‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ ★★★1/2

(2011, Warner Bros.; PG-13, 129 min.) Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are Holmes and Watson, teaming again with director Guy Ritchie in a sequel to their 2009 hit. Holmes’ arch-enemy Professor Moriarity (Jared Harris) figures heavily in an anarchist plot to bring war to Europe. It’s much more of an action picture than a work in the Sherlockian tradition, but it’s great fun. With Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace. (Roger Ebert)
