About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: In an act of criminal negligence, Ritchie has wasted Robert Downey Jr. in a sequel that eliminates smarts in favor of relentless headbanging. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Dec 20, 2011

Rotten: It's complete trash and makes a mockery of Holmes's vaunted deductive reasoning. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Jan 16, 2012

Fresh: Ritchie's franchise - 7% classic formula, 93% adrenaline - is smart in a showoffy way that flatters its star as well as its audience. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Dec 16, 2011

Fresh: Downey and Law remain this presumptive franchise's draw. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Dec 16, 2011
