Product Description

Amazon.ca

Guy Ritchie (Snatch, RocknRolla) attempts to reinvent one of the world's most iconic literary figures as an action hero in this brawny, visually arresting period adventure. Robert Downey Jr. is an intriguing choice for the Great Detective, and if he occasionally murmurs his lines a pitch or two out of hearing range, his trademark bristling energy and off-kilter humor do much to sell Ritchie's notion of Holmes. Jude Law is equally well-equipped as a more active Dr. Watson--he's closer to Robert Duvall's vigorous portrayal in The Seven Per-Cent Solution than to Nigel Bruce--and together, they make for an engaging team. Too bad the plot they're thrust into is such a mess--a bustling and disorganized flurry of martial arts, black magic, and overwhelming set pieces centered around Mark Strong's Crowley-esque cult leader (no Professor Moriarty, he), who returns from the grave to exact revenge. Downey and Law's amped-up Holmes and Watson are built for the challenge of riding this roller coaster with the audience; however, Rachel McAdams as Holmes's love interest, Irene Adler (here a markedly different character than the one in Arthur Conan Doyle's "A Scandal in Bohemia"), and Kelly Reilly as Mary Morstan, the future Mrs. Watson, are cast to the wind in the wake of Ritchie's hurricane pace. One can imagine this not sitting well with ardent Sherlockians; all others may find this Sherlock Holmes marvelous if calorie-free popcorn entertainment, with the CGI rendering of Victorian-era London particularly appealing eye candy. --Paul Gaita

From the Studio

Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) has always been the smartest man in the room...until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large-professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)-and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder-a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by professor Moriarty. The cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead of Holmes as he spins a web of death and destruction-all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent entertainment May 6 2012
Format:DVD
Another Guy Ritchie master piece! Fabulous performances by Robert Downie Jr and Jude Law, they work so well together. Just the right recipe of humour, action, analysis, intrigue and adventure. And of course Jared Harris' dark and sinister performance as Professor James Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes' arch nemesis...excellent Sir! An excellent entertainment experience. Nik.A

5.0 out of 5 stars An elementary buy June 18 2012
By Scott Flower TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is a very successful sequel that lives up to the first one and keeps the franchise interesting. When I say successful I'm not just referring to the box office, I'm talking about a rich story with great action that will have you coming back again and again well after the mystery is solved. While this story is a bit darker than the first film it fits perfectly because Sherlock has finally met his match in Professor Moriarty and the mind games these two play with each other takes Sherlock past his limits to outwit the only man who can outwit him and try to prevent a world war. The perfect duo of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law keep the humor coming in a way only they can deliver without ruining the seriousness of the movie. I highly recommend this movie to everyone even if you haven't seen the first one, it's not necessary but does help in establishing some character relations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Action but needs more dialogue Nov. 9 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I did enjoy the incrediable action shots but I would liked to have had more dialogue between the actors as they work well together. I am more of a drama person so I do like the words and these guys play off each other so well, plus I think it would have added movie's storyline and given it more suspense. Therefore less of the slow moving action shots and more of the actual actors speaking would have added to the story and entertain in the long run in my opinion.

I just love this movie and purchasing it here from amazon actually allowed me to have both of the Sherlock movies on Blu-ray. The movie is so well done and Robert Downey Jr. and Jude law really bring Holmes and Watson to life.
