Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows offers the kind of action-packed Hollywood spectacle that will keep its audience riveted to the edge of their seats.
September 25, 2012
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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

That Downey-Law chemistry still makes this a game worth playing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 7, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

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

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.
