Default Sherlock Holmes Review

Another surprise, i had serious doubts about this movie, an american playing holmes??? guy ritchie directing ???? jude law as watson???

But it was fabulous !! great story line, brilliant sets and special effect,serious chemistry between downy jr and law and one of the funniest films i have seen.
I can see quite a few of this being made if the USA audience can get over its not set in America.

HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON

I thought it was brilliant. Robert Downey Junior played Holmes perfectly. I also liked the banter between Holmes and Watson, it was perfect.

Blackadder: They do say, Mrs M, that verbal insults hurt more than physical pain. They are, of course, wrong, as you will soon discover when I stick this toasting fork into your head.

Ryuzaki, you must just be too slow to follow

I kid, and I personally thought the film was amazing, a brilliant surprise.

I think the writer has definitely been watching some Death Note. Holmes appears VERY 'L' like in this, you should have gotten that Ryu

I loved it, I thought it was great, and it had a much thicker plot than Avatar!

That's what I thought too. Holmes seemed to me like a mix between L from death note and Patrick Jane from the mentalist. Best, combo, ever...

With downey's recent performances i was expecting this to be pretty good, and wasn't dissapointed.

The plot was very engaging, though i found it a little stumbling at times. The adler story arch in particular was very hamfisted.

Downey was on incredible form thoughout, and his chemistry with Law was phenomenal. I could definetly watch a few more hours of this.
