'Sherlock Holmes' Movie ReviewsThe first reviews are in for Guy Ritchie's'Sherlock Holmes' (which doesn't hit theaters until Christmas Day -- or, if you're in the U.K., Boxing Day), and critics agree that Robert Downey, Jr. makes for a dashing Victorian sleuth ... although Sir Aurthur Conan Doyle would be hard-pressed to recognize his most famous creation. "He turns the venerable deerstalker-capped and becaped figure into a gym-toned, half-deranged Holmes unlike any seen before," Variety says, adding, "Distractingly, for the time period, he sports a wild-haired, stubbled look that makes him resemble Al Pacino's kid brother." Another British paper compares this mussy-haired, fight-clubbing Holmes to "a rock-and-roll roué resembling a young Keith Richards."
