Seeing everything is Sherlock Holmes' curse.
So the titular character played by Robert Downey, Jr., tells us in the new trailer for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Fortunately, he's got his trusty sidekick Watson (Jude Law) and Adler (Rachel McAdams) along for the ride.
The task at hand? Only thwarting the foremost criminal mind in all of Europe, Dr. Moriarty. The stakes? All of Western civilization, pretty much. No pressure.
It appears that eveningwear is donned, witty lines are exchanged, plot twists are undertaken and stuff blows up, making for an enjoyable cinematic ride.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows hits theaters Deceember 16. Did you see the original? Will you be making this a part of your holiday season viewing?
