There is a new criminal mastermind at large--Professor Moriarty--and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil and lack of conscience may give him an advantage over the detective.
I think BBC's Sherlock has spoiled me...
I used to love the Hollywood Sherlock Holmes films. Now, while still entertaining, they are like a handjob compared to BBC Sherlock. I like it, but you know what I really want. It's not as good as the real deal, Mr. Hollyfield.
Maybe I should say it like this...
Robert Downey Jr. is great as Sherlock.
Benedict Cumberbatch on the other hand, phenomenal and I can't see anyone else in the role.
Jude Law is great as John Watson.
Martin Freeman is excellent.
Irene Adler in this film is forgettable (seriously, no joke, I completely forgot Adler was in these).
Irene Adler on Sherlock is badass, and actually much hotter if you ask…
guy ritchie has always been a filmmaker focused on details -- the little machinations that contribute to something larger -- & his sherlock holmes adaptations exemplify this more than ever. in holmes' mind ritchie finds a constantly shifting sea of layers & deconstructions, the gimmicky slo-mo fight deconstructions being the most obvious example, but they can be found throughout as ritchie's sherlock uses the same deconstructive mentality on the mysteries he solves, the disguises he wears & even the relationships he has with the people around him. to him, all simply larger wholes made up of seemingly insignificant details he just needs to wrap his head around... of course all those details always proving themselves to be anything but.
i adore Game Of…
Although the first Sherlock Holmes was a commercial and critical hit I struggled to see the appeal. I’m no Holmes purist, in fact I don’t really enjoy his brand of detective story as I much prefer a whodunnit rather than a howdunnit, but Guy Ritchie’s first stab at the classic literary hero was restless, obnoxious and featured a poor villain. Given its success it is no surprise to see they have stuck with this formula once again.
Ritchie is so keen to make sure the audience is never bored that he bombards them with action, a larger than life character and an ADHD directorial style. To say this film rattles along quickly is an understatement as it never once stops…
Despite making the right move of heading into the darker territory, the follow-up chapter to Sherlock Holmes fails to capitalise on the excellent platform provided by its predecessor and is a highly disappointing sequel that presents a downgrade in each storytelling element, tries too hard to be funny, and is also marred by its poor rendition of Holmes' arch-enemy.
Following the events of the first film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows continues the adventures of Detective Holmes & his companion, Dr. Watson, as they travel across Europe in a race to prevent their fiercest adversary, Professor Moriarty, from executing his sinister plot of starting a global war, only to find that their enemy is always one step ahead.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
An important reason why Sherlock wins the "game" is that he, unlike Moriarty, gives a crucial importance to the pawns. Mary and Simza are both characters that seemingly pose little to no threat to Moriarty's grander scheme, yet it's only through their efforts (Mary deciphering Moriarty's code, Simza stopping Rene) that Sherlock gains the upper hand before making his final move... and so the pawns are ultimately the ones that bring down Moriarty's/The King's operation.
Moriarty's failure is, as highlighted by Sherlock during their first encounter, his "acute narcissism and complete lack of empathy".
Every piece is important, and if you forget that for a second, you may as well surrender.
Really, I could ramble on about this…
Robert Downey Jr's transition from Hollywood pariah to the biggest earning star in Tinseltown has been nothing short of miraculous. An actor who always had talent to burn, it's a credit to him and his savior (his wife Susan) that he could return from the abyss to such monumental success. He's made some great career choices, from Iron Man and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, to Zodiac and Good Night, & Good Luck, he's been shrewd. He's also took the odd risk, Sherlock Holmes didn't sound like the right fit for Downey Jr, but boy did it work.
Round two of Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes sees him coping with both the imminent departure of Watson to married life and an intricate game…

Sherlock Holmes:A Game of Shadows
I use to see this film as a lackluster sequel to a film I really loved but enjoyable enough. This time watching it I actually quite loved it and think it's as good as the first film. Jared Harris as Moriarty has also grown on me, his war of words with RDJ's Holmes are great to watch. The action scenes are also fantastic and the relationship between Watson and Holmes is maybe the greatest bromance ever.
Pretty fun and cool take on Sherlock. Never saw the first one but this stands extremely well on it's own.
Passable. It suffers from Guy Richie's recurring problem; he believes he's significantly smarter & more innovative than he actually is. He's clearly a director of some talent, but that talent has limits.
فلم هوليودي مغامرة واكشن وقتالات، ممتع إلا أنه ما يمت لشارلوك بصلة، فلم كونان السادس يعبر عن سلسلة شارلوك هولمز واجواء الغموض فيها بشكل أفضل 😁
يستحق المشاهدة فقط لأجل شخصية واتسون واداءه، حضوره أقوى من شارلوك نفسه!
Somewhat decent sequel, but has tons of the flaws the original never did. Still an enjoyable movie since the leads never lose their fun and chemistry. Ending is very low-key but otherwise has extremely high stakes.
Not as strong as the first one and Moriarty is disappointing, but Ritchie's directing is still on point.
Another mildly entertaining clunker from Guy Ritchie.
This is not the Sherlock I know. I read all of Sherlock Holmes' books and short stories, and this is just not the Sherlock Holmes I knew and imagined. For a better representation of Sherlock Holmes, watch the British TV series Sherlock. And Jude Law is not Watson. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman is infinitely better at being Sherlock. But nevertheless, this movie works as an action movie with good direction and set pieces. Just imagine that they're not Sherlock and Watson and you'll be fine.
