Review

Scott Donaldson says: "The not-so-Wholesome Holmes takes on the Mighty Moriarty in this, the superior sequel for our old friend Sherlock. The game between these two intellectual giants is played out across all Europe, taking in weddings, politics, gypsies, arms control, power structures,
and a fun-load of detecting as it goes.

Sharper in every way than the previous movie, and less smug, Game of Shadows also boasts a genuinely decent bad guy in the form of Jared Harris (Mad Men's Lane Pryce, amongst other things). It's a bit long, and a bit pleased with itself, and it's obviously all very silly and nothing like 'the real Sherlock Holmes', but it is nonetheless really quite enjoyable. A fair shout for any Friday night in.
