Am I the only one that prefers RDJ as Sherlock Holmes over Tony Stark? And don't get me wrong, I love me some Tony Stark. However, there's just something about that old English eccentric that makes me happy. Not to mention, the chemistry between Downey and Law is heart-achingly glorious. They're perfect for each other! Throw in a cameo by Rachel McAdams (who was sorely missed for the rest of the movie!) and Stephen Fry, plus the stunning visual effects, and you're sure to find yourself in for a treat!
Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) has always been the smartest man in the room...until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large - Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) - and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder-a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by Professor Moriarty. The cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead of Holmes as he spins a web of death and destruction-all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.
