Product Description

Product Description

SHERLOCK HOLMES 2 (BD/BIL)

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

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.

By Simon Bergeron TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Jan. 5 2014
Format: Blu-ray
While the first movie was a fast-paced steampunk reimagining of Sherlock Holmes, its sequel felt the need to do the exact same thing with more explanations, more unamusing thrills, and comedic moments that fall utterly short, but the presence of Robert Downey Jr. saved it from total apocalypse.

This movie has "The Dark Knight" printed all over it. Having been successful with Sherlock Holmes and The Dark Knight a year prior, the studio seemed to rush the sequel into production with nothing else but "make it like The Dark Knight". Therefore, more explosions happen for the sake of explosions, even though it's been poorly written who the real responsible was. Rachel McAdams' character gets an underserving fate, and most of what made the first movie so good and fun is definitely repeated here with a sense of money. Hence, it's not fun, it's loud, repetitive, over compensating the lack of a script and boasts a bombastic music score from a tired Hans Zimmer. What should and could have been a triumphant return from Sherlock Holmes, who's this time pitted against his worst enemy (Moriarty) is nothing of the epic kind. To make matters worse, Noomi Rapace plays a completely useless character who simply follows Holmes and Watson. In short, there's absolutely nothing I found thrilling or worthy of my time here, save for Downey Jr.'s extravagant yet always surprising acting game. I just hope this franchise is dead and buried until someone does the obvious: burn this movie and re-shoot it like it never existed.

As far as special features go, and even though this movie was quite a bit of a monetary success, not much is to be found here. Focus points (35 minutes worth), a Maximum Movie Mode hosted by Robert Downey Jr., and a useless Second Screen app, which I'll never use.

All in all, skip this and keep to the first movie, it was and still is the best of both. Or better yet, give the new BBC series a run, this Holmes sure delivers.

An excellent 2nd outing for Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. I like their take on the "Holmes-Watson" personas. Good acting and plenty of action/special effects, interesting plots and looks great on Blu Ray, the DVD is also excellent for both sound and video.

I love both Sherlock movies in this series. We watched this movie in the theatres and loved it. When both Sherlock movies came on sale at Christmas for $2.97 each, they were the first two items added to our Amazon order and they made great stocking stuffers. Thanks Amazon.

Loved the 1st movie, the 2nd one was even better. Guy Ritchie is a genius and Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are a great team.
