Just in case you forgot for a moment and thought that “Iron Man” was the only big-budget movie franchise to feature Robert Downey Jr. in a leading role, then along comes “Sherlock Holmes” for its sequel, which sticks “A Game of Shadows” at the end.
If you remember that this movie is being directed by Guy Ritchie, then you already know that the same sort of action-packed tone from the first film is going to be intact here. While there is some sign that we will see more of Holmes’ neuroses this time around, you still have to expect everything from chase sequences to Sherlock dressed up as a woman for an undercover mission. These movies are meant to be an action-packed take on the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle classics — and as long as you do not take them too seriously, they are great fun.
“A Game of Shadows” will debut in theaters on December 16, putting it near the tail end of a busy holiday season in theaters.
