Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Eccentric consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson battle to bring down a new nemesis and unravel a deadly plot that could destroy England.


I really love this movie. I think Robert Downey is an amazing Sherlock - brilliant, obsessed, inconsiderate, funny… and very amusing. Jude Law and Mark Strong were great in their roles as well. The story was interesting, the visual style was quite special and appealing and I loved things like the slow motion scenes in Sherlock's mind when he anticipates how things will happen.

Lots of humor and action, great actors, good story. Very entertaining!

One of my favourite actors in one of my favourite era's… yes please.
The film was brilliant, was thoroughly entertained all the way through.

If you can get over the idea of Sherlock Holmes as an action hero – and if, indeed, you want to – then there is something to enjoy about this flagrant makeover of fiction's first modern detective into a man of brawn as much as brain. To say that this is not grandpapa's Sherlock Holmes will be either irrelevant or a plus for most of the intended audience, who know the iconic Victorian/Edwardian-era sleuth by reputation if at all. A good number of Robert Downey Jr.'s "Iron Man" fans will likely follow him here, as he turns the venerable deerstalker-capped and becaped figure into a gym-toned, half-deranged Holmes unlike any seen before. Worldwide prospects look potent.
