In addition to being a very entertaining film, Guy Ritchie's stylistic direction adds greatly to this interpretation of a literary classic, by visually demonstrating Holmes' thought process and rapid-fire analysis. The period setting comes alive on blu-ray, thanks to some gorgeous set design and wonderful CGI-enhanced backgrounds. As bonus materials go, the blu-ray contains a unique alternate viewing with the director intermittently hosting a split-screen presentation (the film on one side and various behind-the-scenes on the other), as well as various pic-in-pic commentary clips etc. (which are also available thru a separate menu), and character timelines. This is a very inventive presentation option (for those interested). Otherwise, Sherlock Holmes remains a very entertaining period film, which looks gorgeous on blu-ray.

Great story, wonderful photography/scenes/clothing/settings.
Fast and witty conversations between characters. Had to watch it
a couple of times to catch all the slow/speedy sequences.
Well cast and totally a great film. Hoping for more, as that's how it
leaves you at the end.

This is THE role for Robert Downey Jr. It is better than him as Iron Man, and better than most of his stuff in the 80's and 90's. This role has certainly not only rekindled my love for his acting, but also for my faith that he - like Holmes - could overcome addiction and behavioural issues to tackle a difficult role like this and do such a smashing job!
Watson is brilliant and so is the acting of the other characters. The direction, CGI, and dialogue are all spot on!

This movie discussed the concept of religion vs science. The bad guy is using people's superstition that he resurrected after life, and he has power beyond human realms. Of course, Sherlock Holmes proved with his wisdom and witty that the bad guy used science to fake his death, and the cult ritual was interesting to watch to.

This might not be the best thing to watch if you have a preconceived idea of Holmes and Watson from the books or the classic "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" (1939) with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. You do not want to besmirch the image.

Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) in this presentation is just as observant as usual but is better informed of different disciplines that the original. He uses wily disguises and beautiful women to accomplish his goal of detecting and foiling the cunning bad guys. This looks like the pilot for a series or at least the beginning of a film series.

Dr. Watson (Jude Law) is more of second Holms but a different set of bad habits. He saves Holmes' bacon several times. However, Watson wants to go his own way and settle down with his newfound love Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams.)

This looks like the pilot for a series or at least the beginning of a film series. Holmes is bantering with the insidious Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong) who has recently risen from the dead and is determined to create a new world order. Little does he know that they are all pawns in a larger scheme by "you know who." Oh, all right I will say it Professor Moriarty.

This looks like the pilot for a series or at least the beginning of a film series.

Keep watching as the final credits role by. It is nice to see that they tie the names of the character and the actors together with pictures of the characters. I cannot stand disembodies names scrolling by. The is a picture of a naked man, handcuffed to the bead and the caption "Costumes Designer Jenny Beavan"

Great movie, fun to watch. The quality was good, but I could not tell if the blu ray was the reason. However my Blu ray player had a bit problems read the disc at first. He didn't recognize it.

or perhaps it's just because I'm a Downey Jr. fan :-) regardless, these are well done and he makes for an entertaining Sherlock Holmes. The action is great and the characters are fun

Robert Downey is back with a venegence. It was a superb movie with lots of action and excellent characters. Jude law was good too but Downey really stole the show.

This is one of my favorites. I was thrilled to finally get it. I received it in perfect condition and in the time it was supposed to get to me. I'm truly happy.
