Sherlock Holmes:A Game Of Shadows
SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS Review
Surprised this thread isn't up yet...figger it's because most people(EXCEPT ADGY) don't really care. The first one was, by all accounts, a servicable snoozefest and nothing I have seen so far suggests this one is any better.
Frustrations about Moriarty aside, the sequel delivers on its promise of bigger action and more comedy. Itís unfortunate that the script has to sacrifice the complexities of the mystery and the signature villain in order for Ritchie to show every single piece of wood in the world splintering into a billion pieces, but itís not unexpected since the first film was already headed down that path. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows doesnít play an elegant game of exciting chess, but itís comfortable enough to enjoy a game of exploding checkers.
