Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

04 Jan

Rarely do we get a sequel that surpasses the original which is why I was surprised at just how good this film was.

I loved the first movie but didn’t get to see it at the cinema so when I heard about the sequel I really wanted to go see it.

Robert Downey Jr reprises his role as the witty Sherlock Holmes and along with his side-kick, the soon to be married Dr Watson (Jude Law), sets out to track down Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) who he believes is responsible for a number of deaths and bombings around the world.

Set just over 20 years before WW1, the professor, who owns shares in multiple war profiting companies, hopes to start a world war so he will make a fortune from supplying the “bullets and bandages”.

With more fight scenes, laughs and clever twists in this film than the first, this is clearly the better film.

Four stars and a definite must see at the cinema.
