    I didn't see a thread for it, so advanced apologies if late.


    Just saw it with the family, and the line was out the door once we were leaving. I thought it was great, good action/fight scenes, a lot of funny dialogue,Downey did a fantastic job as Holmes and Rachel McAdams was looking good as well.

    You could definitely see a lot of Guy Ritchie's style in the film, I think he handled his first big budget blockbuster very well.

    I was thinking of checking it out a little later, though I hate opening day crowds and today there's really nothing to do, but go to the movies so I'mthinking maybe tomorrow instead. Good to know it's a decent movie

    Aside from the horrible reviews? And the fact that Robert Downey Jr. will be a womanizing and irrational Sherlock Holmes; when someone who was a fan of thebooks (myself) knows that is the EXACT opposite of what Sherlock Holmes is.

    I still need to see Avatar before I see anything else in the theaters. Can't wait to catch it though.

    The reviews were hardly horrible, around 68% on Rotten Tomatoes, worse for Metacritic I think around 55.

    I never read the books so I'll trust that you know the literary character better than I, but in the film Downey was not womanizing whatsoever. Most of hisactions and thoughts seemed to be based on logic and reason as well, so I don't know where you're assuming he would be irrational.

    The story was over the top and quite forced, but Downey did a great job.

    I didn't really like it. Couldn't understand Downey some of the time, plus I thought the storyline was forced (as mentioned earlier). Being that Iwasn't an avid reader of SH, I felt like they just threw you into the plot without explaining who most people were.

    I didn't hate it...just glad I caught the matinee for $4.

    I can't really feel it after watching the previews. Def not how the books portray Holmes, he was more serious if anything. The slap-stick comedy won'tdo it for me in this instance

    I liked the movie for the most part, but I hated how they blatantly set it up for a sequel.

    ^It's a personal pet peeve kind of thing. I never said it ruined the movie, because I liked the movie, It just really annoyed me.
