‘Sherlock Holmes’ Packs a Punch

But his beautiful mind is lost in the shadows amid the bombs and banter.

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, or Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, face a new supervillain set on destroying the world in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

It is playing at the GTC Merchants Walk 12 and the Park 12 Cobb Stadium theaters in East Cobb. 

Holmes and Watson square off against Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), who has cooked up a scheme to pit various European nations against one another in the hope of profiting from the demand for weapons. 

A Gypsy fortuneteller, played by Noomi Rapace, tags along. Rachel McAdams, Holmes' love interest in the first film, makes a brief appearance. Guy Ritchie once again directs, turning Arthur Conan Doyle's classic literary character into just another Hollywood action hero.

This is Sherlock Holmes 2.0—more of the same explosions and Holmes-Watson banter as the first film, just bigger and louder.

Holmes is supposed to be really smart, distinguishing him from every other crime fighter; now, thanks to Hollywood, his brain is secondary. So the flick-o-meter gives Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows three out of five.
