Sherlock Holmes

Will post a full review within the next couple of days, but my immediate impression after seeing one of the year's most hotly anticipated movies is:

It was good... but it could have been even better. The storyline was pretty good, the internal logic didn't always hold up but it kept my interest. Hans Zimmer's music score was absolutely brilliant. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law were very good in their roles, Rachel McAdams was fine, Mark Strong didn't get as much ascreen time as I'd have liked - and frankly didn't make as good a bad guy here as I'd expected. Lots of action and some humour among the deductive reasonings, though it certainly had more scope for being funny.

Enjoyable, but maybe not quite as good as the hype made out it would be. Then again... when is the hype ever lived up to by reality?

If you like Robert Downey Jr., you'll definitely enjoy Sherlock Holmes.
