a fun update on Sherlock Holmes

Downey is satisfying in his usual quick-witted way, but that and the fast-paced action are what this movie has to offer. If you're a long-time Sherlock fan, this might be a disappointment as it's not the cerebral, coldly logical version of Holmes that we're accustomed to.

Ok

Overall a good movie, but not really for Conan Doyle purists. The mystery was pretty good.

witty

their were lots of witty remarks made around the clock by all characters which made this movie fun to watch. Robert downey jr. and jude law both do great jobs portraying a mad genius and his assistant.

Amazing!

I really enjoyed this Sherlock Holmes movie. Robert Downey Jr. does a great portrayal.

Good mystery

I liked the mystery aspect of this movie. Very good.

A Fun and Different Take on Sherlock Holmes

I've heard some purists didn't like this because of the action aspect, but since I've never been a big mystery person (and haven't read the classic Holmes stories), I enjoyed it. Good action, funny dialog and rapport between the characters.

Sherlock Holmes

A trilling adventure about how Sherlock Holmes stop the evil lord blackwood.

Fantastic

I really think that this movie is rather predictable, but good nonetheless. You know that when Lord Blackwood is "killed" he'll rise up again. I think that this is a good portrayal of Sherlock as a man who is rather brilliant in deducing things from random facts. At the end, when Sherlock explains everything that happens, it's really interesting to see how he picked up on all those things. This mystery is great and is rather well thought out as Blackwood "rises again" and must be tracked down and killed. The parliament plot is suspenseful and Rachel McAdams does a good job being the hero there even though she's working for the Professor. All in all, a really great movie.

Interesting

The movie was really...interesting, in a good way.

Fine

I don't have a great deal to say about this one. It was fine. Some of the inventions (on the part of the writer and, therefore at times in the hands of the characters) were lazy. But some of the action was unique, so maybe it balances out. However, there's absolutely no excuse for this to be 128 minutes. Does Downey's contract stipulate how many thousands of frames his face must appear in?

A valid watch for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon with no better plans, or if you're home sick from school. You'll be entertained, but don't expect much more.
