My husband and I both thought this was one of the best movies we've seen in a long time. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law were meant for these roles. The plot was fantastic and the movie was hilarious. There was no boring pause in it like you find in some movies. I would recommend this DVD to everyone.

I am a big fan of Downey and he is as good as he always is in this movie. I did expect it to be slightly more funny and less Gothic. (By Gothic I mean in terms of late 19th century Gothic not as some teens are now) All in all I was entertained but it is not a movie I would watch over and over. The HD was good and some of the visuals were awesome in an artistic way. The plot was good if a little far out (but I like sci-fi, so I don't mind reality being stretch a little) I would recommend this movie for any Downey or Jude Law fans as they were great. The script was interesting enough for me to want to read the Sherlock Holmes books, if not just to see how well the movie was adapted from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's imagination.

I liked this movie more than I thought I would. I was leery of "updating" the classic Conan Doyle stories but this movie works. The action sequences (which I thought would not fit into a Holmes story) were well done and credible. The chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law is outstanding.

To start off, I bought this movie at the beginning of March 2011. I remember when this movie first came out in theaters and was ranked as one of the "must see" movies playing. If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan or just someone who likes to have fun with solving mysteries, while enjoying some humor between two colleagues, then this movie is something that I recommend you should watch. The cast and crew who filmed this movie did an outstanding job in reinventing Holmes and Watson for a modern day crowd, while at the same time not losing the questionable elements that made Holmes and Watson such a intriguing pair of friends to follow on various adventures. This movie is basically a prequel to the introduction of Holmes so called arch-nemesis, Professor Moriarty. Although, you don't get to see any distinguishable features of the "Napoleon of Crime," throughout the movie. It does set Holmes up for a confrontation with the evil Professor, sometime in the undetermined future. The main villain in this movie is Lord Henry Blackwood, which is played by the actor Mark Strong. Holmes and Watson are first shown rushing off to stop a murder in progress. Which unavoidable leads the two friends on yet another adventure to solve a mystery that if left unchecked, will allow the criminal mastermind to kill everyone in a position of power and take over an entire country. Quite a few people would like to say that the best qualities of this movie are its fast pace action scenes, referring to the fighting scenes, combined with the humor of Holmes and Watson. While this assessment is true for the most part, one must also take the time to mention how this movie shows a more in-depth look into how Holmes views the world in comparison to a normal person. In some of the past movies of Sherlock Holmes, the directors and crew weren't able to vividly show the audience an in-depth look into how fast and accurately Holmes mind works when he plots a move from one point to another. But with the increase in technological advancements today, the producers can accurately show an audience a clear, slow motioned picture of how deadly Holmes is when he is either fighting in battle or just quickly piecing together something that puzzles him. As I stated in the opening paragraph of this review, if you are a fan of mysteries or just want to enjoy the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, then I recommend that you take the time to enjoy this movie. (Side Note: I don't give any review the maximum amount of stars because of the fact that their is always going to be something that a person doesn't like to happen in a movie, book, audio cd, soundtrack, etc. So if you see any review under my name and their is 1 less star from the maximum amount, then you can basically assume that the review got maximum points in my opinion.)

Downey Jr. is a great actor and makes the role fun. However, the plot in question was a bit too complicated and grandiose for a Sherlock Holmes caper brought to the big CGI / Green Room screen. The flashbacks cleverly fill in the holes of the mechanical plot, but while we want to root for the hero, we are introduced to him in the midst of chaos instead of seeing a glimpse, perhaps, of how he came to be such a master detective. I think flaws in characters, seeing early love affairs and pain from childhood help mold a character, and assists the audience in identifying with him on a more personal level. In this flick, you don't get that sort of bonding time... so... 3 stars it is. I didn't connect with Holmes. I somehow knew he'd succeed without any question. It weakened the film. The film could have been twice as wonderful with more of a character study on a budding Holmes, rather than a waning one.

I loved this movie. Sherlock Holmes the famous detective of 221B Baker Street is not the regular genius with Dr. Watson as his following lap-dog. No, in this movie he is a co-dependent neurotic genius, with Dr. Watson his friend, close as brothers. Dr. Watson, smart, independent with a sense of responsibility for the welfare of Holmes, tries to balance life with Holmes and life with his fiancee. This movie showing the train of thought of Holmes was brilliant, I loved seeing how he came to his conclusions. If ever there was a movie I just enjoyed for the fun of who-done-it this is the one topper. The cheeky dialog and action kept me going through the whole movie.

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are perfectly in sync with their respective characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. The opening scene gives the audience a perfect insight in how well they work together on a case. The banter is sharp and concise; their physical precision during a fight plays to each others strength and at the same time show the characters are watching each others back. Downey always seems to do his best work playing damaged characters, of course people have been saying that since the 1980's. His performance of Holmes displays the keen intellect and attention to detail; and then the flip side shows a dark, needy soul. When Holmes is not working he locks himself away in his room, performing dangerous experiments. Law presents Watson as a man of action, able to handle himself in a fight and ready for the next adventure. Yet Watson is conflict because he wants to settle down and lead a normal life. I'm ready for the sequel!

