Friday Night Flicks Presents: Sherlock Holmes

Friday, April 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Sherlock Holmes movie posterA brawny, visually arresting period adventure. Robert Downey Jr. is an intriguing choice for the Great Detective, and his trademark bristling energy and off-kilter humor do much to sell this reinvented notion of Holmes. Jude Law is equally well-equipped as a more active Dr. Watson, and together, they make for an engaging team. Downey and Law's amped-up Holmes and Watson are built for the challenge of riding this roller coaster with the audience. Rated: PG-13
