    I don`t really picture Downey Jr. as Sherlock, but I`ll give him the benefit of the doubt. What was up with the 300-esque slo-mo though?

    lol at that joke at the end.

    I love Sherlock Holmes! But this movie could go both ways.

    Sherlock Holmes is awesome because he`s clever, creative and a freaking genius that will rock your world, not because he`s funny. If this movie ruins it, I`ll be pissed.

    ya know, i really think hollywood should stop making full movies and just do trailers. because the trailers coming out for the past few years have been almost better than the actual movies themselves.

    Would have been better if they had used a different name for the character. Then they could have at least PRETENDED like it was an original idea.......

    Ooh, Clarendon.
    The trailer seemed interesting in the beginning, but then they showed that Holmes is being played by Robert Downey Jr. and then everything changed. It went from a mysterious Holmes tale to a Hollywood movie starring Downey Jr. I`m torn between removing it from Doyle`s work and a good entertainment for 1.5–2 hours.

    Hollywood MAKE YOUR OWN dratING MOVIES!

    If you just want to make a generic sci-fi action flick, make one. Don`t steal a totally unrelated name, and the ignore everything it involves.

    Sherlock Holmes is NOT an action hero. Make your own god damned Victorian hero. Quit buttdrating famous characters to make a cheap buck on their name!

    Description is misleading. This trailer makes Sherlock Holmes look like a action pitfighter. What he *IS* is a detective gentleman of British decent.

    This movie would be good if they had called it what it was "British guy beats up people, A mystery may be solved. Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3"

    Perosnally I love the original Sherlock Holmes charachter, but I am not against this either. It`s a new spin on an old classic, which is hardly a new concept. I don`t think this butchers the original Sherlock Holmes, it`s just a stand alone interpetation.

    Wow, I got this account just to comment on this trailer. I think a lot of people here have forgotten that Sherlock Holmes really is this much of a badass in the stories. Watson comments multiple times on Holmes` proficiency with the singlestick, swordsmanship, and hand-to-hand combat, not to mention that Holmes was also said to be a natural boxer and ultimately defeated Moriarty with his knowledge of the fictional martial art "baritsu". The fighting may not have happened "on-screen" in any of the stories, but it certainly did take place, so I don`t think that this interpretation is as far off as people are saying.

    Nope, I don`t think i will watch this... There are too many movies in which they just ignore the whole premise of the original story, and add in a generic, save the world(nation, or city too, I`m looking at you, war movies and superhero movies) before the bad guy`s plan destroys it...

    There is no real thought in these films, just guns, explosions, sex appeal, and pretty graphics...

    I don`t know WTF you`ve been reading but it isn`t Conan Doyle`s Holmes stories. Holmes only ever mentions one woman who engenders any emotions at all (A Scandal in Bohemia)

    "To Sherlock Holmes she is always THE woman... It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind... He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer.

    Amorous!?

    Holmes was adept in pistols, sword, fist-fighting, wrestling, martial arts, etc but these were more the intellectual pursuits of a fit, active man than anything else.

    Sherlock Holmes is a thinking group of novels. Not action and explosions.

    @ Devi: What, you mean actual Holmes? Yes. Or at least, House is like Holmes. Based on him, you see.

    What an INSULT to Sherlock Holmes. >:( I am not happy! I agree with Lixa. If you mix Doctor House and Doctor Lightmen, you get Sherlock Holmes... this... this is crap :( I was hoping for something good because I love Sherlock Holmes...

    so again another classic character turned into a 21st century mockery... Sir Arthur Conan Doyle will not be impressed in the slightest.. whats next? Poirot going to japan and fighting ninjas?

    anibroglio,hound of the baskervilles turned out to be a vicious dog with a disguise put upon it to make it seem like an unidentifiable beast. not truly super natural. the supernatural was only hinted at or made up in the stories, this makes it seem that its real and in your face. how do i know? i read the damn books!

    They jig this stuff up so much that it becomes almost completely but not entirely unlike the original. Only resemblance is the name.

    WTF? I did not know Sherlock Holmes was the 19th century James Bond...

    Definitely not what I expected, and can`t say that`s a good thing.

    Lmfao. I`ve been skeptical of this movie since it`s anouncement. I`m a HUGE Holmesian, and this looks rediculous.

    I shall watch for the lulz it`s sure to provide though. XD

    jinxiejae, I wasn`t referring to the storyline. I was referring to Holmes in general. Holmes WAS that arrogant. He was a brawler. He did leave a mess. He dabbled in cocaine. He was just like Downey portrays him. That was what I was addressing.
