Sherlock Holmes

Genre: Action/Mystery/Suspense
Director: Guy Ritchie
Main Actors: Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Rachel McAdams
Rating: PG-13 (Watch it with your parents? Sure, I did! Nothing overly embarassing in this.)
Length: 128 Minutes

IMDb Synopsis:
After finally catching serial killer and occult "sorcerer" Lord Blackwood, legendary sleuth Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson can close yet another successful case. But when Blackwood mysteriously returns from the grave and resumes his killing spree, Holmes must take up the hunt once again. Contending with his partner's new fiancée and the dimwitted head of Scotland Yard, the dauntless detective must unravel the clues that will lead him into a twisted web of murder, deceit, and black magic - and the deadly embrace of temptress Irene Adler.

   Once again we are starting by saying Robert Downey Jr, yum!!! 45 years old and still looks amazing :) As always he has his quick wit, hilarious comments, and sarcasm that leave us rolling on the floor. Rachel McAdams was very good in this, and even though she was practically the only actor  who didn't have a british accent, you hardly noticed.

   Costumes were gorgeous, perfect for the era, hair was nicely done as well. The action scenes were cool, for the first 2 minutes. Sometimes it seemed as though they dragged on forever, which drives me absolutely crazy. The scenery, especially the bridge scene, was so well done! The fights, the scenes with Irene Adler, and how Holmes sums everything up in the end = amazing. We give this movie an 85%
