Thoroughly entertaining, smart, action packed, clever, and a lot of fun. Way better than I expected. It felt a lot like the kind of fun the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie was. (Although I'd say Holmes is a notch below Pirates 1. Keira Knightley > Rachel McAdams comparatively.)

With Sherlock Holmes between Iron Man movies, Robert Downey, Jr. is on the roll of his life. He's always been a great actor, but I don't think there's a more outright entertaining leading man in Hollywood today than Robert Downey, Jr.

My review with some spoilers. http://www.backofthehead.com/​​​2009/​​​12/​​​sherlock-​​​holmes.html

I had no inclination to watch this movie at all, and was dragged to it by my fiance'. I had to thank her when we left, it was so much better, clever and more entertaining than I had ever thought it would be.

Jude Law is so BRITISH in his role. He's what I think of when I think "stuffy Brit" and he was just great in this.

Yeah, that thought occurred to me as well. Mainly, I thought the movie was fun, but it was so obviously the first act of a larger story that I was kinda unsatisfied at the end. I figure I'll probably like it more in a couple years after I've had a chance to see how the stuff with Moriarty plays out. By the way, does anyone know if/how many sequels have been greenlit already?

Sherlock Holmes 2 is happening, that much I know. Whether it will be an adaptation of any of the books or an original Holmes vs. Moriarty story, that I don't know. I'm definitely game for more Holmes.

I saw yesterday and I enjoyed it. Downey and Law did a great job in their roles and I liked how they had Holmes' inner monologue. Sets up great for a sequel and I do hope we get a Holmes' story like the Hound of Baskerville as the backdrop or subplot to the main Holmes vs. Moriarty.

I can't remember where, but I saw an interview with RDJ saying he'd be content alternating between the roles of Sherlock Holmes and Tony Stark for the rest of his days. If only...

I don't know much about Michelle Rodriguez as a person, but I loved her character. I will miss the tough, constantly pissed-off, yet truly scared and depressed woman.
