Our Bitesize Sherlock Holmes 2 Review.

Go see it. Simple as that.

It has action, great humour, the attention to detail for a period piece of this scale is fantastic, the chemistry between Downey Jnr and Law is more solid than the first and the cinematography is outstanding.

Sure it has some faults, a major villian just seems to vanish with no conclusion to his story and slow motion sequences are used a little too much, but for the most this is Indiana Jones in a top hat and tails or James Bond in a flat cap and tweed suit. In a year crowded with poor sequels and downright bad movies Sherlock Holmes 2: Game Of Shadows thankfully delivers the goods.

Avast! Trailer For Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows.

If like us you thoroughly enjoyed Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes back in 2009, then you’ll be delighted with the above trailer for the sequel Game Of Shadows.

Looks like a far darker film with the introduction of the infamous Professor Moriarty, played by Jarred Harris, (Mad Men, Fringe), and Sherlock’s older brother Mycroft, played by Stephen Fry. The chemistry between Law and Downey, which for us at least is what made the original so enjoyable, is maintained as are the excellent slow motion actions set pieces and fight scenes.

A Game Of Shadows is released in December.
