I recently watched the second opus of Sherlock Holmes’ adventures in movies. Still interpreted by the charismatic Robert Downey Jr and efficiently seconded by Dr Watson ( played by Jude Law once again .)
This movie focuses on Holmes‘ nemesis, professor Moriarty. In the movie, Moriarty is willing to start a massive war. As always, only the brilliant detective understands these nefarious plans.
Replete with technological anachronisms and dramatic action scenes, the movie is entertaining but takes quite a lot of liberty with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character and series of stories.
But to sum up : if you liked the first, you will love the second. I wish there would be a third 😉
IMDB gives it a 7.4, I give it an 8.
