Like the original entry, this installment appears to be an action film that just happens to have some famous literary characters in it. Like League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but much less awful. However, it’s not all cookie-cutter, as it appears the role of “Rachel McAdams” will be played by her understudy, Noomi Rapace, who is on loan from the David Fincher collection.
Once you get past the explosions, the cross-dressing, and Watson’s visible contempt for his employer…there really isn’t a whole lot left. So I hope you like explosions and smug RDJ!
