Amazing movie. I love Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law, they work great together! I Love how they show Sherlock Holmes' train of thought throughout this movie, it was really well done!

The New York Times
There are worse things than loutish, laddish cool, and as a series of poses and stunts, Sherlock Holmes is intermittently diverting. Full Review

USA Today
Sherlock Holmes has been reimagined with fighting skills as potent as his intellectual acumen. Full Review
James Berardinelli
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. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
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.

The Onion (A.V. Club)
This is very much a Sherlock Holmes movie for the blockbuster era. Full Review
