I used to love reading Sherlock Holmes stories. He was witty, smart, he introduced the science of deduction. But I never imagined him to be an action star.
Some of the comments found in the youtube page criticizing the trailer (thus, the movie), which I agree as well:
Why is Sherlock Holmes bare-knuckle boxing? This looks like a ludicrous, horrific murder of an english literary great.
I agree. They ruined a master-piece and turned it into a farce. They turned aristocratic, intelligent, and modest Holmes, into some Bourne, or James Bond figure. Can’t watch this.
