What Ritchie and Downey do is embroider and magnify the traits Conan Doyle had already given the characters.

"The most pleasant surprise I've had at the movies since Star Trek."

Ritchie mounts some impressively exciting action sequences, then bathes everything in dingy browns and grays to achieve an unappealing Victorian griminess.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Más que un relato detectivesco (la trama "policial" es lo menos convincente e interesante de la película) se trata de una entretenidísima comedia en la que Sherlock Holmes y John Watson son algo así como Starsky y Hutch en el Londres victoriano.

A stylish, frisky film that sets up the franchise deftly

A re-thinking of the Sherlock Holmes character works for the most part thanks to Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law. The game is definitely afoot. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Swashbuckling smarts and Downey, Jr. as the perfect super-sleuth.

...a sporadically amusing yet thoroughly tedious misfire of nigh disastrous proportions.

Hollywoody-ish-ist Sherlock ever. Downey Jr. and Law are magical though...

Guy Ritchie's film arrives with the bristling, cocksure, indefatigable force of a movie preordained as a franchise-in-waiting. This is pop Hollywood filmmaking, but not something anyone should feel the need to think about, or see more than once.

Fortunately, the film doesn't need to rely on its supporting cast too much, because its two leads are absolutely fantastic in their respective roles.

The film called "Sherlock Holmes" that has been raking in the money at the box office this Christmas season does not really exist at all. It's an illusion. A Jedi Mind Trick.

Despite a few laggard moments of slow going, Ritchie has pulled off an entertaining coup in giving us a Holmes for the 21st century by digging back to the 19th century original and adding a few bells and whistles.

With his reckless attitude, Downey Jr may not be the refined Sherlock Holmes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's conjuring, but this feisty reimagining is strikingly impressive and cements Downey's standing as one of the best actors in Hollywood.

Já era hora do ocupante da Baker Street 221B voltar a dar as caras nas telonas a fim de ser apresentado a uma nova geração -- algo que o cineasta Guy Ritchie faz de maneira divertida e relativamente eficiente.

Elementary, my dear -- as in, that's what Ritchie's spirited but superficial version of Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic detective ends up being.

... Sherlock Holmes for the ADD generation, jerking and twitching like a crank freak itching for his next sniff.

Guy Ritchie hit the big time with this flick but there is too much of the gangs of London and too little of the rumpled professor in the character of the famous detective.
