SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS
The irresistable and marvelous (as always), Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law reprise their roles as "Sherlock" and his friend and partner in crime-solving, "Dr. Watson," in this somewhat complicated plot, sprinkled with lots of fisticuffs, which I'm not fond of - (or, "of which I'm not fond" -- for those who expect acceptable grammar herein ). Directed once again by Guy Ritchie, the "...Game of Shadows" is bound to delight Holmes fans. (When I saw it, the audience applauded at the end. Oh, and do stay and watch the final credits roll, nicely done!) Stephen Fry as Sherlock's brother, "Mycroft Holmes" has a few scenes, one of which is totally, hysterically, straightfaced memorable! Rachel McAdams is "Irene Adler." Jared Harris is the evil "Professor James Moriarity" (hiss-boo). 'Nuff said. Go see it.
