Robert Downey Jr. Summons a Fightin’ Good Sherlock Holmesnew

Robert Downey Jr.'s scruffy, comedically nimble turn goes a long way to redeem the half-coherent storytelling and occasionally elephantine production. The game's afoot, even though it's not so fresh.

'Sherlock Holmes' and 'Nine': Downey Shines, Day-Lewis is Atrociousnew

Daniel Day-Lewis may normally choose parts in which he can do no wrong, but as the tormented film director in Rob Marshall’s musical, he doesn’t come close to drinking anyone’s milkshake. And since Guido is the essence of the story, that makes Nine a bright, shiny snooze.

Doctored Sleuth: There's Potential in 'Sherlock Holmes'new

Apparently tired of being a fringe filmmaker, Guy Ritchie has gone mainstream with Sherlock Holmes. He has relaxed and made something for a mass audience, without sacrificing his energy and irreverence.

'Filth and Wisdom' is Surprisingly Chastenew

The New Wild West: Talking with Guy Ritchienew

Timing, as you may have heard, is everything.

Guy Ritchie Refuses to be Swept Awaynew

Ritchie's got some pair, and I'm not talking about the cojones it takes to play Mr. Madonna to a world-class ball breaker.

Guy Ritchie Manages to Upend Thuggish Machismo in 'RocknRolla'new

Guy Ritchie didn't make the mistake of putting his wife Madonna in RocknRolla; but his latest gangster film queers a sense of Macho to match Madonna's sense of Slut. Hopefully, Ritchie's fantasy won't roll back human progress; but this time it's shaped an unexpectedly enjoyable movie.

Guy Ritchie Steps Backwardnew

Revolver turns out to be a touchy-feely ultraviolent gangster flick. Come over here and give Scarface a hug, you big gruff pussycat.
