ok i knew i wasn't gonna like it cuz i despise english accent fakers. but gdamm the opening scene with holmes and watson acting like jet li was just too much. i don't remember reading where they had those types of skills and i'm not about to buy it now even if it is robert downey.
he may be alright in that iron man suit but in regular duds he is no tuff guy. poo on this dud. :P

actually is one of my favorite movies. only one I have ever gone to the theater to watch 4 times. and then got the blu-ray/dvd/digital combo pack as well. needless to say, I love that movie.
You may not have read enough
Actually Sherlock Holmes was an accomplished fighter in baritsu and bare knuckle fighting having defeated an accomplished prizefighter in one of his novels. He is also an exert with the sword and singlestick and pistols. The fight scene with Moriarity is a proof of his skills.
Holmes' "The amateur (http://boards.slackercentral.com/wiki/Amateur_boxing) 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."

I didn't care that much for it the first time I saw it but since then I've watched it a couple more times, and I appreciate the movie a lot more because of it. I hope they do a second one.

hey i didn't say no one could like it. i'm just not easily amused all the time. and really with all the british actors we have today they had to use downey? meh. clive owen would have been a better choice imo.
