Brief Synopsis: Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr) and Dr Watson (Jude Law) use their wits and wiles to stop a deluded black magic practitioner from taking over the world.
Good Points: All acting performances are top-notch (yes, even Jude Law’s) and the directorialship of Guy Ritchie is stylish and luscious to watch.
Bad Points: Holmes purists might object because they always do, don’t they?
Good For: A good old romp with thrills, spills and comedy. Plus Downey Jr is rather dishy.
