Sherlock Holmes 2

December 17, 2011 by staff 

Sherlock Holmes 2, Guaranteed too is the return of the principals. So it’s Robert Downey Jr. back in the title role, not quite as dissolute (alas) this time around, but heavily invested in the same two passions: his transparent love of colourful disguises and his disguised love of the good Dr. Watson (Jude Law again).

Since, once more, the script has a bit of fun with this homo-ertc yearning, it’s a shame that, once more, the actors don’t. For all their bantering and bosom-buddying, the pair somehow lack the one thing they can’t do without – chemistry.

No matter, since Holmes is a solo act early on, quick to establish his he-man credentials by punching out a quartet of dudes on the set-dressed streets of old London town. That’s when another returnee, director Guy Ritchie, dusts off his own repetitive act. He insists on shooting the action scenes with that recycled “visualization” gimmick: First, the all-seeing Holmes imagines, in slow-mo, every step of the mayhem to come, then the duplicate speeded-up version confirms his foresight.
