Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Reviews

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 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.

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.

What Culture

Much like the first Sherlock, the good work by Downey Jr. and Law is largely undone by flat humour, stilted action and a dull, breadcrumb-following plot unbecoming of Doyle's beloved detective. The ending, though, is much better than the film deserves.

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

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

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

Ritchie's first Holmes adventure was refreshing in its goofy action-blockbuster approach to the character, but Shadows suffers from diminishing returns.

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

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.

Badass Digest

the touches that made the first film a surprise seem to have disappeared. The Holmes/Watson relationship is now shrill, the facade of a mystery story has been chucked for a nation-hopping action adventure, and the volume has been turned up to 12.

Time and again, the film assaults the eyes with cartoonish visual trickery and deflates the story with its obvious artificiality.

You may ponder: Would this movie actually be less aggravating with Adam Sandler in it, playing twins?

Like its predecessor, it's a disappointing case of all style and precious little substance. Guy Ritchie has a flair, but he doesn't have a clue.

The sequel lacks some of the fun of the first, despite the fact that - or maybe because - it adds more explosive action.
