Mini Review - Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes (out Dec 26) sees the famed detective try to uncover the mystery behind a villian who has returned from the dead. Robert Downey Jr is terrific in the lead and Jude Law isn't too bad either. Sadly, there's not enough suspense or humour and I think director Guy Ritchie has taken an approach which is too dark, too serious. Grade: B-.
