SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS (2011)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars
The sequel to the 2009 hit is just as exciting because Holmes is against his most cunning adversary, Dr. James Moriarty.
Holmes is as crazy as usual, probably even more since Watson getting married. His obssession with camouflage is outrageous – he makes his own costumes, dons wigs and makeup and even a dress! Watson is ever loyal to Holmes, even though he knows Holmes is devastated that he’s getting married.
There is a shortlived cameo by Rachel McAdams, who always looks radiant and beautiful. I just adore her dress! I adore the colour of the dress! I adore her! Noomi Rapace plays a gypsy who gets caught up in Moriarty’s plan for world domination.
One thing I liked about this update on Sherlock Holmes is that Holmes is really skilled in martial arts and I love those scenes where he analyzes his next move, his surroundings and his opponents. Very sharp and quick thinking there. Speaking of an update of Sherlock Holmes, I can’t wait to watch BBC’sSherlock because of Benedict Cumberbatch!
Sherlock Holmes: They’re dangerous at both ends and… crafty in the middle. Why would I want anything with a mind of its own bobbing about between my legs?
