This is the second Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr. If you are familiar with Sherlock Holmes, then you know there are some
expectations that have to be met. Sherlock has to be moody; he has to be smart; he has to be the "star" of the crime scene. In this story he runs across someone who might be smarter than him. Needless to say this does not go over well with our brainy sleuth.
Lots of fun action. The interplay between Holmes and Watson is good. Holmes is jealous that Watson is getting married as it means he won't have a good buddy to "play" with after the nuptials.
The setting in late 19th century London is fun to look at. A neat little story with action and suspense. If you see it, rent the first SH to get in the mood.
