Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Reviews

Michael Dequina

That Downey-Law chemistry still makes this a game worth playing.

Laramie Movie Scope

The entire story is largely nonsensical and Holmes foresees all kinds of events he couldn't possibly foresee in real life, but it is all in good fun. There is plenty of comedy to go along with the drama and action.

Such a great cast. Such a bland concoction.

The Standard

Source fidelity aside, the thing that really matters is that Ritchie's re-interpretation is exciting, witty and great fun.

It feels like the fourth or fifth film in a tired franchise.

The Sun Herald

Infinitely more watchable than its predecessor, with Downey, Law and, now, Fry all on top form. Yet McAdams is sorely missed.

Same Victorian clutter, same overstuffed frames, same Guy Ritchie directorial hyperactivity.

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

... Benefits greatly from its villain, an adversary for Holmes who is his intellectual equal. In the best scenes, Holmes and Moriarty merely talk, playing out a battle of wits and showing a mutual respect.

Matthew Toomey
ABC Radio Brisbane

These characters have become too smart for their own good. The never-ending banter between Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law gets tired quickly.

Leonard Maltin

The production is still needlessly overlong and overblown, a far cry from your father's (or even your cousin's) conception of the master detective. But it's certainly lively and has clever moments that involve Holmes' keen powers of observation...

Game of Shadows reminded me of nothing so much as another lackluster sequel released this year: The Hangover, Part 2..

Two straight man inadvertently ending up in a scenario in which they appear to be homosexual can no longer be described as the height of comedic sophistication.

Killer Movie Reviews

is as fiendishly clever as it is intricately constructed. It remains true to the original appeal of Holmes and his methods, while going as large as 21st-century CGI can go, as well as incorporating a bracing modern sensibility

Movie Metropolis

If viewers go in expecting another Basil Rathbone or Jeremy Brett as a cerebral Holmes, star Robert Downey Jr.'s vigorous portrayal of the character will surely be unsettling.

It's gone from an action franchise with identity to something mostly generic and uninspiring.
