Film Review: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

I recently saw Kelly Reilly's recent released film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, where she reprises her Mary Morstan role (from the first Sherlock Holmes film) and once again, she co-starred with Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and Rachel McAdams.


Check out and read my review of this film below!

I recently saw Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (sequel to 2009's Sherlock Holmes <--- click the link to read my review!) and I must say, I loved and enjoyed watching it as much as I loved and enjoyed watching the first one. Great movie! It had all the action (plenty more in this sequel than the first), humor (mostly from Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes), fun and mysterious games between Holmes and Moriarty, great chemistry and banter between Holmes and Watson, slow-mo fight scenes, and more! This film was a lot more fun to watch too this time around. I've been waiting to see this sequel since I've heard of it being made. It was more than I expected and it didn't disappoint!

The awesome and very talented Robert Downey Jr. is back reprising his witty and very clever, genius hero Sherlock Holmes character. He was just fun and amazing to watch in this film, as usual. I love RDJ! He's such a great actor and one of those few who are just great at what they do no matter what role he plays, he's always good. Jude Law's back as well as Dr. John Watson along with two other familiar faces from the first film such as Rachel McAdams (who interestingly appeared in quite a small role, a lil' more than her supposedly brief cameo role for this film at the beginning, but her fate was left somewhat ambiguous...I wanted to see more of her though...still nice to see continuity and her) as Irene Adler and Kelly Reilly (even though she, again, didn't have a lot of screen time like the first movie, but unlike the first movie, she did appear a bit more in some important and interesting scenes and had more to do in this one. Not too mention, her character was pivotal and quite useful to Holmes and Watson towards the end...which had a very interesting twist to it) as Mary Morstan Watson, who played Law's character Watson's love interest in the first film. Their characters' wed in the second film with an interesting wedding scene where Watson, the groom and Holmes, the best man were not quite dressed up appropriately for the wedding, lol. Thankfully, the wedding ceremony took place without any odd incident for the newlyweds.
