Sherlock Holmes (Downey Jr.) is investigating a series of bombings and while everyone thinks it is either anarchists or nationalists, Holmes has an entirely different theory. Irene Adler (MacAdams) delivers a package that is not what she expects and Holmes is there to save the day. When she confronts the man who went the package she realizes that she is in over her head. For the man who sent the package was Professor Moriarty (Harris), Sherlock Holmes’ greatest adversary.  Dr. John Watson (Law) is struggling with his love for Mary (Reilly) his wife and his love of working with Sherlock Holmes on these mysteries. As the story unfolds we see that Sherlock is not always right and when he predicts fights he finds out others can counter his moves. These slight imperfections are a fantastic twist to this franchise which is highly entertaining.
