Based on the legendary character popularized by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Guy Ritchie directs this first of what is to become a successful series, founded on a stellar and harmonious cast .
With a little luck, Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) and his trusted aid and flatmate Dr. John Watson (Jude Law) arrive in time and interrupt Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong) during his ritual murder of a sixth young woman, and lead to his apprehension. He is sentenced to death but requests a visit by Holmes and pronounces three more deaths that will 'change the world as you know it'. The sentence is carried out and the occultist is declared dead by Watson.
However 3 days later Blackwood seems to have broken out of his tomb, which starts Holmes examining all the clues he's uncovered- including Blackwood's connection to the Temple of Four Orders, and more importantly his plans to take control of Britain, and the world.
