!!! Seen it in January 2010 !!!
Detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner Watson engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England. [imdb]
Nominated for 2 Oscars:
Best Original Score
Best Art Direction
This movie is very enjoyable if you don't look too much into the plot. It's not a murder mystery like many would've expected. It's the journey that counts, not the mystery solving. So if you have no grand expectations, Sherlock is a fun experience, mostly due to the charisma of the two leading men.
Robert Downey Jr. gives a surprising wonderful performance (surprising because in such genre you don't always have to bother) and Jude Law is very effective in a charming supporting role. The direction is fine for an action flick, but the supporting characters (and performances) are boring and ignorable. I don't remember much of the Original Score, but the Art Direction looks dead-on for that certain era and it deserves an Oscar win.
My rating for the film: 7/10. The men make it worthy.
