The game is afoot once more! Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law reprise their roles as Holmes and Watson in the supersleuth sequel to the mystery megahit that minted over a half billion dollars worldwide. While vying with Watson's soon-to-be wife for the Doctor's time and attention, the detective extraordinaire matches wits with his arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty (Mad Men's Jared Harris), a criminal genius who's conspiring to make a fortune by manufacturing the next generation of wartime weaponry that the world's great powers will be forced to use against one another... once Moriarty succeeds in provoking World War I, of course. Joining the dynamic duo on their adventure is a feisty gypsy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Noomi Rapace) and Sherlock's craftier but crazier older brother Mycroft (Stephen Fry).

    If a movie has Jude Law in it, I’m watching it. And this wasn’t a disappointment it was clever and very enjoyable 🙌

  • Best Guy Ritchie FIlm

    Having gone on a bit of a bing-watch of Guy Ritchie films, this was by far one of my favourites. Highly intellectual, dazzling and original use of interesting effects (especially in terms of slow-motion, as in previous films), and far less offensive than other films. I would say this surpassed the first film, and even Snatch and Lock Stock. It seemed as though this film brought all those skills together fantastically, as the characters and folk-lore of Shelock Holmes were especially well tuned to Guy Ritchie's story telling style. I highly recommend it!
  • Elementary, Watson.

  • This movie is simply amazing

    I have read all the books about Holmes and saw many Holmes movies. But this one stands out. It managed to capture the three essential elements of Sherlock Holmes saga, which are Watson, London and Language. There are many good Holmeses. And Robert Downey is good, but he is not what makes this movie great. Watson is simply best, not contest. England is shown and sounds perfectly. You have to be brain damaged like Rotten Tomatoes not to like it.
  • Brilliantly funny and clever

    Robert Downey Jr displays his craft for quick wit and facial expressions so that we catch his thoughts as the genius Sherlock Holmes. What a joy. Jude Law steps up as sidekick, Dr. Watson. He is by far, the best Watson b/c of all the trades & tricks he has mastered as a military and medical man. Pair the two together and we have a recipe leaving viewers wanting more.

    My step-dad owns both, when I first was gonna watch it, i thought it would be dumb and boring. But I was young, but after realizing Robert Downey Jr. Was in it, my hopes went up, then after watching it I had a huge smile on my face and ever since I've been watching these movies. It is very great, the acting is incredible, the plot is awesome! I don't know what's bad about it.
