Product description

Product Description

Guy Ritchie directs this double bill of action thrillers starring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law. 'Sherlock Holmes' (2009), based on a new story by producer Lionel Wigram using Arthur Conan Doyle's famous characters, follows Sherlock Holmes (Downey Jr) and his loyal assistant Dr Watson (Law) as they deal with a mysterious new nemesis: Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong), a cult leader and Satanist who harbours the most deadly of intentions. Abandoning the accepted portrayals of Holmes and Watson, as perfected by Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce in the films of the 1930s and '40s, Downey Jr's Holmes is a modern, bohemian man of action and intellect, while Law's Watson is no longer the bumbling fool of old, but a much sharper character with an eye for the ladies and a taste for gambling. In 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' (2011) the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead and Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan) pronounces suicide as the cause of death. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been murdered - and is soon untangling an international web of intrigue, in which all threads appear to lead to criminal mastermind Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris). The supporting cast includes Stephen Fry, Kelly Reilly, Geraldine James and Noomi Rapace.

The good news is that what I actually got in the Sherlock Holmes Collection [Blu-ray] was the Triple Play Editions of both films, including Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Version, in a cardboard sleeve. As this is (at time of writing) only a couple of pounds more expensive than the triple play version of A Game of Shadows on it's own.

However, the bad news is that the Digital Versions are Ultraviolet downloads. If you want to claim them you'll have to: Sign up for a Flixster Account, Install their downloader/player on your computer, install their app on your iOS or Android device and use that and only that to watch your films. The files have been locked against other players. If you want a digital version of these films, you'll have to use their platform.

Obviously, if you like the Flixster app/player, no problem. It downloaded the files and played them just fine. But as consumers who are willing to pay the asking price for legal copies of new films, we don't deserve to be taken advantage of. Which is how I see this. You when you buy a triple play bundle you don't get asked 'Do you want itunes downloads or Ultraviolet downloads?,' you just get what is in the bundle. So we as consumers, don't get a choice of how to watch the films we paid for, on the devices we paid for. Does that sound fair to you? Ironically, you can get exactly what you want, on the platform that you want, if you are happy to download it illegally, (which I'm not.)

Physical discs aren`t tied to a certain manufacturer's players (even if BD technology all gets licensed from Sony) and neither, I think, should digital versions of movies. It doesn't really matter whether one app is better or worse than another. People will have their preferences, and since they are paying, they should have a choice.

This is an excellent box set containing both of Director Guy Ritchie's take on the classic character of Sherlock Holmes created by Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle. The following is my reviews for both films starting logically with the first one.
My thoughts going into this film were this shouldn't work should it? An American playing one of the greatest fictional British characters in History, being directed by the man who brought us Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and (Cough) Revolver, Guy Ritchie.

To my pleasant surprise however Sherlock Holmes works as a truly entertaining film. Robert Downey Jnr takes the lead role as the eccentric genius Detective Sherlock Holmes. Accompanying him is his good friend John Watson played by a mostly dead pan Jude Law. Mark Strong is the villain of the story Lord Blackwood who seeks to rule the world through Fear and Black Magic.

This film is clever, action packed and very funny throughout. It is an unorthodox approach to the classic Sherlock Holmes character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but with a strong cast, good story and entertainment factor of ten out of ten and I highly recommend a viewing of this.
The second film `A Game of Shadows' follows on from the action packed first film with Holmes played by an excellent as always Robert Downey Jnr and his long suffering companion Watson played by a humorous and swave Jude Law.

The plot essentially begins with Holmes piecing together several terrorist attacks, murders and business acquisitions across the world which all have connections with a certain Professor James Moriaty played by Jared Harris. Next begins a chase across Europe to thwart Moriaty's evil plot to plunge the world into war and reap the profit's.

One of those really bad ideas that surprisingly turned out rather well, Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes doesn't entirely work but offers enough fun along the way for that not to matter that much. Feeling at times like one of producer Joe Silver's projects for his Dark Castle horror label before the budget escalated, it pits a two-fisted Holmes against a supernatural adversary who has risen from the grave (not the first project to have the idea: Holmes was due to take on Dracula in a rival project at Columbia, and it's perhaps not accidental that Mark Strong's Satanic villain is played as a cross between Dracula and Himmler). The emphasis is on action and comedy rather than sleuthing and intellect, but when a film includes a spectacular setpiece where a giant henchman destroys a shipyard and knocks down a ship (not a boat, a full-sized ship!) in an attempt to crush the world's greatest consulting detective it's hard to complain that you're not getting your money's worth. It's certainly no surprise that while the slew of Homes films over the past century have usually been reliable but modestly financially successful earners, this is the first to do real blockbuster business: it's a crowd-please and no mistake.

While it's good to see the trend of giving Watson his due as a man of action and intelligence continuing here, Holmes doesn't come over quite so well despite Robert Downey Jr's best efforts, the script generally limiting his deductive reasoning to evaluating the most effective way to beat an opponent (not entirely out of keeping with Doyle's stories) with too many of his other conclusions rather too elementary to convince us of his genius. Even a scene where he improvises one of his disguises from items he finds on the street doesn't work as well on screen as it probably did on paper.
