Who’da thunk that it’d be a couple of Sherlock Holmes movies that would bring a certain verve back to action movies? Holmes wasn’t exactly a man renowned for his sense of humor, yet it doesn’t feel at all out of place coming from Robert Downey Jr.’s Holmes. And you totally buy it when he responds to a question of “What do you see?” with “Everything.” He’s Tony Stark in the 19th century.
This is me assuming, of course, that this second flick from the same team will be as entertaining as the first one. This trailer gives me hope that it will be.
