Sherlock Holmes (2009)

To any of the Sherlock Holmes fans out there (and I count myself amongst them), especially if you've seen the classics (movies and TV), what did you think of RDJ's take on the titular character?

Surprisingly brilliant Lilith

I've been a big fan of Holmes and have been since I could read and have seen almost all of the takes on him in direct canon movies, shows and metatakes on his character.

RDJ's presentation of him was refreshing, new and most of all believable within the universe of those movies.

I wasn't keen on the sunglasses and motorcar in the second one but that's not RDJ's fault

Did you feel that would be a little too progressive for Holmes to do?

I've seen most, but not all, incarnations of the Holmes characters, and find each being something unique to the role. Off the top of my head, I don't recall being disappointed in any.

I quite enjoyed both of these movies with RDJ, and to say he had exceptional chemistry with Jude Law would be an understatement.

I don't think I quite understand what you are saying here.

Your comment regarding the sunglasses and motorcar.

I loved it. A whole new energy, lots of action, and with Jude Law! What's not to love?
