Customer Review

on 25 March 2014
ith Dr. John Watson about to marry and end their partnership, a disconsolate Sherlock Holmes occupies his time investigating the schemes of his archenemy, Professor James Moriarty.

However, when Moriarty warns that he considers the Watsons a legitimate target for his retaliation against the detective, Holmes must save them and get John involved in one last case.

To do so, they join the Roma lady Madam Simza Heron's quest to find her missing brother, Renee, who may be the key to defeating Moriarty.

Together, the trio find themselves involved in a dangerous international conspiracy led by the Napoleon of Crime in which the fate of all of Europe hangs in the balance....

If you are a fan of the first one, than have no fear, this pretty much carries the same narrative as the original, which is no bad thing.

Once again we get the delicious pairing of the leads, and they are clearly having a ball this time, as the swagger is certainly there.

Secondly, we have the same fluid style Ritchie gave us before, the thoughts of Holmes as he is going to attack an assailant, the slow motion scenes, and of course, those tremendous set pieces.

The set pieces are some of the best Ritchie has ever made, and the train and the running through the forest, are standouts.

Harris as Moriarty is almost Rickman like in his evil-ness, and fares well against the two leads.

All in all, it's on a par with the first movie, and this is a duo I would like to see again and again.

The end?
