Rich·Uncategorized·September 11, 2012Netflix Queue Review: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows The adventures of Holmes and Watson continue as they match wits with Sherlock Holmes most dangerous adversary Professor Moriarty. Right The amazing chemistry between Holmes and Watson continues to be a high point of the series. Jared Harris delivered as Moriarty and brought some classic villainy to an iconic villain. Stephen Fry was awesome an Sherlock’s brother Mycroft. Less bantering between Holmes and Watson’s wife which at times was overkill in the first film. Wrong Irene Adler! No spoilers here though so you’ll have to see it or read Wikipedia. Her chemistry with Holmes was a tremendous high point in the first film. Noomi Rapace served no purpose and while her character was essential to the plot I felt any actress could have filled that role and probably done better. The over abundance of slow-mo detracted from the film as they used more than they should have. WTF! The ending only because it threw me a curveball I did not see coming.
