Definitely!

The versions coming out now have no true portrayals... just "name" actors.

This. Jeremy Brett really was perfect in the early to mid years of the Granada shows. Had that hungry, lean look about him with the focused eyes. It was sad to watch later when he was puffed up with illness.

I like the new films with Downey but see the heightened action part as the standard adrenaline junkie fix needed in action films of today.
