Brains aren't inherited

A real story ofc but here narrated by DR. Watson.. Sherlock Holmes is a book about this really cleaver detective who solves exceptional crime/murder cases using his undoubtedly clear and wise nature....It's really fun to read and a really great movie too..!! :D

Most memorable part is RDJ's accent

Yeah, I liked it. It was weird to hear RDJ with a deep British accent yet Tony Stark-esque facial expressions, and the ending was a bit too Sherlock-Holmes-Cliche for me, but I liked it. It was fun to watch. Although, if you're one of the people who likes to piece stuff together along with the characters, I wouldn't recommend this. Don't take it too seriously: it's good fun but nothing really talented or intricate. Also, the cult stuff is a bit too creepy for little kids, although I think a mature 12 year-old could easily handle it.

Dark reboot of classic mystery adventures has grisly action.

Sherlock Holmes is a 2009 mystery action movie directed by Guy Richie and starring Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Mark Strong, Rachel McAdams, Kelly Reilly, Eddie Marsan, and Hans Matheson. Language(1/5): One use of "bugger", "arse", "damn", "hell", and "bastard". Sex(3/5): Sherlock is handcuffed to his bed nude with pillows covering his private parts, and a woman is disgusted after she assumes sexual intent. A woman undresses and her nude back is seen but nothing else. Flirty banter and kisses. A brief innuendo. Drinking, Drugs, And Smoking(2/5): Pipe smoking and infrequent beer drinking. Violence(4/5): Graphic, brutal fistfights throughout with focus on tons of painful things such as broken bones and spitting blood, including guns being fired. A dead body with maggots is seen. One long extended fight between Sherlock and Dredger results in a ship in construction falling into the sea and destroying a building. A man is lit on fire, and another is drowned quite brutally. An explosion occurs at a slaughterhouse filled with dead animals, and Holmes and Watson's injuries are later seen. Blackwood's hanging in the beginning was false, and we then see him hanged at a dock by accident, his corpse is seen hanging. Positive Messages(2/5): Messages about creativity, being aware of your surroundings, courage, and friendship. Positive Role Models And Representations(2/5): Greed is balanced by Holmes' good nature, despite him having a questionable attitude towards many thing. Quality(opinionated): A good reboot of the stories, with good action and a very engaging story. I personally preferred the sequel. (My rating) PG-13 For intense sequences of violent action including intense images and brief suggestive material.

¡GOOD MYSTERY AND FULL OF ACTION!

The movie is very good, plus the mystery is also incredible. Violence: 5.7/10 The film is not very violent and the blood does not appear much, but if there are some bullets and a person is sentenced to death and hanged, in a scene a bomb explodes and they hurt someone (but they do not die), there are fist fights. Language: 1.5 / 10 There is practically no language, one that another damn it but nothing else. Sex: 4.5 / 10 There is no sex scene, but a naked person appears, but they do not show any sensitive part, a woman undresses but only her back is shown. Drugs, alcohol, smoking: 3/10 Sherlock smokes, people sometimes drink, drugs don't appear CONCLUSION: Sherlock Holmes is a very good movie, with some violence and a very good mystery

Dark and slightly boring, lots of pretty dumb humor

This is a pretty good movie me and my brother were super excited to watch this movie and we had high expectations that the movie would be out of this world (because we love spy movies such as Mission Impossible and James Bond) but it didn’t meet our expectations. It had plenty of violence (but not crazy amounts of gun shooting) a few scenes went crazy with the violence sword and gun fights. In those scenes some blood was shown. The whole movie was really dark! The criminal dealt with magic and tortured people! There was also a few sex scenes and a few scenes had brief partial nudity! Common Sense missed the word t-t for language! There was also one use of da-n, and one use of hell. Not that bad but I would put 2 or 3 out of 5. There was also some drinking. My MPAA rating for this movie is PG-13 for sequences of action violence, brief partial nudity, drinking, and some language.

Great Fun

This version of Sherlock, played out as though it where a superhero movie, pared with an intelligent plot and great comedic moments is great fun for tweens and and adults alike, although there are a few things I would be aware of: the amount sexual content is kept very low, Sherlock is very briefly seen handcuffed naked to a bed, but his crotch is covered and the scene is played for comedic affect, other than that there is some minor flirting and kissing, a women undresses (her back is briefly shown.) The violence in this film is what you should be more weary of, bloody hand to hand action scenes are played in slow motion with detail to every injury and guns, knives, tazers and poisens are used. Characters are shown dead in coffins with maggots, burning alive, and hanging from a noose, all of which instances are shown for a decent period of time. A mans body melts into his bathtub water, although the scene lasts, little is shown. Frogs are shown briefly with their chests melted open due to a chemical reaction and one scene takes place in a slaughter house (the carcasses and heads of pigs are shown which may be frightening to younger viewers.) A man is shown ‘possessed’ on the floor, moving violently and a young woman attempts to stab herself, a rats tail it removed. There is some drinking, Sherlock sometimes becomes drunk and characters smoke. Very minor bad language. Overall I think this film is great fun and I recommend it for ages 11+ (Although it could be higher or lower considering your child’s maturity and sensitivity to heavy violence.)
