Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes

Jude Law as Watson

Do you buy Holmes as a buffed up action hero?

I'll see it, I'm sure. I like most of Guy Ritchie's stuff sans Madonna and I've been a fan of both RDJ and Jude Law for some time.

They definetly don't hurt being in the movie. Hopefully it's entertaining, just not what i expected for Sherlock Holmes, esp the super powerish feel to him.

I'll still see it. I will definitely wait to rent it, though. And I've got mediocre expectations, so hopefully it can impress me.

The history of the character? I know enough to know that Downey Jr's life experiences make him pretty ideal to play the role.

Are they worth reading? Do they hold up? Will it take me 2 minutes per page just to figure out what they are saying?

Yes, read them. Most are short stories, anyway.

Absolutely worth reading. Absolutely hold up. I don't know what the the third thing means.

A lot of times, when I get to reading something older, the language makes it a little cumbersome.

If you have a modicum of intelligence then the prose will not give you any trouble. These stories were mostly printed in the early 1900's. Its not Shakespeare (though I don't think that Shakespeare is particularly difficult, either).

I have seen Every Holmes movie-so will see this one.

I have also read more than half of the stories-Great stuff!!

Homes was Not a fighter, but Did have an uncanny ability to escape death-even faked his own a few times.

Jude law as Watson-Ghey-Watson was older and a much larger man. Now he would throw down if he had too.

From what I remember Holmes was more like if Gil Grissom (CSI) and Aaron Hotchner (Criminal Minds) had a baby. I read some of the stories when I was a teenager and it was my first experience with science and psychology being used for catching criminals. I might be totally off base since it's been so long since I've read them but that's the sense I get when I think about it.

Sherlock Holmes the action movie? Looks like it could be entertaining but I definitly got a WTF vibe from that trailer.

Sherlock Holmes was a cocaine user in the books wasn't he? I know in the BBC productions he was. Watson would always come in and Holmes would be shutting something in his drawer, and Watson would say, "What was it this time?" and Holmes would say, "A gram of cocaine."
Supposedly he was bored by everyday life and he wanted the coke to keep him interested in the day.

Opium was his drug of choice-he would get high and go into long thinking dazes-and usually come up with the answer to the case.

That is what i thought when i seen the trailer. That is Hollywood for you.

Holmes has little fights in some of the BBC productions. He usually sort of stands there and gives two or three punches, then he says something about it all just being a matter of angles.

I get that it's an action movie but the trailer left out any clue as to the mystery or plot line. Looked like they packaged up every action shot and added music to it.

Looks interesting though.

I just got back from the theater tonight and saw Sherlock Holmes. I really enjoyed it. Guy Richie did a good job directing it. The movie plot had me guessing all the way through. Law and Downey Jr. mixed well as Holmes and Watson. Rachel McAdams was nice on the eyes too ;) I'll be interested in the sequels coming from this. Anyone else see it this weekend?

Saw it today, good casting, good production, decent plot, but it was just missing a spark. It was honestly a little boring...maybe what i would have expected on PBS, but not from Hollywood.

Yes. When Holmes did not have an exciting case he would inject a 7% solution of cocaine. There was even a movie titled 7% solution. Holmes was a bit of a broody character.

Actually, Holmes was quite the pugilist. Maybe you just read the wrong half. A friend of mine has a paperback collection of the short stories. The cover is a drawing of Holmes boxing with his shirt off. As strange as it might sound, that but of the trailer is quite true.
