Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are back as Holmes and Dr. Watson, again directed by Guy Ritchie, in this enjoyable sequel that pits the sleuths against their ultimate nemesis: Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris).
He has his hand in a bunch of tragedies around the world, and once Holmes puts the puzzle together, he races across Europe to stop Moriarty from literally changing history. Rachel McAdams also returns, and other cast newcomers include the screen's original "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," Noomi Rapace. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
