I love Sherlock Holmes! I've seen the movies, read the books, and watched the TV show on BBC!

This was a great movie, although I must say, I liked the second one better.  Your review, however, sounded too much like a comercial, not a review. It was more of a "Go watch this great movie!" Thing than to inform the reader about what you thought of the movie. Maybe this would have been better seen on TV...

Too much story and not enough opinion and analysis!  Sorry! :(

Although I do agree with some of your opinions, it does sound like you're trying to create a commercial for this movie.

This review does not seem to have a flow that, in my opinion, a rewiew  should have

I feel that this article coud have been more welll organized. I also feel that this article couldve been written in a more mature way rather than written to an immature audience.

This is not the best review I have ever read. It doesn't flow, it is rife with gramatical errors and it gives away the ending. None of the characters are explained well, the summary is lacking and it uses far too many exclamation points. Overall, this is a poorly written article.

I absolutely loved this movie. Your review was good. The mistake was that it seemed like you just copied from the paragraph on the back of the DVD case. Other than that, good review and awesome movie.

I absolutely loved this movie. It had my two favorite genres in one show(action & comedy). Unfortunately, the movie didn't have Sherlock Holme's original villian. I think it was Professor Mordiasse, but I really don't know. By the way, good review.

It was Professor Moriarty, and yes, he was in the movie. That's who Adler was working for, but he came into the second movie a lot more.

Sorry, but the 1st time I read this i didnt really get the gist of it because I was so busy picking up on fallacies in the grammar and sentence structure. The second time I read it, I found it very much a summarisation, not reallyexplaining the plot. It was more of part blurb you would find on the back of the DVD case and partly something you would find on advertising posters outside hmv or the cinema.

Too much summarization, I'm sorry to say. The movie was fantastic, though, even with some corny parts to it. Nevertheless, who can't help loving Holmes?

You didn't really review it did you? You just summarised the plot (fairly poorly) and used the old "If you love.........., then you should definitley go to see........ .

I really love the Sherlock Holmes books, and the movie really impressed me! They didn't use any of the actual plots of the books, but the characters were portrayed really well! I totally agree with this reveiw! Good job! :D

I actually went to the set of Sherlock Holmes.  I saw them film little bits of the scene on the bridge at the end.  THe movie was actually amazing.  Great review.  Very articulate and the point is made.

For those who are sherlock fans it is clear that a true effort was made to capture the sherlock-ness of the character. And they did quite well, all lose ends where tied up and esplained. I thought it was rather wll done, although you do need to use your brain when watching

Not the best review, but I did love the movie.  It was full of mystery and action, but comedy relief as well.  The best part, I think, was the revolution of the character of Dr. Watson.  Before, he'd always been the sidekick who can barely keep up, but he was different in the new movie.
