Has there been character assassination of Sherlock Holmes ?

    The Sherlock Holmes I knew was a dignified person... though I read it in the childhood... but the movie shows Sherlock Holmes like a street fighter...

    First James Bond became violent.... now Sherlock Holmes... Are movies changing older characters to make them more violent and show them in the new era?

    In what way? I always knew that the fictional character of Sherlock Holmes used cocaine, for example.

    And James Bond was always violent and slept with a lot of women.

    I just wrote a review hub about the Sherlock Holmes movie. I loved it. I guess Sherlock isn't very violent in the books, just really smart. But this is a Guy Ritchie film, and he loves doing things his way. I think the fighting scenes are filmed in a funny way. The whole movie is not too serious. I guess the books are more serious. But this is a Hollywood blockbuster, and is therefore adapted to a very wide audience.
