With Wit, Reviewed By Kimmo Mustonenen
Okay, Hollywood, I give.
It is FUN to see great literary figure turned into 19th century James Bond.
There must always be explosions.
CGI must be in every movie ever made.
For the rest of the film career of reviewing I shall just suck on my bong and sit through whatever I’m being paid to sit through.
And LIKE it.
No… LOVE it.
So, for the second time staged a witty director Guy Ritchie crime adventure with invented by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s master detective Sherlock Holmes, a classic figure of English literature (that is not in this movie. Same name. Definitely not same guy.).
As in the first film from the year 2009 the script the action transferred to the Victorian era, which also comes from Doyle’s character. The men of the friendship of Robert Downey, Jr. played Holmes and his assistants presented by Dr. John Watson Jude Law delighted with lively war of words.
This time, the detective met his equal intellectually nemesis, Professor James Moriarty (also a name that appears in the Doyle stories, not so much the character), who is about to incite a world war and to seize the most important industries of Europeunder the nail.
The freaking nail!!!
To put the criminal played by Jared Harris, in the shaft, Holmes and Watson travel to Paris, Germany and Switzerland, as if they were secret agents of later generations of film (Bond, Bourne, whoever the closeted Cruise plays in MI: Whatever).
They fight often in the literal sense before picturesque scenery, in a gentleman’s club, a train, in the Paris Opera House, a posh hotel and a Swiss mountain chateau, a munitions factory and on the backs of horses.
Son of a bitch!
Doyle’s master detective was originally in the struggle with Moriarty in Switzerland – fall down the Reichenbach Falls, in death, before he then reanimated again for more adventures.
It takes the action back here and puts on an impressive waterfall, a CGI castle in ludicrous steep hillside (maybe the same town as “Immortals” 2,000 years later). There sits a peace conference, which Moriarty wants to make the starting point of World War II.
Or I – I was pretty high.
While Watson and the belligerent gypsy Sim, played by Naomi Rapace (Dragon Tattoo chick – For The Win!), inside Europe are trying to save to provide themselves Holmes and Moriarty at the balcony of a game of chess on the board and as spirited debate about the case.
There was a plot, but that is unimportant.
Robert Downey, Jr. has mister fun good times.
The women were hot.
You saw SH#1 and liked it? This is also for your liking.
I suggest using a bong – with and Indica blend because that will make you like an idiot drool.
And being an idiot with drool is the only way to see this.
“Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows” has made me see the light. The light of my lighter as I take another major hit.
Hollywood is awesome.
Light up and pass the cheetos.

P.S. Ryan Murphy, thank you for a taste of Lindsay Pearce in “Glee.” I know now that you are listening! Two more Lindsay episodes – then we can be friends!
