    Anyone else seen it?

    Spoiler free review:

    I just got back and I have to say that I liked it a lot. One of my favorite things about it was the action and suspense. I never felt bored with it at all; there was always something interesting happening. Downey might have been one of the best actors to choose for the part of Sherlock. There were a few witty remarks throughout and they didn't feel out of place at all. Some special effects were involved but it was a relatively appropriate amount for the movie. The last 30 minutes was the best part. Everything came together and all unsolved questions were answered. I really felt that the Sherlock character resembled more of a 19th century ninja rather than a detective. If you are deciding whether or not to see this movie, just go for it. It was overall highly enjoyable throughout for me. That being said I would rate this an 8.5/10. It had a decent plot, great acting and everything came out to be an excellent action adventure movie. Also, the very last minute of the movie opens up for a sequel. Can't wait for that!

    Seeing as you haven't seen it yet, I'll avoid plot details and try to keep it vague.

    I enjoyed it. It was visually appealing and had enough mystery and who-done-it-ness to keep me interested all the way through. That said, fans of the classic Holmes may not enjoy it quite as much as it is definitely a more Americanized version.

    Overall: 8/10.

    I loved it. One of those 'it all comes together in the end' films. Definitely recommend.

    ^I disagree but the movie was great. I think the cast was perfect as well.

    Yeah, I liked it. Wasn't a perfect movie, but I wasn't bored at all.

    I liked how they took the shy, quiet classic version of Sherlock Holmes and turned him into a fun-to-watch, funny, entertaining detective. I absolutely love the fight scenes.

    I really want to see this movie, and the Lovely Bones.
