Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Reviews

The second installment in the series, churns like a lump of moldy dough sitting in the pit of your stomach, trying ever so hard to be digested.

A welcome return for the World's Greatest Detective Other Than Batman, and a sequel that impressively conspires to be more challenging than its predecessor.

We Got This Covered

As it stands, with its engrossing-yet-obscured-by-over-the-top-CGI plot, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is little more than elementary, my dear moviegoer.

The truth about this Game of Shadows and its predecessor is that neither has a story worthy of its hero. The story is not only often improbable, it is often simply impossible to follow.

IGN DVD

The mystery and fun of the first feature is replaced with a bland miscast villain and slam-bang action nonsense, none of which is very impressive.

The overall effect is of sort of Steam Punk Toulouse Lautrec portrait, intricately designed, occasionally visually dazzling, and well-acted throughout.

The bromance nearly boils over in this messy but satisfying sequel to the 2009 feature.

I actually enjoyed A Game of Shadows more than the original. This will be entertaining for those of you who enjoyed the original and others who just will watch RDJ in anything.

If only they'd spent the cash on a bad guy with stature, instead of taking that phrase, "the banality of evil," so literally. Playing this Game might have been even more fun.

If this film is an indicator of the quality of films in 2012 I'll be praying that the Mayans were right about this little blue planet going boom.

It's complete trash and makes a mockery of Holmes's vaunted deductive reasoning.

The effort to reproduce the spontaneity of the previous film's success imbues A Game of Shadows with a weary tone of overexertion.

Dear Guy Ritchie: My name is Robin Hood. I need to be brought into today's world of short attention spans, nonreading, and lovable, cantankerous heroes. If you can turn Sherlock into a glib, pompous ass, imagine what you can do for me.

Se volta a representar uma experiência divertida e cheia de energia, desaponta também por jamais oferecer algo de novo ou realmente interessante.

The whole movie, chock full of queer undertone, is one long sly smile-and deliciously so.

Guy Ritchie digs deep into his trusted bag of tricks and turns his patented stylised action filmmaking up to maximum wattage. Fortunately, Ritchie still manages to create an entertaining film in spite of his excessive ways.

Sherlock Holmes - A Game of Shadows does have one trick up its sleeve that makes it a worthy companion to its predecessor: the upgrading of the homo-erotic subtext to clear-as-day text.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Fans of the first film will find plenty to still enjoy especially the lightening pace, banter and camaraderie of Downey Jr. and Law...despite an over-reliance on slow-mo.

The Mercury

The broader strokes of Moriarty's plan become evident a little too easily, dropping like a grand piano rather than a penny. But the finer machinations make the story a delight.

It gives a cursory nod to intellect, a quality most other Hollywood blockbusters are all too willing to ignore.
