  • Critic Reviews
    5 stars out of 5 -- "Easily one of the most enjoyable action pictures in recent memory....[An] alternately brisk and brainy reworking of the legendary detective's mythos..."
    Box Office

    "[Robert Downey Jr. brings] an energetic insouciance as well as a raffish air of bohemian disrepute to [the role]..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[T]he production design looks enticingly authentic....Old London, achieved via superb visual effects, is breathtaking in its grimy verisimilitude."
    USA Today

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Guy Ritchie's film is filled with sensational sights, over-the-top characters and a desperate struggle atop Tower Bridge....It's likely to be enjoyed by today's action fans."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "The visual style -- a smoky, greasy, steam-punk rendering of Victorian London, full of soot and guts and bad teeth and period clothes -- shows some undeniable flair."
    New York Times

    "[H]ighly entertaining....Directed with just the right amount of panache by Guy Ritchie, whose showmanship finally finds the right side of self-indulgence." -- Grade: B
    A.V. Club

    "The best thing in the movie is Downey....There's an authentic Sherlockian intensity about him." -- Grade: B-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[E]very frame has been crammed with visual stimulation thanks to Sarah Greenwood's detailed production design, Philippe Rousselot's gritty lensing and Jenny Beavan's determinedly creative costume design."

    "Philippe Rousselot's cinematography smoothly marries the various components, the great matte shots and CGI into a smart-looking film."
    Hollywood Reporter

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[F]rom its superb production design to Hans Zimmer's punchy, gypsy-violin score, Sherlock Holmes can unashamedly count itself one of the more robust members of the 2009 blockbuster club..."
    Total Film

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]irelessly energetic, hugely entertaining....It treads a judicious line between Hollywood-style heightened reality and out-and-out fantasyland..."
