About the Film
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. John Watson, in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows." 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. 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.
Great film, avoid blu-ray
Love the film - this is a review to warn users about my mistake in (for once) buying the bluRay disc with the option of three formats - what could have gone wrong? well, if the digital download is using the seriously flawed Ultraviolet format which requires cumbersome installation of Adobe Air, setting up of accounts etc etc, everything can go wrong. It will not integrate with anything and the claims to being able to access via iPhone are inaccurate - it does not work. Warning to all iTunes users, avoid the Ultraviolet download format. Of course, this would not have happened had I been able to download the film from iTunes in HD !!
Is it me or are most of the films on sale more expensive from iTunes compared to purchasing an actual copy from the shops........
The first Sherlock Holmes movie was brilliant so I certainly couldn't wait for the sequel. However there is always that little concern that it won't quite live up to its predecessor. Often sequels are just studios trying to squeeze more money out of people and the result is rarely quality. With 'A Game of Shadows', however, I was pleasantly surprised. I absolutely loved it. Guy Ritchie does a stylish job with the film combined with a hilarious performance from Robert Downey Jr. I thoroughly enjoyed it. To be completely honest it isn't as good as the first one but somehow it is still a funny, clever and enjoyable film that I would definitely recommend.
