Sherlock Holmes (2009)
I love Robert Downey Jr. I love detective films. I love Sherlock Holmes. But this missed the mark just a bit. This movie stars Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes, everybody's favorite drug-addicted crazy genius detective. And, apperently, he's also super strong. I never read anything about that in the stories. It doesn't stay too close to the original stories, but stays enough for a good time. The case in the film really doesn't have a clear objective, and the film is very choppy. It's slow, but smart. That's all I can say. True Sherlock fans will like it, but other than them, I would say maybe only glance at it.
