Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

I saw the trailer for the new Robert Downey Jr Sherlock Holmes film at the Empire Big Screen for the first time. I hated it. There was too much fighting and I was not impressed with Holmes dressed as a woman. There was very little about Holmes's genius mind and his deductions. And I still cannot get over the fact that Robert Downey Jr looks nothing like the Holmes described in the books or illustrated by Paget. Holmes is meant to be tall, rake thin and with an angular face. Robert Downey Jr fulfills none of these criteria! There was nothing in the trailer about Stephen Fry playing Mycroft either which was a disappointment.

Suffice it to say, much as I love films, I will be giving this one a miss! If truth be told, ever since I saw Benedict's portrayal of Sherlock in Sherlock, there is only one Sherlock Holmes for me and that is Benedict Cumberbatch!
