5 – Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)


Jolly amusing action romp with pitch-perfect chemistry between Holmes (Robert Downey Jr) and Watson (Jude Law). In the words of Empire magazine: “bigger, better and funnier” than Ritchie’s first Sherlock instalment.  Bears little relation to Conan Doyle but it matters not a jot. A fun indulgence, particularly if you’ve been exhausting your intellectual muscles on lots of European art house.

Like: Spending a few hours with your funny, good-looking, detective, stuntman friend.

Core truth: Some fishermen muddy the waters to confuse the fish. Who’s the fish? You are, Mr & Mrs audience member, but do not fear.
