First Hit: This was one of the worst scripted and directed films ever and a true waste of time.
If I ever chose to sit through another film directed by Guy Ritchie, I would hope someone comes into the theater and shoots me.
I would prefer the pain of this than to sit through another mindless attempt by a man who has no understanding of filmmaking. He has good actors, whom I’m sure got paid well, puts them in front of a camera, and through a bunch of special effects try to makes something that people will sit and oooo and ahhh to.
Please will someone give Richie an apprenticeship to a filmmakers school?
Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes, knows better than to do films like this with a director like this. He's too smart, at least I thought he was. Jude Law, as Dr. Watson, will, with experience, know better than to do films like this where he has no character development or meaningful part. Michelle Mulroney and Kieran Mulroney, wrote a crappy, mindless script. Guy Ritchie might do well doing music videos which tell no story. In the film business the objective is to tell a story. His attempt here and in the previous one Sherlock film, which I also panned, at directing reeks of an amateur child playing with grown up tools and only liking the switches and dials to play with.
Overall: How does he get money to make these things?
