I wasn't excited to see this movie, but my husband was interested. I went happy to look at Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law for a couple of hours, and surprisingly ended up really liking the movie! It was exciting and didn't lose my attention. The thing I liked best was the scenes where Sherlock thought through something, so anything that could have been confusing was easy to follow and appreciate. This movie is probably best watched on the big screen.

Robert Sexy Action Movie Star

While implausible at times, this movie was thoroughly entertaining. I especially liked the performances by RDJ and Jude Law. Their chemistry as Holmes and Watson definitely warrant the obvious set up for a sequel. The presentation of Holmes deductive genius as well as his crass and distracted manner was very fun to to watch. It was a refreshing take on the legendary sleuth. If for no other reason go see it for Jude Law's moustache.

Found it to be, like most Ritchie flicks, a little confounding and overwhelming as far as story line. Could use more editing. Having said that, Robert Downey Jr.'s on-screen charisma is rarely disappointing and he and Jude Law play wonderfully off of each other. The backdrop of Old England is great and well crafted for the screen... it's just a little much.

Jude Law and Robert Downing Jr. are as charming as ever and I immediately fell in love with both of them. The action was extraordinary and the plot mesmerizing. Pay attention though, and don't leave to refill your popcorn, or you will be left behind to try to catch up and figure out the sarcasm that flew while you were gone. A person has to be able to follow a complicated plot, so children under 12 would not enjoy anything but the action.
