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

    Special features are not as in depth as the first Sherlock done by Richie. This one does not have the walk through which was excellent the way all bluray special features should be, where you can watch the movie and see the features pop out with descriptions of what lead to the decisions to shoot the sequence in the way they did.

    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.

    This is a smart movie with great action sequences. It's rare that a sequel is as good or even better that the first, but this one has done it! I also like the artwork on Best Buy's exclusive steelbook case, it looks good on the movie shelf.

    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.

    The UltraViolet digital copy is not as bad as it used to be. Now you download the Flixter app and your able to download the digital copy permanently to your apple device. You are no longer required to stream the movie. Your video library will now be in two locations but in easily accessible apps.
