"HOLMES" COMES OUT OF THE SHADOWS,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows [DVD + UV Copy]  (DVD)
Unlike other reviewers who considered this movie a watered down version of the first i disagree.
Ritchie has set out in this sequel to expand and develop all the characters and spec effects and take them to another level.
In my opinion he has succeeded in all aspects and more....saw this movie on the big screen and absolutely loved it, the story in general sees Holmes locking swords and wits with his intellectual equal and surprisingly convincing Moriarty who unlike the villain from the last episode manages to be a convincing embodiment of evil as well as a genuine intellect with all the understandable neuroses this can create.
The effects are taken on a level although could be criticised as very similar to the last offering, however i must confess that the extra humour elements give the whole film a lift i found myself laughing out loud at times which is unusual for me.
If you loved the first film you should love this one....if you enjoyed the first film but though it lacked a little something then you will LOVE this one. I'd recommend this to all the family its got something for everyone...a purchase i will be making
