Sherlock Holmes


Did anybody else know what Guy Richie's job was before this movie came out? The only time we'd ever heard his name was when he'd be mentioned as Madonna's husband. So we just figured he didn't do anything. Except maybe sit around reading old mysticism books, or play cricket in the yard by himself. Or something. But he can make a good movie!

Robert Downey, Jr. is Sherlock Holmes, and you never doubt him. His chemistry with his friend and partner, Dr. Watson is just right. And Rachel McAdams brings her big smile and colorful dresses to brighten up an otherwise gray and cloudy picture. It's a lot of fun to watch. And surely there will be a sequel; Holmes' final line of the movie is, "Case re-opened!", and then the credits roll.

B+
