We gave it a B-

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary sleuth is reborn as an action hero in Guy Ritchie’s slick, stylish franchise launching pad. Sherlock Holmes is loud and overplotted, but Downey is charismatically gonzo as the brainiac of Baker Street and Law is far better as the second banana, Watson, than he is as a Hollywood leading man. The lone EXTRA is a self-congratulatory making-of doc. B?
