Sherlock Holmes

The new Sherlock Holmes movie is great fun. I really like these versions of the characters.

It is a similar sort of fun as Pirates of the Caribbean. The plot rollicks along without making any more sense than it has to but also without obvious holes, there are some interesting set-piece fights and nice scenery and costuming to look at, and through it all there are these deeply nifty characters interacting in amusing and effective ways. Teamwork! The score's good, too.

Definitely recommended.
