Sherlock Holmes (Action 2009)

For an action flick this movie was actually not too bad. Robert Downey Jr. is one of those actors who will always be a badass, just like Johnny Depp. I would totally put them in the same category.

The film is not what you would expect of a detective/mystery type of background because of the fact that Holmes is portrayed as both a fighter and as a nutty intelligent character. You rarely find that type of a mix.

Jude Law was a pretty good Watson, but Rachel McAdams' character was totally pointless. I guess some writer decided that yeah...might as well have a girl in it. The rest of the plot was decent and had its share of twists and turns.
Rating - B
