Sherlock Holmes: A Games of Shadows Review
Sherlock Holmes is a movie for the masses – there’s exotic locations, tons of action and a charming and witty hero. Though some of us may want more story than plot, let’s face it, 70% of the box office revenue will come from overseas audiences where plot is king. Does Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows entertain? You bet it does.
REVIEW: Post-Bromantic Attraction in Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows Or: Holmes + Watson 4eva | Movieline
Doyle students may see the final act telegraphed from a league away and heave a heavy sigh, or peck at the franchise’s signature obligatory plot convolutions and self-satisfied cleverness. Action purists should be entertained enough by the slick spectacles Ritchie chains together, set against as handsome a historical London as you’re bound to get from the movies. But focus on the heart of Holmes and there’s a well of emotions, attraction, and longing roiling beneath the natty threads, Downey-isms, and faux Victorian panache on display. The women of Sherlock hold their own, for the most part, but this is a romance for men — at least, it’s one for Holmes and Watson and Moriarty, who each discover that the dread, or triumph, of a world-changing event is no match for the heart-pounding pull of finding, or losing, the one person in the world to whom you’re indelibly, inextricably tied.
Not a huge Holmes fan, but if I was going to check out something it would be this...

Just saw this.
I do love that theme though.
Saw this today. Enjoyed the first one a lot and enjoyed this one as well. Score was really well-done too.
I haven't seen the movie yet, but I will vouch for the score, as well. Good ****.
