Sherlock Holmes (2009)

My Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 70%

now a bit after i saw the movie, i did some research to see how much of Robert Downey Jr's performance is actually Sherlock Holmes and how much is just Downey as we've known him since Iron Man.

and surprisingly, almost all of is like Sherlock Holmes.
Sherlock Holmes does carry a pistol often, he does very ridiculous experiments, he has very odd methods, he actually is a skilled martial arts guy, boxer, and sword fighter. he doesn't care much about women, he's unpredictable altogether, etc.

altogether, all my life i thought Sherlock Holmes is just how most comics and movies and tv show him as: some know-it-all British guy (which is he also is) that wears some ridiculous costume holding a pipe and doing that whole "Elementary my dear Watson" crap. i mean some of it is a tad unique as far as i know by Downey's performance and how there's a fair amount of action and such in the movie that takes the story more to our level when it comes to action. but as far goes as the character, Sherlock Holmes, the movie shows a lot more of the actual character than i thought.

other than that, i thought it was a rather nice enjoyable movie. interesting plot & villains and such. that's kinda ll i have in mind to say about it.
