Sherlock Holmes (Downey Jr.) is investigating a series of murders involving young women. He is led to Lord Blackwood (Strong) who is performing rituals with the young women and when he is hung for those crimes Holmes believes it is the end, but it is only the beginning. Sherlock uses his intellect, perception, and surprisingly his strength to navigate this mystery. Dr. John Watson (Law) is excellent as Sherlock’s assistant and he begrudgingly helps Holmes through many a sticky situation. This movie brought Guy Ritchie back into the mainstream proving he can be a commercially successful director again. Truly a fun movie with great action and story.
