I often get a bit of a bee in my bonnet when overseas (usually American) acting stock lands quintessentially British roles. Renee Zellweger in Bridget Jones, Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins and Kevin Kline in, er, loadsa stuff leap to mind. (I exclude Johnny Depp from this list, because (a) I love him and (b) because he's played so many Englishmen he must be due an honorary accolade.)

Not that there was anything wrong with their performances, but I always think giving a British part to a non-British actor seems a bit fatuous. (This is not due to any kind of latent xenophobia; rather, it's more about accents. This makes the converse true - I don't really like it when British actors play Americans - I always feel our US cousins seem to get our accents better than we do theirs.)

Robert Downey Jr in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes movies (please GOD let it become a trilogy!) completely undid my preconception in a little over 2 hours. He was absolutely born to play Conan Doyle's legendary detective on the big screen, and I cannot think of any other actor alive whom I believe could do it the same justice. Moreover, his accent is impeccable.

Up until the SH series I had thought Guy Ritchie was a bit of a one-trick pony. I enjoyed 'Snatch' and 'Lock, Stock...' but think I was Cockney-gangstered out by the end of them. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows nails it all - strong script, distinctive characters, blistering slo-mo action scenes, a ripping yarn and a thick atmosphere of 19th century unrest. GR hasn't jettisoned the geezering entirely; rather, the character of Sherlock Holmes and the Victorian London backdrop has legitimised his trademark gangsterising and allowed him to flex his credentials in a historical setting.

The new take on the classic character of Sherlock Holmes from two years ago proved to be quite divisive. Some fans of the original stories hated how much the character had changed. Personally, I knew he was very different, but I loved the movie anyway. So I was looking forward to Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

As Dr. Watson (Jude Law) prepares for his wedding, Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey, Jr.) has become obsessed with figuring out what Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) is up to so he can stop him. This obsession leads him to almost botch Watson's stage night.

But when Moriarty turns things person for both men, they must reteam to figure out his end game and find a way to stop him. As they follow the trail all overEurope, can they do it?

So those who complained about the first movie will pretty much find the same things here. The movie is as much about the action scenes as it is the mystery, and it takes the same liberties with the characters. Since I'm not attached to the cannon versions, I don't mind these changes in the slightest.

They seem to have upped the comedy factor this time around. The friends I saw it with and I were laughing so hard at various parts of the film. Yes, there were the more serious moments, and the movie certainly earns it's PG-13 rating from the violence, but it's a lot of fun along the way.

As a mystery, the plot is weaker than it could have been. As one friend pointed out, the story feels unfocused for much of the first half. The movie is still entertaining, but it's not really until the second half that it appears we're actually going somewhere with all the action.

Watched this last night and although I enjoyed it and it is in no way a bad film, I found that Guy has this time gone all out with the special effects, photography and action but forgotten one fairly important ingredient - a good story!! The plot was very thin and only served as a backing for the action. I also found the slo-mo a bit tiresome after a while, even though it was well done. Still prefer the first movie and hope that if he does a third one he cuts out some of the flashy photography and brings back a bit more in the way of a story. Enjoyable but could have been so much better IMHO.

Sequels should be bigger and better without losing what made the original a success. If that is the basic framework a sequel should take then Sherlock Holmes A Game Of Shadows has it buttoned down to a tee.

More action and a better story help to elevate this particular adventure above most others, however with the inclusion of Sherlock's most famous foe, Moriarty, even the fans can rejoice. By now both Jude Law's and Robert Downey Jnr's easy going relationship is so effortless you would think this was all real. Their banter has a boyish charm to it and the film excels when they are both on screen together.

The action is better and bolder than before. The now trademark use of slow-mo to map out the following fight is used to much better effect here. Rather than distracting it actually elicits an excitement missing from most action blockbusters these days.

Well paced and exciting at every turn, Game of Shadows is a must watch for any discernible fan and an entertaining blockbuster for everyone else.
