Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective re-imagined as an action-adventure hero. There's much to like – and it's great escapism for a couple of hours – but the movie ultimately feels a bit hollow and superficial. #

sherlockHolmesThis movie is a curious beast. There’s much to like: It’s beautiful, a gorgeous and gritty recreation of London of the late 1800s. The script is clever. It’s got plenty of action. It’s got Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes, and the script retains enough of the character and qualities of the Sherlock Holmes stories to satisfy the casual fan of the legendary detective. #
