  • B.

    But the Downey/Law/Richie movies are a lot of fun.

    They really tackle different angles, downey handles holmes being a little more james bond (as he should be) then some portrayals, and the BBC version does a great job modernizing it and showing holmes mental approach.

    And both Mycrofts are fantastic in different ways. Fat Mycroft in the BBC special was amazing.

  • As someone who was really into the original books and old movies (no, I'm not a hipster haha and yes I was a fan years before the RDJ movies came out) - Benedict Cumberbatch does a significantly better job. I don't even recognize Holmes and co. in the RDJ movies.

    • Honestly I'm pretty impressed with how close Cumberbatch gets to the character as shown in the books. That said, the 1930s actor Basil Rathbone is closest to how I imagine Holmes to look.

  • i like both but i definitely like Cumberbatch's performance more than RDJ. also from a purely physical aspect he certainly resemble's the character as described by Doyle. I prefer Cumberbatch's portrayal and also appreciate the modern spin on the old stories.

  • I enjoyed RDJ version but honestly it's an modernized American version of Holmes... so take it for what it's worth.
    Cumberbatch is an amazing actor who I actually think is misused in the show as it is a bit boring and doesn't showcase his talents enough.
    And you failed to mention "Elementary" on CBS - although I can understand why as that show should never have made it to air LOL

  • Downey Jr. Cumberbatch creeps me out no matter what he does. It's his face.

  • I prefer Cumberbatch's performance over RDJ's, though I enjoyed them both. I'd say Cumberbatch's performance is more true to the original character, while Downey Jr's is more an exaggeration of Holmes's more notable, and bombastic traits.

  • RDJ is a joke. Benedict Cumberbatch plays the role with such tenacity.
