Get your popcorn, settle in and pay very close attention to fast-as-a-flash Robert Downey, Jr. as Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law as his sidekick Dr. John Watson in this totally engrossing adventure!

If you missed Guy Ritchie‘s first Sherlock Holmes film in 2009, don’t worry — if anything, you’ll get even more pleasure out of this fast-paced action romp!

Sherlock Holmes and Watson are anything but stodgy as you might imagine ‘gentleman’ were in 19th century London. No, underneath the tweeds and waistcoats, this pair are as fit, fighting-ready and trained as any action heroes.

But Holmes is also a hard-drinking, hard-living, brilliant sleuth who keenly and quickly observes every last detail of every mysterious situation.

The Robin to his Batman — Dr. Watson — is longing to return to married life…or is he? He’s about to get married to his patient fiancee when Sherlock involved him in a wild ride to unmask diabolical Professor Moriarty, who appears to be dedicated to evildoing while simultaneously befriending the Prime Minister of England.

The plot is completely confusing to follow but you won’t care one bit because Robert Downey, Jr. is so much fun to watch. His banter with Jude Law is so snappy and amusing and the pace is so fast that you will be completely engrossed.

Let’s just say there is plenty of unexpected action. Dr. Watson’s wife Mary (Kelly Reilly) turns out to be as resilient as her new husband — and as good a swimmer. Furthermore, Sherlock’s newly-introduced eccentric brother Mycroft (Stephen Fry) is as amusing as Sherlock himself.

So go see it now and, like myself, you’ll probably want to see it again!
