Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The last time we saw British detective Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson on the big screen was in 1985 in Barry Levinson's Young Sherlock Holmes. Now director Guy Ritchie and producer Joel Silver have brought him back again. But how is the new movie? How are Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law together and Holmes and Watson? Is it entertaining to watch or is it all style and no substance? How is Mark Strong as the villain Lord Blackwood? Is it a classic Holmes story? If you've seen it, then sound off, leave a comment, and let us know what you thought of Sherlock Holmes!
To fuel the fire, Sherlock Holmes is a fantastic movie. I've seen it twice and I loved it even more the second time. It's a considerably darker movie with a lot more intensity than I was expecting, but that's exactly what I wanted from a Guy Ritchie directed Sherlock Holmes adventure, so no complaints. I had a blast watching it and I was impressed with all of the performances and the story and the great visuals and everything. Hans Zimmer also used a badass bass sound whenever Lord Blackwood showed up that brought a smile to my face whenever I heard it. And just like Star Trek, I'm already excited to see the sequel (with Professor Moriarty).
What did you think of Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes? Was it entertaining or only mediocre?
