My Review: Awesome movie by Guy Ritchie. I feel he has had quite the dry spell with his last few movies like “Rock and Rolla” and “Revolver” but this one really came through. Some where saying the movie was over polished but I think it fit right in with the London setting. I was pleased by the chemistry of Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr. They both bounced off each other really well and made it believable they have been partners for quite some time. I highly recommend seeing this movie in the theaters. It looked great and had just enough action mixed with comedy.

Overall Rating: A
