I said at the end of my review of the previous Sherlock Holmes film that if there were to ever be a sequel, I’d watch it. Well it turns out there was. So I did.
Let’s keep this short and sweet shall we?
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is very much a ’more of the same’ affair, except mostly sans Rachel McAdams. The action is again fast paced, as this time Holmes battles the brilliantly evil mathematician Professor Moriarty.
Holmes legendary deductive reasoning provides all the required excuses to lurch from one scene to another. Robert Downey Jr again mumbles his way through the entire film whilst his bromance with Watson once more provides much of the entertainment.
Is A Game of Shadows as good as the first? No, probably not. Is it enjoyable? Very much!
And yes, I would watch Sherlock Holmes 3…
