|that's going to focus on Sherlock Holmes's martial arts prowess. Despite the fact that Googling Holmes's martial art baritsu instantly reveals that it's a mispelling of Bartitsu, a Victorian English martial art still practiced today (no, really), Ritchie and Downey have decided that Baritsu must be a complete cypher and is therefore the perfect opportunity to to combine Downey's 7 years of wing chun training with Guy Ritchie's brown belt in Brazilian jiujitsu (plus some judo and karate) to create the ultimate fictional martial art ever seen on screen. |
Now there's a lot of obvious stuff here with great suck potential, but it occurs to me that the real story may happen when notorious self-hating latent homosexual Guy Ritchie is forced to depict the Holmes/Watson relationship on screen. Will he be able to control himself, or are we going to end up with Showdown In Little Tokyo 2: This Time It's Foggy?
