Chris and I had the pleasure to watch an early screening of Sherlock Holmes 2 on Monday the 12th at the Veteran's 24 in Tampa. It was luck that I won tickets to perhaps one of the movies we really wanted to see this year and for free. Alas, we pulled a Francis Drake and much like he, drove past the exit as the ramp I was looking for was only in the northbound lane and not the southbound expressway lane! So, we went round and round until we finally found the round. Irony had it that at least once if we turned right instead of left we would have found the theatre faster. Being that it was 6:30 and the show started at 7:30 we had to eat at the theatre instead of doubling back to a decent place to eat to avoid not getting a seat. Often they give away more tickets than there is actual seats.
We was stuck on one of the closer rows to the front but it worked out ok, some of the fight scenes hurt my eyes due to being so close but again the movie was worth it. The plot continued from the last movie, it carried on Watson's wedding as a great secondary plot and held the right mix of action, comedy and intrigue to make this entertaining from start to finish. RD Jr did an excellent job and is a superb actor that carried the move along with his co-star in such a way that I never felt at a loss for time while watching.
I don't care to spoil the movie by saying much more but I can recommend that on Christmas Day or after, go see this movie! What more do you want in life? A great movie and to get away from your family for a few hours? YEA! Serious, go see it you won't hate it.
