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.

See, Hollywood?

You win.

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.

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.

Damn straight.

Enough already.

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.

    Unlike the first one this one is suppose to be good. Though getting a bong in the theater may prove difficult.

  2. Hollywood Producer on December 16, 2011 at 11:09 am said:

    Hopefully between Sherlock Holmes and Chipwrecked Hollywood should get back on track at the box office. I expect those two movies combined to do about $100 million. About $60 million for Sherlock Holmes and maybe around $40 million for Chipwrecked.

  3. vidar silent god on December 16, 2011 at 11:14 am said:

    I just don’t remember Sherlock Holmes books as being action adventures. Wasn’t solving the crimes through ingenuity and intelligence the great things about those books?

  4. Great review, Kimmo! I thought the first one was a lot of fun and I expect this one to be as well. Just the still photos of Robert Downey are hilarious. I hope it’s as funny as it looks. Though I’ve heard it’s really bloody.

  5. Jeff Hall on December 16, 2011 at 11:38 am said:

    I really enjoyed the first film. If nothing else it was a fun ride. I’m hoping for a nice 2 hour diversion with this as well.

  6. Jeremy Brett fan on December 16, 2011 at 11:46 am said:

    In my mind there will never be a better Holmes than Jeremy Brett. that guy was amazing and hardly the action hero type.

  7. Alvin Chipmunk on December 16, 2011 at 4:09 pm said:

    Sign me up for Chipwrecked. This one looks shite.

  8. Angeleno on December 16, 2011 at 6:54 pm said:

    Oh dear! I saw a screening last night. Wish I had read your review first and taken the required paraphernalia with me. As it was, I was very disappointed. I really liked the first one, found it clever and a really fun ride. I loved the sort of fast, clockwork precision of it and the attention to period detail. This one . . . not so much. This one has turned into just your mid-level action picture — do a lot of running around, shoot a lot of guns, and blow stuff up. It might as well be a Michael Bay picture. Very little wit, no charm, and a terrible waste of all the wonderful actors here, who could be so terrific in a better made picture — with the exception of Jared Harris, who makes a sensational Moriarty. Half the fun interaction between Holmes and Watson just gets lost in the surrounding chaos. Watching it, the word that kept coming to mind was ‘sloppy.’ And I thought the ending was a completely unearned cheat!

    Sorry to be so negative, but I really was disappointed.

  9. Hollywood Producer on December 16, 2011 at 7:56 pm said:

    Box office has not been saved. It’s looking like $40-45 million for the weekend. The first one opened at $62 million. And Chipwrecked may not do $30. Are movies in theaters in trouble?

  10. Rob Downey + Jude Law…what a great combo!! this duo should be fantastic, I’m sure!
