I have to admit…this film looks like a lot of fun. But it sure as hell doesn’t look like Sherlock Holmes. Not the Sherlock Holmes I know and love. I won’t complain though – everything has to be updated at some point or another, and a faithful adaptation of Holmes would probably bore modern audiences to tears. Kind of surprised they went with Robert Downey, Jr for the titular role. I mean, the guy can act, but now he’ll, essentially, have to juggle two franchises. Oh well, I guess Christian Bale is doing it.
Sherlock Holmes is due in theaters on Christmas Day, where it has to do battle with Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel. Who will win this battle of wits? Elementary, my dear Watson! (I really have no clue which one will make more money – I just wanted to say that).
