One word. Awesome.
This ranks up there with Star Trek for me this year. Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes is a great movie to cap 2009. It’s classic Guy Ritchie through and through. Robert Downey Jr. makes for a great Sherlock Holmes and so does Jude Law in his role as the good Dr. Watson. I really love the slow-mo scenes especially when Holmes makes a tactical analysis on beating down opponents. Pure genius.
The plot & story is great so you don’t have to worry about having your thinking cap on for this one. Rachel McAdams is quite the seductress too. Mark Strong is a great villain and I’m sure you’d walk away with Lord Blackwood and his sinister machinations on your mind long after leaving the darkened cinema.
I give Sherlock Holmes an elementary 5 out of 5!
