Plot Outline:

Sherlock Holmes and Watson have seemingly met their match when the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead and they deduce it is a murder and not a suicide. The clues point to Professor Moriaty - a brilliant yet decidedly evil man. A gypsy who knows about the crime becomes a part of the team as Holmes goes on a cross-country chase to stop Moriaty. -- Chris Kavan

I'm always skeptical of sequels or a bunch of movies that follow the same plot line but this movie completely surprised me. Absolutely excellent in every version of the word "excellent." Robert Downey Jr. is such a good actor. Love him so much. Awesome!

Nice movie, like the humor and the action. Not to dificult and sometimes predictable. The only thing they can skip are the action scenes before the real action. This is a bit of 'matrix' action the movie can do without and gets boring after a while.

"Sherlock Holmes: Game Of Shadows" by Yojimbo

On the eve of his wedding day, Doctor Watson is persuaded by his erstwhile partner in crime to go head to head with arch nemesis Professor Moriarty in a game of international cat and mouse. The Victorian bromance continues as the bickering detectives cut a swathe across Europe in pursuit of the nefarious Moriarty leaving a trail of computer generated carnage in their wake. Subtlety certainly takes a back seat as Game Of Shadows follows the usual blockbuster sequel formula of dumber and louder=better, with the homo-eroticism of the first film in particular ramped up to Carry On proportions. Unlike the Indiana Jones vibe of the previous film, the plot here is very much a James Bond-style tale of espionage full of tommy guns, explosions, disguises and international intrigue and it's all very...

Game like a chess , one outplaying other

“What do you see?” I see everything. Sherlock Holmes the most famous detective of Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels is now back in action for the second time. Game of Shadows bestows the impeccable talent of Sherlock and his histrionics to make the viewers engage. He sees everything and he says that it’s his curse. We must remember that the previous movie gave insight into important characters. This one has stressed upon the arch nemesis of Sherlock, Professor Moriarty. Warner Bros and same production unit brings in the sequel.

The plot continues with the last frame shot of the previous where Holmes and Watson think about Moriarty. This one opens with an explosion and a bit later with Watson (Jude Law) typing the memories of Sherlock. With this we can glance that movie has opened a bit late....

A game of shadows - The end?

The plot takes part months after the first movie, where Dr. John Watson (Jude Law) is about to marry his fiancée Mary. Inspector Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) is to be his best man and throw his best friend and partner in solving crimes a stag party. Of course being Sherlock Holmes, he has other obsessions on his mind such as his arch nemesis the brilliant Dr Moriarty (played with fantastic intelligence and sinister intent by Jared Harris) whom Holmes believes is responsible for creating a chaos in Europe, and who, he later learns, wants to unleash a world war from which only he can benefit. I have to say that there is very little detecting in this one. Rather the film relies on breathtaking action and the unconventional friendship and banter between its two male leads. The bond bet...
