Movie review score
3/5

Full title: Sherlock Holmes: The Game Of Shadows

What’s it about?
Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson join forces once more in an attempt to bring down their fiercest adversary, the genius Professor Moriarty.

What did we think?
Anthony says: This largely irreverent film pays little respect to the original literary piece. Instead of a deep, complex psychological web, we get served up stunts and fight scenes aimed to appeal to the masses with little respect to the original character. In other words, it’s quite similar to the first one of this modern movie franchise. Not bad but it’s unlikely you’ll want to watch it a second time. For me? Meh.

    Silly fun. Three stars at best. Way too clever for its own good – it left me scratching my head trying to figure out what the aim of some subplots and tangents throughout. And as Anthony says, too much focus on slo-mo isn’t-this-clever action.
