    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

    [youtube:3lp76u1s]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77UdYWDkgVE[/youtube:3lp76u1s]

    Just saw it, very enjoyable.

    There's alot I like about this movie. This film is beautiful, the colors and texture of everything really struck me in every frame. Acting is once again, superb. I really liked the villain, just his demeanor is so fun to watch. Action is on a bigger scale, larger guns, more complicated slow motion sequences mixed with very fast cuts.

    This movie definitely had a different flavor to it than the first. There's less sleuth-y murders and more outward assassinations, the villain is constantly accessible, it's not even close to scary and there's no magic at all!

    A few things I didn't like. The movie just had a very fast pace to it. I know that's Guy Ritchie's style but this movie seemed even faster than the last one. Bit too fast for me to really soak everything in.

    Also, it seemed to end very, abruptly? I guess I was expecting a longer movie with a more drawn-out ending. Again the film was just too fast. Perhaps if I see it again I'll catch more witty dialogue and Robert & Jude-ery.

    Overall I'd definitely recommend it.
    Have you guys seen this yet? Do you want to?

    Saw this 2 days ago, it was amazing. I loved the film and the action scenes, the slow mo combined with the super fast bits made the action for me.

    Although I wasn't a fan of the pace of the movie, seemed a bit too fast or whatever. Also I'm curious to know how he survived at the end.

    All in all, great and enjoyable movie.

    I absolutely loved this movie. I just love how different the characters are from each other, especially the contrast between Watson; collected, serious, and knows what he's doing, and Sherlock; a fucking nutjob. I do think the ending needs a bit of explanation, but overall I loved it.

    Saw this the day it came out. I thought it was even better than the second one. The action scenes were just amazing. I particularly liked the slow motion scenes and the part where the dude was running through the woods and his head was centered in the camera. Great special effects, perfect timing in humor, and a smart ending. Worth the watch.

    Btw, Lithium, you should get rid of that spoiler in your post.

    I really liked this part, saw the movie yesterday, it was pretty fun, I got lost a bit at some parts but I managed to get it, I guess it was because of the fast pace like other have mentioned. Recommend to watch this

    Thought this movie was great. It improved on the first, and the first was pretty damn good to start with. I liked how you didn't need to see the first movie in order to understand the second either. Also, like Pyro said, the cinematography when running through the woods was excellent.


    If you don't know the guy on the other side of the world, love him anyway because he's just like you. He has the same dreams, the same hopes and fears. It's one world, pal. We're all neighbors.
