, and Downey was as usual full of himself. Plus I thought he was too old for the love interest. Mind you Jeremy Brett wasn't young when he played Sherlock, but it just seemed to flow from him, the characterization of Holmes......Downey seems to have trouble with playing someone other than himself.

I was pleasantly surprised by how good this version of Sherlock Holmes was. Different from all others. At the same level as Jeremy Brett's version in the long running British tv series.

RDJ and Jude Law are fantastic together, the plot's weird. The mood is steampunk/occult/Raiders of the Lost Ark. MPL's copy of this Blu-ray does NOT play nice with my player, it was practically unwatchable.

The frantic computer-generated action of this film is matched by the hyper portrayal of Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes. Downey is far too old for this role of what was meant to be a young, impulsive Holmes (his scenes with Rachel McAdams emphasize his age, her youth, and their zero sexual chemistry). Poor McAdams is out of her acting league amongst Downey's clever delivery and Jude Law's wonderfully understated acting as Watson. Jude Law's restrained portrayal as Watson is very good and he shines in a prison scene with Downey. Downey, alas, only seems to be Downey acting Downey, although he does an ok English accent. Downey's face bears the lines of a rather dissolute lifestyle and no signs of deep intellectualism. Downey does his best, but is miscast. Jude Law steals the show. McAdams should have stayed home. (The actress who plays Watson's girlfriend is quite good, tho'.) I'm curious where a Victorian woman would have found such form-fitting trousers??? Definitely should have had a stronger label than PG13 as the violence is over the top.

There is a problem and our best detective has to fix it. A *practicutioner* (can't spell) of "black magic" is jailed and hanged but he's still running amognst the citezens of what ever town (i think it is london) this movie is set in. He has caused a series of deaths that you can believe to be "black magic". Borrow this item to see the satonishing finish. It's not as it seems. :) Summary by: Nerdatron
