Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and Jude Law returns as his friend and colleague, Dr. John Watson, in "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows." There is a new criminal mastermind at large-Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris)-and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may give him an advantage over the renowned detective. Holmes' investigation into Moriarty's plot becomes more dangerous as it leads him and Watson out of London to France, Germany and finally Switzerland. But the cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead, and moving perilously close to completing his ominous plan. If he succeeds, it will not only bring him immense wealth and power but alter the course of history.




  • 17.99 but i own it

    By Thailand-Amulets
    this movie still invites me to buy it for 17:99 but i already own it. Since El Capitan all movies in the store dont have a purchased symbol anymore and expect you to remember if you bought it already or not, or to accidentally buy it again. sneaky Apple - good movie but Apple isnt showing purchased items as purchased anymore in iTunes
  • Awesome

    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.
  • Best Guy Ritchie FIlm

    By DeminJanu
    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!
  • 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.
  • Elementary, Watson.

  • Holmes vs lame plot.

    By lonegull101
    Slow story, deluted plot which had more to do with the relationship of Holmes and Watson, with Moriarty a very minor sub-plot. Expected a mystery, with clever plot twists. This was lame!
  • Probably better than the first

    Though to be fair,both are great. Some of the most underrated movies of the last decade.
  • This movie is ok

  • 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.
