DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Mystery - Like the first film, this is a more action oriented take on the classic detective character, but with the style and action more amped up this time. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law fans will continue to get their fill though Rachel McAdams only makes a very brief return. Some intense violence and some very brief gay references could be of concern to parents.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good ... the presence of a strong villain and the intriguing way in which he is used are two primary reasons why A Game of Shadows trumps Ritchie's earlier Sherlock Holmes. The 2009 movie offered fun with a lot of annoying distractions. This one reduces the irritants while maintaining a high enjoyability quotient.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good This is a modern action picture played in costume. I knew it would be. After "Sherlock Holmes" (2009) grossed something like half a billion dollars, this was no time to rethink the approach. What they have done, however, is add a degree of refinement and invention, and I enjoyed this one more than the earlier film.

USA Today Full Review
Average A game of chess between Holmes and Moriarty in which the two match wits is one of the better moments in a film that is filled with too many deviations and drunken detours. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is simultaneously brash and dull — hardly a combustible combination.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Sherlock Holmes(Robert Downey Jr.) has always been the smartest man in the room...until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective.

When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddiew Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder, a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by one Professor Moriarty.

Mixing business with pleasure, Holmes tracks the clues to an underground gentlemen's club, where he and his brother, Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) are toasting Dr. Watson on his last night of bachelorhood. It is there that Holmes encounters Sim (Noomi Rapace), a Gypsy fortune teller, who sees more than she is telling and whose unwitting involvement in the prince's murder makes her the killer's next target. Holmes barely manages to save her life and, in return, she reluctantly agrees to help him.

The investigation becomes ever more dangerous as it leads Holmes, Watson and Sim cross the continent, from England to France to Germany and finally to Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead as he spins a web of death and destruction, all part of a great plant that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.
