Robert Downey Jr. picks up the pipe in Guy Ritchie's action-packed reinvention of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. With the help of Watson (Jude Law), Baker Street's super sleuth must battle through all kinds of trouble to solve a case that threatens the future of good ol' Blighty.

On a quest to solve a string of mysterious and brutal murders, Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his trusted ally Watson (Jude Law) plunge into a world of dark arts and startling new technologies, where logic, and a good right hook, are the best crime fighting weapons. Explosive action, baffling mystery and astonishing intrigue follow the two in a race to uncover and foil a terrifying plot that threatens to destroy the country. Director Guy Ritchie helms the all-action adventure reintroducing the great detective to the world. Robert Downey Jr. is the new Sherlock Holmes!

 Reasonable action thriller, but poor Sherlock.

As an action movie with reasonable performances, decent set pieces and efficient plot, this is a pretty enjoyable romp, but it's quite a waste of the Sherlock franchise.

It probably doesn't help having the recent BBC series showing how it should be done, but even before that, it was clear that this was more akin to Young Sherlock Holmes than the classic stories.

There are nods to detective work and deduction, but mostly this film is about punching and slapstick. It's fun while it lasts, and does pave the way nicely for a hopefully superior sequel, but this is still at best an average movie.

utterly dire portrayal of one of the best known duo's in english literature, since when did holmes fight like bourne or watson creep upon a baddie and do him over with a strangehold?.
nevertheless a fairly good film just try to ignore the sherlock tie in

When i first heard about this Guy Ritchie version of Sherlock Holmes i was slightly worried after some of his more recent films left a bit to be desired.
Robert Downey Jr was great as Holmes and Jude Law who i am not normally a fan of is also very good as Watson. This film is a different take on a normal Sherlock Holmes adventure Holmes and Watson are very much more hands on with some brilliant fight scenes throughout the film and the film is a lot more gritty and dark than most other Sherlock Holmes films i have seen in the past.
The story is very well written and Guy Ritchie does a great job with the actors and gets the best out of them throughout the film.
I was very suprised with this film i thought i would not really like it after a few friends slated it and it being different to other Holmes films but i thought it was very good and im looking forward to the release on DVD and hopefully to the sequel after the addition of Holmes nemesis Morriaty.

WOW---what a fantastic film---
---my partner and i went to see this at the pictures and it was fantastic!!very dark because of the time it was placed but what a cast...Law and Downey Jnr really bounce off each other.
Well done Mr Ritchie----not liked much of your other stuff but this one was superb.
Look forward to the sequel..;-)
am certainly in the queue for a copy of this....!!!
