Synopsis: The game is afoot – and astounding! Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law put memorable imprints on the roles of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in a bold reimagining that makes the famed sleuth a daring man of action as well as a peerless man of intellect. Guy Ritchie directs this dazzling adventure.
Though Guy Ritchie (SNATCH) is best known for directing modern crime films set in England, he turns back the clock more than a century for this mystery inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's classic characters. SHERLOCK HOLMES is based on a comic book by Lionel Wigram, and stars IRON MAN's Robert Downey Jr. as the titular detective. Jude Law (COLD MOUNTAIN) stars as Watson, while Rachel McAdams (THE NOTEBOOK) plays Holmes's rival Irene Adler.
"Downey plays him like a brilliant scoundrel, a brawler and braniac and all-around daredevil." 10/09/2009
