    Anyone else see it? Wasn't very impressed. Some good visuals and interestingly shot action sequences, but I was actually kind of bored.

    I liked it, but I am a bit of a Guy Ritchie fan.

    I am still trying to sneak in Hugo, and the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo before my vacation ends.

    It definitely had the Guy Ritchie style. I thunk he did fine directing it, it was just not a very gripping plot. Also, very little mystery for a Sherlock Holmes story.

    Robert Downey, Jr. is so good he can save what was (and you are right) not a great script. For the life of me I can't figure out the gypsy storyline. Still, I liked it overall. Oh, and I also saw Tree of Life the night before, and once you see that, all movies seem superior by comparison.

    kpt- did you like the first one? (I'm assuming we're talking about the second one here). I thought the first one was pretty good.

    Been awhile, but I thought the first one was better.

    Saw it, didn't like the constant stop action, especially when they were running in the woods.

    I'd have liked to see the same cast as these movies but with less "action flick" plot writing. Go back to the core of what Sherlocke Holmes is supposed to be.

    Agreed.

    I was skeptical when my friend told me it was better than the first, but it honestly was.
