Good sequel to the series

on 5/25/2012

Sherlock Holmes 2 was a very entertaining movie, though I felt the first movie had a more logical flow. And with Sherlock - logic is EVERYTHING. This movie seems to move from scene to scene often with very tenuous connections and a thin plot to hold things together. But with that said, Robert Downey Jr & Jude Law are both great in the movie and it's the quintessential popcorn movie to enjoy on a Friday night.

Product Overview


Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law returns as his friend and colleague, Dr. Watson, in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.”

Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room…until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may give him an advantage over the renowned detective.

Around the globe, headlines break the news: a scandal takes down an Indian cotton tycoon; a Chinese opium trader dies of an apparent overdose; bombings in Strasbourg and Vienna; the death of an American steel magnate… No one sees the connective thread between these seemingly random events—no one, that is, except the great Sherlock Holmes, who has discerned a deliberate web of death and destruction. At its center sits a singularly sinister spider: Moriarty.

Holmes' investigation into Moriarty's plot becomes more dangerous as it leads him and Watson out of London to France, Germany and finally Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead, and moving perilously close to completing his ominous plan. If he succeeds, it will not only bring him immense wealth and power but alter the course of history.

Editors Note
Note Brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) matches wits with the nefarious Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) after uncovering a diabolical plot to destabilize the entire Western world in this sequel from director Guy Ritchie. A criminal mastermind without a conscience, Professor Moriarty is Holmes' worst nightmare -- a man who uses his incredible intellect for unspeakably evil purposes. When the Crown Prince of Austria dies and Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan) rules the death a suicide, Holmes steps back to see the big picture. But little does Holmes realize that Professor Moriarty is about to commit a crime that will shock the entire world, and that solving it may be the death of him. Jude Law returns as Holmes' faithful sidekick Dr. Watson in a sequel also featuring THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO's Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams.
Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's Downey's movie. With his cool, flippant manner, his Holmes stands apart from the danger, thinking it through visually before performing it, remaining insouciant in the face of calamity." 12/14/2011
Los Angeles Times "Law's down-to-earth and slightly fussy Watson proves once again to be the right counterweight to Downey's flighty, fidgety, flinty Holmes....Downey has made this sly sardonic Sherlock stylistically all his own." 12/16/2011
Movieline "The play between wild-eyed Downey and the serenely unsettling Harris crackles with a chemistry befitting Doyle?s iconic literary nemeses as Moriarty stays coolly one step ahead of our hero..." 12/15/2011
Entertainment Weekly "Director Guy Ritchie loves whooshy, rapid-fire speed shifts, and uses them for hypnotic sequences..." 01/06/2012
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "HOLMES 2 is an improvement on its predecessor....In the action department, it scores a bullseye..." 02/01/2012
Sight and Sound "Ritchie comes up with breathtaking moments....A GAME OF SHADOWS is lively and diverting..." 02/01/2012
