Summary: A new take on the old legend - Sherlock Holmes and the ever-present Watson are still on the case to unravel a nefarious plot to destroy the country, but this time he's just as keen using his fists as his mind. Sherlock is back and ready to make another movie of him in action. Robert Downey Jr.
Summary: Bringing his signature kinetic action directing style to a new universe, Guy Ritchie creates a film that shies away from the more philosophical elements of the Holmsian world in lieu of a slick and very entertaining action thriller.
Excerpt: Movie was much better than I thought it would be. Law and Downey Jr. were great together. I thought the PQ was top notch. Sure there was grain present, and heavy in some spots, but it fits the overall feel of the movie. Audio was strong and dynamic. 4.99 at Best Buy, so I couldn't pass it up.
Excerpt: I really enjoyed the film. Had me drawn in form beginning to end but its not without its flaws. The Audio was superb and on cue but the PQ quality needs work. To much Grain, Dark scenes did not look the best & there was some blurry scenes at times.
Summary: The movie was great, but it was a little complicated to understand. The acting was great, especially Robert Downey Jr. I would recommend this movie and the next one (A Game of Shadows). I look forward to seeing more Sherlock Holmes movies coming out!!!
Summary: I am a loyal Sherlock Holmes fan and loved the old Basil Rathbone, Nigel Bruce movies. However, Dr. Watson was portrayed as loyal but a bit of a bumbler. The orginal stories of Doyle portrayed him quite differently. Not on Holmes intellectual level but not a bumbler.
