Saw the Robert Downey version of Sherlock Holmes. Unrecommended. It seemed he was doing a Hugh Laurie voice from HOUSE imitation -- much of his dialogue swallowed, ruined the film for me. Jude Law's Watson was better. James Bond stunts -- still prefer cerebral Rathbone and Jeremy Brett as Holmes.
Wish they would make films either in black and white or real technicolor instead of the tones they are so fond of these days.
As far as I am concerned the only actor who 'got' Holmes was Jeremy Brett.
