Robert Downey Jr. is back again as Sherlock Holmes, and this time he’s up against his most fiendish challenger, Professor Moriarty. I’m Keith Kelly, and my review is coming up right now.
Guy Ritchie is again directing the world’s most famous sleuth-first brought to life in Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories, and then on stage and on screen. Just incase you haven’t seen Ritchie’s first film-this is not your grandfather’s consulting detective. In this rendition, the emphasis is first on action, and second on the analytical observations.
Like most sequels, just about everything is amped up. More fine-tuned is the relationship between Holmes and Watson-played again by Jude Law. They bicker, fight, insult and support each other with great vigor-in ways only best friends and partners can do. They are one of the best on-screen duos since Redford and Newman, and by themselves make the flick worth watching.
