Thanks for the great review Ralph! I loved this movie in the theater. Good to know it's even better the second time around on Blu-ray. Am especially looking forward to hearing this one on DTS-HD.

Late to the party
Saw this last night and came here this morning to check out the review. Specifically I was interested in the audio portion. The surround sound portion and the lower frequencies were fantastic (I thought). The flies buzzing around us the subwoofer taking down the house was all greatly done.
Like everyone else som issues with following some of what Downey was talking about. Wasn't to crazy about the movie as a Sherlock Holmes movie as it was "to modern and less about being a detective than I am used to". Definately set up sequels and I liked the movie overall so will see those.
Thanks for a trusted source to check reviews even if it is after the fact as I often do...
Oh video -- overall good didn't like the opening sequence as on 1-2 of those cuts I was wondering if my PS3 was sending me an upconverted picture..... it got better
Adler -- well played up until the very end. The last 1-2 scenes with her I really didn't like her acting - not sure why

Does the rental version have crippled audio?

Showed both this and its sequel to my sweetie, who generally does not like action films but has read all the Holmes stories.
She loved the films and said that she now wants to see Downey's Chaplin.
My best friend had the same reaction, calling Downey's Holmes "a pest" - which is one of his highest terms of praise.
I've decided that they need to see some real Chaplin films first. (They've never seen any.)
Any of those out on Blu-ray? (I have a box set of DVDs that includes The Gold Rush, City Lights, Modern Times, and The Great Dictator.)
