I went to see "Sherlock Holmes"

I went to see "Sherlock Holmes" today. It stars Robert Downey Jnr as Holmes and Jude Law as Watson investigating the seeming rebirth, after being hanged, of a notorious criminal and mass murderer.

It isn't a bad film. It rattles along at a decent pace, and is mildly amusing in places. I don't think it's necessarily aimed at me though. It's the sort of film that teenage boys might like because of it seemed to get a kick out of knowing it was being clever, if that makes sense, and that always struck me as something that teenage boys always seem to do.
