Sherlock Holmes

Rated PG-13 134 min. 2009



While Guy Ritchie's frenzied filmmaking style is strictly mod, his Holmes—portrayed ably and energetically by Robert Downey Jr.—is informed by Arthur Conan Doyle's intellectually complex, personally flawed literary incarnation. You can almost smell the muck in Ritchie's rendering of 19th-century London, although his editing and pacing are choppy in the best of times. And, when Holmes begins deciphering spells and maps to predict where the villain will strike next, the script takes an turn toward a Victorian-era version of The Da Vinci Code.
