After a bit of a lull, I decided to get back to watching older movies in the library. Suggestions to 'oldies but goodies' are very important, especially when all the new releases have long holds lists.
I pulled out Sherlock Holmes, the 2009 edition with Robert Downey Jr. I think that RDJ is a fantastic actor who really gets into the characters. His Chaplin was great.
However, I was not so impressed with his Sherlock Holmes. I know that I have been influenced by the other versions which seem to be more 'Victorian'. I don't know. Certainly, many have said that RDJ's version of Holmes is closer to the books, but I just couldn't get over all the special effects. Perhaps they were just over the top or maybe I just couldn't see how they really enhanced the story, I don't know.
What is your review?
