Sherlock Holmes A Game of Shadows is the second installment with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson respectively. As others have commented this movie is better than their first Sherlock Holmes movie. Holmes is pitted against his enemy Professor James Moriarty as Holmes tries to figure out Moriarty's evil plan. There is plenty of fighting but it is less gory than the first movie. The scenes that show how Holmes sees future events are unique. The movie's slow motion scenes add an interesting film technique as well. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson have a final confrontation with Professor Moriarty in Switzerland. The movie's final scene asks the question: "The End?".

Benedict and Martin will always be Holmes and Watson to me. Good film though.

Perhaps better than the first film, Downey is perfect and this time around Jude Law decided to hold his own, and did. In my heart nothing can replace Basil and Nigel, but I have to admit this team is as good.

Very good movie, entertaining and clever at the same time. Beautiful settings in the XIX Europe, very well recreated.

Best movie my wife and I have seen in a long time. I'd even give it the edge over The Avengers. If you liked the first movie, you'll love the second one! Brilliantly written and brilliantly acted. The ending scene is pure genius. We skipped back to watch it again.

Couldn't get into this one. Fight scenes are super annoying with slow motion sped up crap. Story was, I don't even know what it was about. Didn't watch the last 30 minutes it was so bad.

I like him, I just don't think they did this properly.

More violence. Alas, it appears Hollywood needs to bruise both the ego and body in their quest for entertainment. Mission accomplished, I guess.
