Storyline Heading
Revealing fighting skills as powerful as his famous intellect, Holmes employs his own unique methods to get to the heart of a case, traveling where no one else would think to go to find what others cannot see. Watson, Holmes’s longtime colleague, is joining him in what may be their last case before the doctor starts a new life as a married man. Irene Adler, a woman from America, is as alluring as she is dangerous, and whose tempestuous relationship with the detective has become the one puzzle he cannot solve.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Mystery - This is not like most film versions of the Victorian era private detective, as this Holmes is as much a man of action as he is of brains; as such, some purists may be a little taken aback by the modern style here. That said, this adventure with humor is aimed primarily at a young adult male demographic. Fans of Robert Downey Jr. should be very pleased, but fans of director Guy Ritchie's edgier films may be somewhat disappointed. Some violence and scary moments make the film too intense for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Sherlock Holmes concludes without a satisfying ending. Despite an overly generous running time of 130 minutes, the movie fails to wrap up a significant secondary plot thread.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good They will be unaware that this "Sherlock Holmes" is cheerfully revisionist. They will be entertained, and so was I. The great detective, who has survived so much, can certainly shrug off a few special effects.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average While this incarnation has visual flair and attitude, it is too modern, and it blithely jettisons Holmes' wit and wisdom.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 169 moviegoers:
OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, LOVED "SHERLOCK HOLMES." With over half rating it "Excellent" or "Fantastic" and only a very small percentage rating it somewhat low, "Sherlock Holmes" is a MUST SEE!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Sherlock Holmes has made his reputation finding the truth at the heart of the most complex mysteries. With the aid of Dr. John Watson, his trusted ally, the renowned "consulting detective” is unequaled in his pursuit of criminals of every stripe, whether relying on his singular powers of observation, his remarkable deductive skills, or the blunt force of his fists.

But now a storm is gathering over London, a threat unlike anything that Holmes has ever confronted…and just the challenge he's looking for.

After a string of brutal, ritualistic murders, Holmes and Watson arrive just in time to save the latest victim and uncover the killer: the unrepentant Lord Blackwood. As he approaches his scheduled hanging, Blackwood—who has terrorized inmates and jailers alike with his seeming connection to dark and powerful forces—warns Holmes that death has no power over him and, in fact, his execution plays right into Blackwood's plans.

And when, by all indications, Blackwood makes good on his promise, his apparent resurrection panics London and confounds Scotland Yard. But to Holmes, the game is afoot.

Racing to stop Blackwood's deadly plot, Holmes and Watson plunge into a world of the dark arts and startling new technologies, where logic is sometimes the best crimefighting weapon…but where a good right hook will often do the job.
