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

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.

Although I'm not very familiar with the older incarnations of Sherlock Holmes, I would like to get into them some day to see the first actors to bring this amazing sleuth to life. I enjoyed both of Guy Ritchie's action-packed versions of Sherlock Holmes, and Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows is definitely my favourite of the two. Part of what makes these two films so awesome is the chemistry between the cast members. It's rare to see movies these days where everything between the cast members worked. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law made fantastic partners--hell, they were one of the highlights of the first film, in my opinion. The chemistry between Holmes and Moriarty was just as appealing and fun to watch, and it shined during the showdown at the falls. The action was well-done, and of course, the music, done by one of my all-time favourite composers, Hans Zimmer, was AWESOME as usual.
This movie is definitely among my favourites of 2011, and the soundtrack also remains one of my favourite soundtracks alongside 'The Dark Knight' soundtrack. This is a great (and clean!) action movie that any family with kids around the age of ten should enjoy.
P.S.: I also received this DVD in perfect condition.

Watson and Holmes ate at it once more and the game is afoot. Do not think of this as a sequel to the 2009 movie or relating to the books. It is more of a tongue-n-cheek Bond with lots of action. Moriarty is his own megalomaniac self. We get to travel all over Europe in 1891 or a reasonable facsimile.

The year is 1891. France and Germany are at each other's throats. There is a series of bombings. Most people pin it on anarchists. But Holmes has a different theory; we know what that theory is. We get to go along as Holmes proves his theory. What about Dr. Watson? Well it seems he's getting married. Will this throw a wrench into the works? And how can the new Mrs. Watson felt the Sherlock's brother is fond of her?

of the new Mrs. Watson
? One thing I appreciate in movies is placing the names of the actors/characters next to their picture so we are sure who they are.

This film continues with the same cinematic techniques as the last one incorporating the slow motion wind back that makes this series enjoyable. Holmes is once again locked into combat with the evil Professor James Moriarty. The basic plot is relatively straight forward and unimportant to the film. The enjoyment comes from the character and dialouge of Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes. The individual scenes outweigh the plot. Based on the book "The Final Problem."

Holmes on the auto carriage: "One day every town in Europe will have one of these."

The movie assumes you are familiar with the characters and relationships from the first one. I would recommend you see the first one before this one.

Great teen entertainment.

No f-bombs, no sex, male rear nudity.

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.

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.

What can I say, this one outdid the first (which was also very good). Basically if you liked the first one you will no doubt love this one as well! Picture and sound quality is top notch! Get it!

- Spoiler alert- If you enjoyed the first Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law this second one will not disappoint! There is even more action and suspense with enough humor to keep you smiling. I dare say that I actually enjoyed it more than the first as did many of my friends. And I'm sure we have not seen the last of the lovely Rachel McAdams either. Can't wait for the next installment as I'm sure there will be one now that Moriarity is in the picture.
