A Golden Globe Award winner for the film, Robert Downey Jr. becomes the latest screen embodiment of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's master detective in this fanciful adventure, which sets him and loyal assistant Dr. Watson (a well-cast Jude Law) on the trail of a supposedly executed enemy (Mark Strong, "Body of Lies").
Leaving Scotland Yard puzzled, the villain's murderous path prompts Holmes and Watson to hatch new means of fighting crime. Rachel McAdams also is in director Guy Ritchie's cast. DVD extra: "making-of" documentary. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
