"Detective Sherlock Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England."
"After finally catching serial killer and occult "sorcerer" Lord Blackwood, legendary sleuth Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson can close yet another successful case. But when Blackwood mysteriously returns from the grave and resumes his killing spree, Holmes must take up the hunt once again. Contending with his partner's new fiancée and the dimwitted head of Scotland Yard, the dauntless detective must unravel the clues that will lead him into a twisted web of murder, deceit, and black magic - and the deadly embrace of temptress Irene Adler."

I'm a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, so I'd been looking forward to getting to watch this movie. I have to say, I was disappointed. It wasn't that it was a bad movie as such, but I didn't feel it was as good as it could have been. An example of one of the issues I have with the movie is that I never would have thought that a gentleman like Sherlock Holmes would be involved in a bare chested boxing match in an actual ring, nor did I expect to see Dr. Watson punch Sherlock Holmes because of a simple disagreement between the two of them. In fact, I felt there was far too many times where punching and kicking came in to it. I suppose if you haven't read the stories, so haven't formed an opinion of Sherlock Holmes or Dr. Watson, then you could thoroughly enjoy the movie. But if you're familiar with the way Sherlock Holmes generally works, then you - like me - would probably not enjoy the movie as much.
