As a huge fan of Conan Doyle and his literary detective, I was ecstatic to learn a couple years back that Guy Ritchie was going to helm a new Holmes movie franchise. After seeing the first two movies, I cannot be happier about what they've done. The movie-making is top notch and I've been nothing but impressed with the dynamic between Downey Jr. and Law. They're great actors who seem to share a genuine chemistry that works exceedingly well on camera. It's a new take on the partnership between Holmes and his trusted flatmate, Dr. Watson. They bicker, fight, disagree, steal each other's clothes, and yet you can tell there's an incredibly close bond between them. Watson finds it incredibly hard to commit to the married life and keeps finding himself drawn back to Holmes' side. It's rare for a movie to seemlessly combine intense action, drama, and unforced humor but Ritchie and Co. have done it twice now. The music, cinematography, dialogue, humor - it all combines to form two truly great movies. Also, both movies contain a worthy opponent for Holmes to match wits against. Jared Harris, who plays Professor Moriarty, gives a powerhouse performance in the second film as Holmes' ultimate foe and intellectual equal. Both movies come highly recommended from me.
A Game of Shadows is the second Sherlock Holmes movie featuring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law. This raises the stakes by introducing Professor Moriarty, Holmes' arch nemesis. This is a much more involved and faster paced film, with notable action sequences and CGI effects. A little disconcerting at first, there is a plot mechanism using quick cuts to show whats happening in Holmes mind and how he quickly responds. It works well once you are used to it, avoiding drawn out scenes. Great Blu-ray picture and DTS Master Audio. A film well-worth owning!
I HAD ALREADY SEEN THIS DVD ONCE BEFORE . THE RATING THAT I WOULD GIVE THIS DISC WOULD BE A FOUR STAR RATING . I LOVED THE STORY LINE ,AND THE ACTION SCENES . THIS IS A DISC THAT I HAVE ADDED TO MY COLLECTION OF VIEDOS . I ALSO HAVE THE OTHER SHERLOCK HOLMES MOVIE WITH ROBERT DOWING JR. IN IT .
Starting up where the original left off, Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and Watson are working together to stop the evil Moriarty from starting WWI. Several laughs along the way and excellent action sequences.
Great movie. I bought it for my husband for Christmas. We own the first one and love it. This one has great special effects.
