Movie Review: " Sherlock Holmes"
Brady and I were excited for Sherlock Holmes to come out on Christmas day. We planned on going on Christmas, but ended up going on Dec. 26th.
I love Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law... They are darn cute. I love Robert Downey Jr.'s acting style, the fun and character he brings to the roles he plays. I think he is a great actor. (I loved Iron Man).
There is a lot of action, mystery and intrigue in the movie.
However, I didn't care for it. I guess I don't like mysteries or movies that drag out. Sherlock Holmes story isn't something I enjoy. I was lost through the movie... I wanted them to get on with the story line and solving the crime. I didn't think it was very upbeat... in fact I thought Sherlock was sullen, deep thinking, not an entertaining or had an up beat life.
Everyone around me loved it. It's not something I would see again.
I have to be entertained with a great story - not just action. I love Robert and Jude - but they couldn't even make me like the story. Sorry - bad review. 1/2 star out of 5...
You may like it - I just didn't.
