MOVIE REVIEW: SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS (Guy Ritchie, 2011)

Before Zack Snyder, the master of style-over-substance was Guy Ritchie and he didn’t disappoint in this far superior sequel.

Robert Downey, Jr. (one of the most consistent actors of this generation) could play a bookshelf or a chair and still manage to shine in any scene. Jude Law helped create much-needed sexual tension/chemistry making the movie an enjoyable ride.

The only disappointment was Noomi Rapace who looked lost among the boys.

Still, this was one of those good popcorn movies better suited in the summer.

Rating: ★★★★☆
