"There's a mystery at the heart of Sherlock Holmes, and it's not the one the great master of detection has been called on to solve. It's how a film that has so many good things going for it has turned out to be solid but not spectacular." - Los Angeles Times (Photo Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures)

(L-R) Jude Law as Dr. Watson and Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes in Warner Bros. Pictures' and Village Roadshow Pictures' action/adventure mystery Sherlock Holmes. "Challenged by Downey's energy, Jude Law, who often seems aimless in his movies, comes fully up to speed. He's virile and quick-witted, and his Watson, if not Holmes's equal in brainpower, comes close to him in daring. Their repartee evokes the banter of lovers in a screwball comedy; they flirt outrageously but chastely." - The New Yorker (Photo Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures)

"The movie as a whole is clever, and conspicuously overwrought. But Mr. Downey's performance is elegantly wrought; he's as quick-witted as his legendary character, and blithely funny in the lovers' spats—all right, the mystery-lovers' spats—that Holmes keeps having with Jude Law's witty Dr. Watson." - Wall Street Journal (Photo Credit: Warner Bros.

Jude Law as Dr. John Watson in Sherlock Holmes. "Here's hoping that younger members of the audience will seek out Conan Doyle's original stories to further explore Holmes' official amanuensis, Dr. John Watson, whose brilliant case studies regarding his friend, roommate, and fellow rationalist are the stuff dreams are made of." - Austin Chronicle(Photo Credit: Warner Bros.

Mark Strong (hooded) as Lord Blackwood in Warner Bros. Pictures' and Village Roadshow Pictures' action-adventure mystery Sherlock Holmes. "The result is only half as hip as hoped. Yes, this Holmes is leaner and meaner, and Watson (Jude Law) is nearly his equal. But there's still something fussy about the result, as if bobbies had broken up the party at 11:59." - St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Photo Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures)

Kelly Reilly as Mary Morstan and Jude Law as Dr. John Watson in the movie Sherlock Holmes. "The reason Sherlock Holmes fails at least as often as it succeeds is because more effort and attention was lavished upon the concept than upon the script. Given a worthy story, Downey's Holmes might have been memorable. Here, he's an interesting character in search of a worthwhile story." - ReelViews (Photo Credit: Warner Bros. Pictures)

Jude Law as Dr. John Watson in the movie Sherlock Holmes. "By now we've seen so many good, bad, and indifferent Sherlocks that it's almost a relief to get something different, however wrongheaded.

"Despite some arresting visual flourishes and Downey's inherent likeability, it's nearly incoherent both as cinema and as story. No, this isn't your grandfather's or your father's Sherlock Holmes, but if theirs featured Basil Rathbone or Jeremy Brett in the lead, it was better by miles." - Portland Oregonian (Photo Credit: Warner Bros.
