Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Rated PG-13 129 minutes 2011

The famous-detective franchise fronted by director Guy Ritchie and Robert Downey Jr. keeps things entertaining, but loses a little steam this time out. Sherlock Holmes (Downey) faces off against the evil Professor James Moriarty, who looks to drag the entire world into war—and profit from it. Of course, Watson (Jude Law) is sleuthing alongside Holmes, and the two actors still have a fun screen chemistry. Noomi Rapace, the original Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, is a nice addition as a gypsy with a troublesome brother. This sequel has a tinge of “been there, done that,” and doesn’t really distinguish itself from the original. Still, Downey is good for a bunch of laughs, and Ritchie does manage some exciting fight scenes.
