As they're looking into the downing of a treasure ship -- supposedly by a massive squid -- Sherlock Holmes (Ben Syder) and Dr. Watson (Gareth David-Lloyd) get word that a dinosaur is running amok in London.

  • Sherlock Holmes goes wrong in many ways except for one -- at the boxoffice. show more

  • 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. show more

  • With a clamorous soundtrack and a whirl of elaborate chases and busily choreographed fight scenes, this is Sherlock Holmes with Attention Deficit Disorder. show more
