At the Movies: Downey shines through murkiness of ‘Sherlock’ sequel

The olfactory sensation of body odor and vodka might mean little to most people. For the hero of “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” it's just one of many observations that keep him from getting one-upped in a world where everybody's trying to futilely stay a step ahead of him. Mass bombings by anarchists all over Europe have rocked the core of 1891 Great Britain as ordinary citizens wonder if their society can hold up under these conditions. Right in the thick of things is super sleuth Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.), who is less concerned with these events and more worried about the prospect of losing his partner and best friend, Dr. John Watson (Jude Law). With Watson's marriage inevitable, he intends to associate less and less with Holmes and his erratic behavior, but the world's greatest detective doesn't give his companions up so easily.
