It's an average action movie, superficial in the characterisation of most actors, prone to violence as the deus ex machina, with no intention whatsoever to resemble the methods of the arch-famous detective. That being said Robert Downey Junior does well his "I seem selfish and detached, but deep down I care for everybody" role, similar to who he portrays in Iron Man if you think about it.

Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) & Jude Law (Enemy at the Gates) reprise their roles as Shrlock Holmes & Dr. John Watson in this mind twisting seuqel. In this outing Sherlock & Watson must overcome their differences once more & work togher in order to save the World from Professor James Moriarty's scheme to create a World conflict.

Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler from the first Sherlock Holmes gives an early cameo only, shame, as we are presented with some new friends & foes. For the first time Homles brother Mycroft appears, deliciously played in his Fable 3 style by Stephen Fry (Blackadder Goes Forth) & Noomi Rapace hot off the back of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo appears as the main female lead Madam Simza, inplace of McAdams. Meanwhile on the enemy front we have a first & possible last outing ? for Professor James Moriarty , played by Jared Harris(son of the late Richard Harris), best known to me as David Robert Jones from Fringe, who's smug intellectual acting style, he seems to be stero typed into playing these roles. But i guess as Mark Strong finds out, once your cast in a paticular role & do well at it, you cant seem to get away from it.

Overall, i found this Shrolock Holmes seuqel, once again directed by Guy Ritchie (Lock Stock ), to be just as appealing & interesting as the first. Again like the original, this will be a film that you will have to watch a couple of times to take eveything in, as there is so much going on it's hard to process it all in one sitting. The traits & touches re-appear, with the slow downed fighting sequences with Holmes commentary, Downey Jr. in various disguises, beautiful Victorian settings, some very captivating slow motion effects & Holmes does Jackie Chan proud with some neat fast paced Jackie Chan-esque action sequences.

So as we deduce, the leads were solid as ever, the chemistry/spark between Downey Jr. & Law was still there, which gave the film that enjoyable feeling of re-visiting a couple of old friends in their love/hate relationship. And the majority of the newcomers were great support, although, i have to say that Noomi Rapace who is an unkown quantity to me, seemed to be underused. Her character wasnt as interesting or have as many lines as Rachel McAdams with Irene Adler in the first film & she seemed to be eating more than acting which would back this theory up. Watch out for Downey Jr. looking like the Joker from Batman The Dark Knight, intentional or not.

Upon final deduction, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is as enjoyable as the original Sherlock Holmes movie. Even though it goes for a more action heavy story, it comes togher to create a good piece of popcorn cinema. Reccomended.
