SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS

SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS – BOREDOM SOLVED

NO MYSTERY ABOUT IT – WORTH A FULL PRICE TICKET

Guy Ritchie achieves an impossible feat and makes a sequel better than the original film.  He doesn’t do it alone, however, as the updated storyline and writing help put a modern spin on the detective duo of Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) & Dr. Watson (Jude Law).

Fans of the first film will be delighted to see that Holmes has met his match in a new nemesis, Professor Moriarty.  He has the intelligence and just the right amount of evil to draw viewers in.   Without giving too much away, Moriarty has targeted Holmes and those around him and stays one step ahead of the clever detective throughout the film.

Although the movie drags in spots and could really be shorter, we were pleased overall at how it came together.  Moriarty played by Jared Harris excels and pumps adrenaline into the Sherlock Holmes series of films.  The ending practically guarantees another chapter in the battle between Moriarty and Holmes but go check it out to see for yourself.
