Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It seems that an evil aristocrat, executed for a series of murders, returns from the dead to mobilize an ancient secret society that he may have time-traveled into a Dan Brown novel to learn about. Doesn't that sound fascinating? I thought not.
Fresh: Downey never winks -- hea(TM)s too much of a pro for that -- but like the man hea(TM)s playing, hea(TM)s much, much smarter than the movie hea(TM)s in.
Fresh: Though purists may balk at Arthur Conan Doyle's literary world being manhandled into a blockbuster by never-subtle director Guy Ritchie, Downey has a winning take on Holmes: He's always on.
Fresh: It's all knotted together, then unraveled with brio, by Holmes and Watson. There are fisticuffs galore, fiery combustion aplenty, and, yes, my dear reader, clever deduction.
Who else rented this thinking it was the Robert Downey, Jr. Sherlock Holmes?
NO!! ABSOLUTELY DO NOT TOUCH THIS!! HAZARDOUS!!!
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! This is NOT the movie you think it is.
I don't know how the name Sherlock Holmes got added to this movie, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle must be thrashing in his grave! Every scene is extended beyond even what Family Guy would consider ridiculous. (think Peter hurts his knee joke) Unfortunately, this film isn't even funny despite the fact that it should be considered a parody.
