Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)



Sleuth Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson attempt to undermine the nefarious schemes of Professor James Moriarty.


A bit darker than the first Sherlock movie, but very enjoyable. However, it is a lot funnier in some ways too; Sherlock has a lot more silly humorous antics. You actually get to see Prof. Moriarty; in the first movie, his face was always shrouded in shadow. And Stephen Fry as Sherlock's brother Mycroft is very enjoyable and amusing, to me a welcome part of the cast. And Watson gets married, that's very sweet.
