Robert Downey Jr. continues his incredible comeback to the film industry by bringing the title role to life in Sherlock Holmes, which was released on Friday in theaters nationwide.  I really wasn’t sure if it was a good idea since the storyline and character is a little dated, it didn’t seem like a good “Christmas day movie” and I thought it might look stupid.

Fortunately, as time went on, the trailers got better and soon it became apparent that it probably wasn’t going to suck.  While the reviews are not stellar, they aren’t bad either, with sites like Rotten Tomatoes giving it a rating of 69% Fresh.

Downey has Jude Law in the role of his sidekick, Watson, and Rachel McAdams seems to provide a little more action than Holmes anticipated.  In the meantime, the super sleuth has got to figure out a deadly plot that could destroy the country before it’s too late.

    I can’t wait to see this movie, there were many versions of Sherlock Holmes movie before, I’m just curious whether this version will be better rather than the old versions or not.

    This show is better than I have anticipated. =)
    Thought that there might a lot of talking, but instead, they let the action do the talking. Not surprisingly, it’s a smart show and both Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law did a great job in bringing the characters out in my opinion.
