Of all the Intricate Holmes Plots...

I've kept this on my quasi-monthly list to watch. The intrigue between Moriarity and Holmes, through deceit, chess, or chemistry. Tribute to Basil Rathbone...this works wonderfully in this day and age.

Much better then expected

Holmes meets his ultimate nemesis : Professor Moriarty, who becomes an arms (and bandages!) dealer and wants to stir up a war between France and Germany so he can start making some serious money. That's the plot in a nutshell but it's all more complicated then that ofcourse.

I was expecting another dumb blockbuster with lots of fighting and explosiosn and the first 15 minutes seem to confirm this but then the movie really takes in a rollercaster ride and moves at such an incredible pace it's difficult to keep up ! Highlights are the banter between Holmes and Watson, Stephe, Fry as MyCroft, incredible chases, gunfights including the incredible scene where Holmes and his gang gets almost blown to smithereens by German artilleryfire.

Director Guy Ritchie provides a perfect bland between action and smart dialogue and at the same indulges in his obsession for firearms (the sniper!).

Add the high production values and the perfect recreation of 1891 and you got a real winner !

Mediocre sequel

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law return as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in the sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. While I still maintain that the films would have been more enjoyable if the casting were reversed, the way each character is written is cemented even further in this second installment. Robert Downey Jr. is the eccentric detective, and Jude Law is the boring, superfluous straight man who's consistently annoyed by his partner's antics. The setting for this film is Jude Law's wedding to Kelly Reilly. In the art of storytelling, when a character is married the audience is usually supposed to see that his or her journey is complete and their usefulness to the plot is over. So, Jude Law's character is viewed as even more boring and superfluous!

As Jude and Kelly are supposed to be enjoying their honeymoon, the famed villain Moriarty, played by Jared Harris, attacks, leaving Bob to save the day, and leaving Jude to continuously complain that he'd rather be enjoying his wife than fighting bad guys. Still, if you liked the first film, Sherlock Holmes, you'll probably like the sequel. The action-comedies are pretty similar, and director Guy Ritchie returns with his slow-motion action scenes. These aren't my favorite Sherlock Holmes films, but they're not terrible either. I just would have preferred Jude Law as the lead.