Love It!! Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law make the perfect movie duo. Action packed and tons of humor makes this movie a Top 10 movie of the year! This is a wonderful spin on the Sherlock Holmes adventures that we all grew up with. The slow-mo action scenes are unbelievable. Robert Downey Jr. has made such a grand come back to the silver screen with Iron Man 1 & 2, and now adding Sherlock Holmes to his "Hit List" is a major two thumbs up! This is truly one to add to your movie library. My favorite format is the Blu-Ray combo pack, it comes with both Blu-Ray and DVD set with extra features disk. What are you waiting for.Get it today!

When I first heard about this movie, I was not sure that it would be good. After seeing the movie, I was really impressed with Robert Downey Jr character and the "science" used in the movie to add to the mystery of Sherlock Holmes. The slow motion descriptive parts that Holmes described before he fought someone was really cool. The overall story of the movie was developed very well.(69) The storyine was perfert for the time and London looked realistic as if I was really in London during the late 1800's. The finale was great, with the introduction of Dr. Moriarty throughout the movie was interesting and should lead to a sequal. The violin playing, Holmes Baker St home was fit the origial character perfectly. A great movie to see!

This is not your literary Sherlock Holmes, and nor should you expect it to be if you find out that Robert Downey Jr. is playing him. He plays the perfect lovable crazy-ass drunk, and I mean that in the best way possible. I love his Tony Stark, and I love his Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes was always one of those characters I should have been head-over-heels in love with, but somehow he just never managed to come to life in my head. So just imagine how excited I was to find that not only was the guy who brought Tony Stark to life going to play Holmes but that the movie was being directed by Guy Ritchie, the guy who gave us Snatch. Ah, but only if he had written it too. From what I've heard, enough people contributed to the script to populate a small country, which might explain why the movie dragged on a fair bit. There weren't any parts I remember as being exceptionally boring, but I couldn't help thinking, Is this movie ever going to end? I think they just tried for too much in what should have been a simple action film. Overall, I'd say it was highly enjoyable with an excellent performance by Downey and definitely worth watching unless you are a literary purist and hate the thought of an action-hero version of Holmes.

This was a fantastic, enjoyable journey alongside two of the bestest friends in literary history. It is very funny, very exciting, and very enjoyable. I can go on four hours about how great is is, but just go watch it!!!! In defense of the movie against critics: Naturally, this remake of Sherlock Holmes is an interpretation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories. However, as a devotee of the books, I firmly believe that the classic "Sherlock Holmes" of the stage and screen who wears a deerstalker and says "elementary, dear Watson" is as much if not more of a interpretation. And this is how it should be. What works on the page doesn't work on the screen, and therefore it has to be reinterpreted. Additionally, Doyle's conceit that Watson wrote the stories (besides the one written by Holmes) provides the perfect method to rationalize any difference between the original and the new stories; the differences can be attributed to Watson's differing opinions on what information the reader needs, his own interpretation of events, and even his decisions on what is not any of the reader's business to know.

Those who read and adored the stories writen by Doyle will see nothing but perfect imagry and similarities between the Sherlock on paper, and the Sherlock in this film. I've seen a lot of Sherlock Holmes movies, and this does the best job of capturing Holmes' inane psychosis, his need for a case, and his perpetual relationship with Watson. Before seeing this, I was worried it would turn Holmes into an action movie, complete with overdone explosions, idiot female leads, and cliche lines. Imagine my delight when I saw the film in theatres, a living, breathing representation of the Holmes I know and love from literature. And, as far as movies go, it is impressive. The fight scenes are marvelous, the humour and writing are unforgetable. A mindblowing score doesn't hurt anything, either! Perfect for those just entering the world of Sherlock Holmes, or for the old veteran lovers of Sir Doyle's stories. Robert Downy Jr is an outstanding Holmes, and Jude Law is his perfect partner. I could do without Rachel McAdams, though. Her acting "skills" always fail to impress, and I was dissapointed to see her in a film worthy of much more talented actors. Also, lovers of House and Holmes - did you know Hugh Laurie's character is based on Holmes himself?

I am a Sherlock Holmes fan and was delighted when I heard there was going to be a new Sherlock movie. I don't think there has been a good Sherlock since Basil Rathbone. That has been a very long time and those are in black and white. I was not sure about Robert Downey Jr as Holmes but, he was a very good Holmes. I was used to Watson being slow and Dowdy but, Jude Law made a wonderful Watson. The plot was original and it contained a lot of fast paced action. The movie utilized Holmes' wonderful use of disguise. The movie also depicted that wonderful Holmes' humor. The filming and effects were great. I look forward to Robert Downey Jr bringing another Holmes case to life.
