Robert Downey Jr. portrays an interestingly eccentric Sherlock Holmes in a way which is more true to the original literary version than most other popular depictions of the detective. The movie itself is a puzzling, action-packed adventure with interesting twists that never takes the awful Brothers Grimm-sort of turn wich I was deathly afraid it would. I say that this is one of the few series-setter-upper movies that I'm excited to see more of.
