Two Line Reviews - #333

Movie: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)

Professor Moriarty deals with guns and ammunitions and he anonymously sets european countries for a world war to let his business flourish. Holmes is as determined and witty as ever in trying to stop the professor from doing that!


The positives regarding the unconventional and explosive treatment that Guy Ritchie gave to the firts part in the Holmes story holds good for this one as well!
Robert Downey Jr. does enough justice to the marvelously created Holmes character and even the mundane looks special when he makes fun of and puzzles his dear friend Dr.Watson.
The chase scene in the woods with the slow-motions and the descriptive stunts are as good as Ritchie gives but might have been overdone in the climax, but the final touch makes up for it.


Bringing down the roof at the German ammunition centre was unbelievable to the core; Something else might have been good.

Holmes doesn't get better or worse with this edition.
