  • While I loved the acting, thoroughly enjoying the on-screen relationship of Holmes and Watson, and I really liked the special effects and scenery, I was disappointed in the story line
  • I found the plot of the dark occult quite distracting and a bit far-fetched
  • Rachel McAdams is always, in my opinion, just so-so, and this performance was no exception
  • And, although I don’t usually enjoy computer-generated scenes over the real thing, the scenes above the Thames, London Bridge and other landmarks were amazing and very realistic

      I had high expectations when I rented Sherlock Holmes on DVD the other day, mainly because of my high regard for Robert Downey Jr.’s amazing acting skills and his recent choice of movies to star in. I also like Guy Ritchie’s movies, so when we sat down to watch Sherlock Holmes I was expecting greatness. While I loved the acting, thoroughly

      computer-generated scenes over the real thing, the scenes above the Thames, London Bridge and other landmarks were amazing and very realistic. The fight scene far above the river near the end of the movie was excellent and very exciting to watch. The dialogue throughout the movie was clever, as all Guy Ritchie movies tend to be, especially between the two men.

      As far as the negatives, in my opinion, bringing the secret, dark, underground group associated with the occult didn’t seem to suit a movie about a detective set in old England just was distracting to me. However, that being said, it was not sufficiently distracting enough to make this movie mediocre-Sherlock Holmes is still an excellent film and well worth watching.
