166, Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows
Well, luckily nothing has changed. London has evolved, Law and Downey Junior are even more comfortable in their newly adopted alter egos and with a new love of the character through BBC's 'Sherlock' I really felt i knew a little bit more about him this time round.
For those in the UK who have seen Sherlock, the BBC adaptation just finished its second series you will instantly recognise one has definitely decided to copy the other, I'm just not sure which way round it goes. The introduction of Sherlock's brother (Mycroft Holmes) in both adaptations is well received and the movie version hails the legend that is Stephen Fry, albeit slightly disturbing as a 'Qi' regular to see my favourite academic almost baring all for the viewers in a performance that's only bettered by my favourite character of all time, Melchett (in whatever Black Adder guise you care to mention).
Guy Ritchie played another blinder. Jolly good show!
