Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Hi people!

I recently watched this pretty interesting film of mine.
It’s called Sherlock Holmes: A game of shadows. It’s a sequel to a previous
film, but I haven’t seen the first one. This one was made in 2011 and stars
Robert Downing Jr and Jude Law. There is a lot of hype (and perhaps deserved,
but I haven’t seen it yet) about a series called Sherlock. No, this is not
connected, so don’t get it confused ^^

This film shows us another classic and capturing battle
versus Sherlock and Moriarity. It begins with murders, terrorist attacks and
many other things Sherlock has pieced together to be related to Moriarity. He
wants to put an end to this, and asks his assistant, Dr. Watson to help. He
refuses, because he is getting married the next day. The case brings the face
to face with Moriarity, encountering gypsies and assassinations and of course,
outrageous disguises.
 
This film also uses flashes of what will happen in Sherlock’s
mind for a fight. At first, I thought it was a little bit weird, and I wasn’t
sure I liked it. But then, I decided it was genius. It showed how his mind ran
through everything he would have to do before he did it in a few seconds flat.
There was also the little flashes of the necessary clues that Sherlock picked
up on to help solve the cases. But the best thing about the awesome filming was
the slow motion scene. There was one in a forest, with a lot of gun shooting
going on. I loved the effect of the slow motion, and it showed details you’d
have missed otherwise. It would’ve great to see this in blu-ray, come to think
of it.

 
It’s a long film though, at two hours. Packed with
action, intelligence and of course, comedy, it’s a must-watch from me!
