Movie Review - Sherlock Holmes

I was eager to catch this flick!
Robert Downey Jr. chews up scenery left and right. Not to be outdone, Jude Law offers numerous funny tidbits as well. It's not an extreme love-hate relationship between Holmes and Watson, but they do know how to banter and poke fun at one another. Neither is perfect - each has hangups. And it's these two characters who make the film memorable.
I won't give away too much, but there's witchcraft going down in London, a criminal back from the dead, and a plot to change the course of history. Sounds like a job for Sherlock Holmes!
Guy Ritchie is an odd director, but his style fits well here. There's something for everyone in this film!
Hmm, do I sense a sequel coming soon??
And as a bonus, the previews were pretty good, too. Clash of the Titans looks amazing!

It's one I've got on my list to see. But...I'm a real Holmes nerd. Wonder if I'll be disappointed it's not truer to the stories?
