SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS
Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey, Jr.) has always been the smartest man in the room...until now!
There is a new criminal mastermind at large —Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) — and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective.
Mixing business with pleasure, Holmes tracks clues to an underground gentlemen’s club. It is there that Holmes encounters a Gypsy fortune teller whose unwitting involvement in the prince’s murder makes her the killer’s next target. Holmes barely manages to save her life and, in return, she reluctantly agrees to help him. The investigation becomes ever more dangerous as it leads from England to France to Germany and finally to Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction — all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.
“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” is the bonus feature Friday and Saturday nights, May 18 and 19 at the Starlite Drive-In. 129 minutes.
