"I know who I am! I'm a dude playing a dude disgused as another dude! "

I'll see this but it should be renamed 19th Century Action Hero.  This is not Sherlock Holmes.

Normally, I'd probably agree, Koop, but I like the look of this.

Well, its the Sherlock Holmes I'd rather see then the same old Basil Rathbone portrayal which isn't even accuate.

This was pre screened months ago a few times and hated by most. The date was moved how many times? AVP 2-xmas day, The Spirit xmas day plus others and now this? May not be as bad as Wolverweiner but still garbage.

Downey has not done good since Iron Man. Tropic Thunder was good but that Oscar nomination was not thought out. The cast of Tropic Thunder worked well, no one performance stood alone. Tom Cruise was weaker than Affleck in Extract.

 

It will be better than Avontards.

 In the original, guns were only used as a last resort.  Force was usually the province of the police. I hope this new movie doesn't portray Holmes and Watson as gun-toting cowboys.  Part of charm of these stories was how civilized they were. In fact, the main theme, in my opinion, was that intellect can triumph over brutality.

Have any of you actually read the original books?  Here are some good quotes from the Holmes wiki page -

Fist Fighting:

"Fist-fighting Holmes is described as a formidable bare-knuckle fighter. In The Sign of the Four, Holmes introduces himself to a prize-fighter as:

"The amateur who fought three rounds with you at Alison's rooms on the night of your benefit four years back." McMurdo responds by saying, "Ah, you're one that has wasted your gifts, you have! You might have aimed high, if you had joined the fancy."

Holmes engages in hand to hand combat with his adversaries on occasions throughout the stories, inevitably emerging the victor.[26] It is iterated in "Gloria Scott" that Holmes trained as a boxer."

Also Guns:

"Pistols Holmes and Watson carry pistols with them; in the case of Watson often his old service revolver. However, Watson only describes these weapons as being used on seven occasions."

And Martial Arts -

"Martial arts "The Adventure of the Empty House", Holmes recounts to Watson how he used martial arts to overcome Professor Moriarty and fling his adversary to his death at the Reichenbach Falls. He states that "I have some knowledge, however, of baritsu, or the Japanese system of wrestling, which has more than once been very useful to me." The name "baritsu" appears to be a reference to the real-life martial art of bartitsu."

So you see, Sherlock Holmes was a badass.    That is what the real Sherlock Holmes was like in the original books and short stories.  Go read them as they are rather terrific.

Sherlock Holmes was the Batman of the 19th century.
