The movie in my mind was suprisingly impressive. Im pretty amazed that the director actually pulled it off. And they've already set the story up for a sequal. Also i love Jude Law's british accent.

My friends don't want to see it

I saw Avatar instead, and that wasn't too bad. I definitely need to see sherlock holmes though.

Last time I checked, the Sherlock Holmes books dont contain countless action scenes and impossible feats of physical strength. They contained mystery solving, which was sparse, to say the least, in that movie.

I liked sherlock holmes. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude law played their parts perfectly. The story was a little out there, but nothing a little suspension of disbelief won't fix. I thought the whole movie was just fun.

Yeah, if you loved the Sherlock Holmes of old, then you'll hate the Sherlock Holmes of new.


I enjoyed the movie though.

way better than avatar really. Honestly Avatar was okay but James Cameron needs to make sure his movie litterally kills titanic before he decides to blow 700 million on it.

I love the SH stories. I've read them over 5 times. Thought the movie was a bastardizaton but if i want a good recount of the stories i would read the books. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and love the take on it.

well i was orginally like "Oh great another movie with scenes of magic and wizardy being real when its not suppoused to."

*Spoiler*

I'm actually glad sherlock proved the atagonist was just using illusions to trick people into thinking he was magic.
Peace my brothers!!!!

I thought the movie was alright, not great though. I didnt like the magic route they took. Seemed too easy. I wish it was just more involved, but it looks like a sequel is on the horizon. Oh, and I thought Avatar was better :/

It was surprisingly good as I came in with super low expectations.

I doubt I would've enjoyed it without RDJ or Jude Law.

This movie sucked, and Avatar was good, but not as amazing as everyone has said it was, I still stand that the best movie this year was Inglourious Basterds

This man has sense. Oh, and I quite liked Zombieland. Not that it was in the same league as Inglorious Basterds, but just sayin.

True. But then again so did Sherlock Holmes.


I thought the movie was good. Sure the story was predictable at times, but it was fun. I didn't really find any dull moments, which is always a good thing.


RDJ and Jude Law made the movie. Every other character could have been replaced by someone else and it wouldn't have mattered much. In fact I WISH they would have chosen someone else to play Lord Blackwood. I think Mark Strong did a weak job with the character.

Guy Ritchie is actually the reason I went to see it. I would watch any movie by the same man who directed Snatch.

Quite good movie. Interesting and engaging storyline, the acting was superb and fun and overall, it was well done. Ran Avatar into the ground in that aspect. Try to think it as an entirely different entity to the novel. That's what I did.

I haven't even seen it and am raging anyway at the cast of RDJ as Holmes.

For chrissakes, the man could barely play a buffoonish Watson. Even that would be an insult to Watson. Casting him as Holmes was simply criminal.

And the trailer was painfully deviant from the stories themselves. Doyle would die of shame.

If I wanted a good recount of the stories I would watch the series with Jeremy Brett and forget that this travesty ever existed. Screw it, I'm doing that anyway.

As someone who isn't all that familiar with the book I really enjoyed the movie. Only real complaint was I felt like Rachel McAdams got overshadowed by RDJ. Seems like her character could have been written better
