Sherlock Holmes (almost completely non-spoilery)

Fun action mystery with a lot of good lines and satisfying scenes. Fits in pretty well with the canon Sherlock Holmes (a lot better than the Star Wars prequels fit in with the original trilogy, for example). Clever. Not amazing, but a good time.

Previews made it seem very violent. While it did have about as much fighting as the previews had led me to expect, the movie as a whole was a lot less focused on the fighting than I had expected.
