It was so stupid. The plot was immeasurably bland and predictable. Yes, visually it was absolutely stunning, but that can't possibly make up for the utter lack of true character development. In all honesty, half the characters were merely plot devices (The General, anyone?), and other than the visual stimulation, I got nothing from that but the same old movie I've seen a million times, other than the fact that things were shiner and I saw more blue. Lets go for some real plot development rather than the same old cookie-cutter plot that we've seen a million times, and lets try not to spend half a billion dollars on it too. (Half a billion...that is not even an exaggeration. It actually cost that much.)
Sherlock Holmes 9.5/10
Stayed relatively true to its literary counterpart. Exciting, Intellectually fueling, and fast paced. Didn't WOW me, but it was more than I had expected. Left itself open for a sequel, which was kinda cool. Acting was PHENOMENAL by Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. That really made the movie for me.
