Critic 1A very clever but dark movie. I guess that the darkness in the movie is hiding lack of expensive props or something. Robert gives the old chap some new edge without teasing the poor Dr. Watson too much. If you like witty dialog and complicated plots this is for you. Try not to outwit your date during the rest of the evening. You will fail... For sure.
Critic 2Very nice steampunk movie. In this movie Dr. Watson is not some old stupid man who is praising Holmes, but more equal with him. Themes from Doyle's short strories can be recognized dressed in different clothes. Downey, Law and many others are excellent in their roles.
|Judgement Star: The Critic 2 has some soft spots for R. Downey Jr.|
