    Synopsis


    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
    Brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) matches wits with the nefarious Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) after uncovering a diabolical plot to destabilize the entire Western world in this sequel from director Guy Ritchie. A criminal mastermind without a conscience, Professor Moriarty is Holmes' worst nightmare -- a man who uses his incredible intellect for unspeakably evil purposes. When the Crown Prince of Austria dies and Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan) rules the death a suicide, Holmes steps back to see the big picture. But little does Holmes realize that Professor Moriarty is about to commit a crime that will shock the entire world, and that solving it may be the death of him. Jude Law returns as Holmes' faithful sidekick Dr. Watson in a sequel also featuring The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Stay away from UV

      I really enjoyed this movie and have been in the habit of picking up digital copies combo packs. The was my first experience with the Ultra Violet and I am pretty certain it will be my last. First thing they made me do was create two memberships, one for Ultra Violet and one for Flikster. Then it was a pain to download which is stored in a protected file that only their player can access. You can not transfer it to iTunes and I found in a quick internet search this is an ongoing complaint that use to get a response of an iTunes code away. They have stopped that. So unless you have a high capacity Ipad, Ipod Touch (only the touch not nano or classic) or Iphone it won't play it. Even if you do have those devices you will need the Flikster app and the movie itself takes up 1.9 GB

      Contrary to the product description, which includes UV digital copy besides the blue ray disc, The disc is received without the UV logo. It took me several phone calls, several agents to get them to understand the matter. After a few days, tried my luck calling again, and got mixed response. I could come across a rep who understood the situation and ordered reshipment, The new one received still didn't have UV logo. I tried UV folks, they concluded after several back and forth emails, that the they can not provide a digital copy, because the package I received from Bestbuy did not have the UV logo. This is a case of non-fulfillment of the order according to the product description. The issue remains unresolved.

      A sequal to be proud of

      One of the best films that I have seen recently. For me since I have over 150+ DVDs of all movies that I would watch more than once and still love it no matter how many times I have seen it. I love Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law together, they fit eachother perfect complmenting eachother wonderfully. In this move I laugh, worried, cried and would watch it all over again knowing and it stil had the effects on me no matter how many times that I have seen it. If you havnt seen the first one see and then watch this and if you havent seen the first one still watch it. It was visual masterpiece that you can enjoy more times than just the first.

      Excellent movie / Crazy (good) plot

      I can't really say much: movie preference is subjective. I can go on about how fantastic the plot is, how great of an actor Robert Downey Jr is, and how great this looked on my flatscreen. But at the end of the day, YOU are ultimately the critic, and you may hate what I love or love what I otherwise hated. I will say this: this movie is for those who enjoy a good movie that makes you think. I can watch this 3-4 times before completely feeling comfortable understanding the underlying plot and how every character ties into the others. Maybe I'm just slow, but I felt the same about the original Sherlock Holmes as well.

      After seeing first Sherlock movie and rather liking it, I was expecting a lot from the sequel. Maybe that's why it didn't live up to what I hoped I would see, but was enjoyable movie nonetheless. Most of the old cast is back and stellar as always, even more slow motion scenes make appearance, which only helps flesh out amazing physics we can't usually catch with naked eye and story while not as twisted as in the first one, keeps you on the edge nonetheless. All in all, if you liked first movie, you will definitely like this one as well. It might not be as great, but it definitely is worth watching!

      A much improved plot with better acting and lots of humor due to Stephen Fry as Holmes' brother and better lines from minor roles from Watson's wife and Holmes' housekeeper. Noomi Rapace was a BIG plus as a gypsy princess. I hope there is another sequel that is as good. THe relationship and connection is deeper and more believable; Robert Downey JR and Jude Law NOW really play off each other better. Downey's portrayal of Holmes is more diverse and enjoyable...he should have gotten best actor fot Chaplin; maybe he would have gotten respect and more interesting characters and parts sooner.

      Robert Downey Jr. is great!...looking forward to a third movie, please. Rachel McAdams is soooo hot!...fell in love watching the first....just not enough of her in the sequel....and Jude Law makes the perfect sidekick! Realistic 19th century villain and plot...the story keeps your interest throughout the entire movie and there is a lot to laugh about as well. Again, the writers hit it out of the park! I think it's Guy Ritchie's best work to date!,...and the Cinematography for having such a dark backgound, almost a black and white feel is so crisp! I loved it and I highly recommend! MK

      With all the Sherlock overload lately, between the PBS series and the Elementary series, I almost passed on this movie. I am glad I did not. This Sherlock is different enough from the two TV series to create an entirely unique version of the well know character. I also questioned whether Robert Downey would fill the role well. Turns out he does his interpretation of Sherlock in fine fashion, creating a distinct version of the character. All in all, an enjoyable viewing that we will probably watch again fairly soon. The special features were not too bad either.
