When diehard fans of Sherlock Holmes heard that Hertfordshire-born Guy Ritchie was set to direct a new Sherlock Holmes film, I can only imagine the confusion, consternation, and outrage that followed. Add to that the "questionable" casting of Robert Downey Jr., an American, in the lead role of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary gentleman detective, a British icon.

From official release/information:

The hangman did his job, Dr. Watson declared the condemned man dead... yet Lord Blackwood has emerged from the tomb to assert his deadly will over 1890 London. Is he in league with the forces of Hell itself? Is the whole Empire in peril? It's a mystery macabre -- and only Sherlock Holmes can master it.

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law put memorable imprints on Holmes and Watson in this bold new reimagining that makes the legendary sleuth a daring man of action as well as a peerless man of intellect. Baffling clues, astonishing Holmesian deductions, nimble repartee, catch-your-breath scenes of one slam thing after another -- director Guy Ritchie helms the excitement reintroducing the great detective to the world. Meet the new Sherlock Holmes!
