Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
To be honest, we only went into A Game of Shadows because there weren’t any time slots for We Bought a Zoo that could fit us, and rotten tomatoes placed The Darkest Hour at 13% Fresh.
So we went into the cinema not expecting much because we weren’t too impressed with the first Sherlock Holmes. That said, we came out pleasantly surprised by a more than decent installment of the detective’s adventures.
This time round, Holmes finds himself facing off with his intellectual equal, the evil Professor Moriarty, who has hatched a diabolical scheme to start a world war, while at the same time maneuvering himself into a position to benefit from strife and conflict.
Guy Ritchie, with his signature visual directorial style, awesome costumes and outlandish disguises for Sherlock, brings a lot of fun and frenetic action to this film. And this time, the story is much, much better with a stronger and more engaging villain.
