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.

The first movie played it safe and payed off, as this refreshing update of the victorian super sleuth was a massive it, so it came as no surprise that two years later comes this much bigger sequel. But has we all know Bigger is not always better and being so quick of the mark you could expect to be disappointed.
The thing is that A game of Shadows is mostly a huge success. For the first twenty minutes you could be forgiven for wondering what's going on as the plot seems all over the place, but just like the first 2009 movie the fun is finding the clues, and as this movie progresses they all start to fit into shape like a jugsaw puzzle. Downey JR and Law are the perfect couple, so much so that you expect them to be married as they bicker but you know they love each other deep down in a man-love kind of way. This is impounded when Watson gets married and Holmes sulks off.
Things pick up with a outstanding train sequence and the fantastic slow-mo mortar shelling of a forrest that is thrilling. The film is even funnier than the first and having a scene with a naked Stephen Fry as Holmes's older brother you can only thank god it's not filmed in 3D! But what makes this film superior to the first is in the shape of Holmes's nemesis Professor Moriarty, brilliantly played by Jared Harris (son of Richard) as he plays it not as a hissable bad guy , but some one who matches Holmes intelectually but is the flip side of him. Every scene they are together is mesmerising. But unfortuntley the film does have a few faults Noomi Rapace (Girl with the Dragon tattoo) plays a gypsy looking for her brother but in her first English speaking role is seriously under used and all she seems to do is eat, drink where a hat and run. Also maybe at times the clever plot does tie it's self up in knots leading to confusion that can be rushly explained, but they are niggles in what is a great old school adventure film with a few modern twists that;s much bugger, funnier than the first, leaving us all waiting for the third chapter.

 Good Game My Dear Watson..

The second installment of Guy Richies Sherlock Holmes and it leaves of from the first film so it is very similar in style and approach. Like the first film theres some great action sequences and flashbacks / rewinds that explain how events occur. Yet again the story, acting, script and humour is brilliant. The downsides are that it is very similar to the first film, the effects become a little over the top at times and it is a little confusing but then this is an exciting and entertaining film that can be watched more than once. Overall an entertaining and stylish film. Looking forward to the third??!!

 GREAT SEQUEL

The first installment of Sherlock Holmes was brilliant. I've highly looking forward to the sequel sequel ever since I've found out it had been confirmed. Having now seen the sequel, I felt the chemistry between the characters were excellent. I felt the plot could have been better, even though I highly enjoyed it. Definitely worth a watch for all you fans of Holmes.
