Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Movie Reviewed

Sherlock Holmes A Game of Shadows

It's not often that I force myself to go to a midnight showing of a film - so when/ I do, it had better be worth it... Rest assured Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows managed to out exceed every one of my expectations. This movie is as good, if not BETTER, than the original!

This is a story about cunning, mental agility, and intellectual prowess. We all know of the struggle between good and evil, light verse dark, and we had heard of Holmes verse Moriarty, Guy Ritchie ensures we will never forget the latter. The latest installment of this epic franchise will have you riveted to your seat and leave you wanting more.

As Moriarty's lust for power, control, and money in 1891 continues to escalate Sherlock Holmes is increasingly becoming a nuisance that Moriarty is determined to eradicate. We find that Sherlock has been watching very closely the news reports of the day and has found that they all lead to Moriarty. Sherlock is determined to bring down Moriarty's empire, and Moriarty is determined to kill Holmes. With the two powerhouses on a collision course their can't help but to be collateral damage. You will be kept guessing till the very end and then you will want to watch the film again.

Mr. Downey and Mr. Law - continue their amazing onscreen chemistry of the bickering best friends Holmes and Watson. Across the board the acting was FANTASTIC - what a cast and obviously a great director. Jared Harris deserves special commendation - his portrayal of the far too intelligent and over confident Moriarty with a dash of remorseless insanity was mind blowing. He was able to humanize the character one moment, but then repulse you in the very next scene - wow! Since we are on the topic of great performances, Robert Downey truly has a way to convey a world of emotions without a word. The scene on the boat for instance; he was able to display a true feeling of vulnerability tempered with a steeled resolve to overcome, sir you are AMAZING!

Do not walk - RUN to see this in theaters. The big screen plays a very significant role in this film. Whether is the massive explosions or the slow-motion scenes - you are hereby commanded to see this film multiple times in theater, then also purchase it on Blu-Ray when it comes out!

“Enter The Lion” by Michael P. Hodel and Sean M. Wright

Here is the latest featured review of a Sherlock Holmes Pastiche: "Enter The Lion" by Michael P. Hodel and Sean M. Wright.

Enter The Lion

Sherlock Holmes Pastiches and Reviews: 

"Enter The Lion" by Michael P. Hodel and Sean M. Wright.

Reviewed By Scott Harker

Publisher:  JM Dent & Sons, Copyright 1979, First British Hardback Edition.

"Enter The Lion, a Posthumous Memoir of Mycroft Holmes" is "written" by Mycroft Holmes towards the end of his life. Mycroft is, of course, Sherlock Holmes's older brother.

The adventure which Mycroft chronicles takes place in 1875. The story shows a young Sherlock Holmes at the beginning of his career, as well as, more athletic Mycroft.

The Story:  A group of Americans make a visit to the British Government at Whitehall, soon after one of the Americans is shot. With both the British government and crime involved, it is natural that Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes are enlisted to sort out the incidents.

But it is a dark and convoluted mystery they have been charged to unravel, one that involves spies and conspiracies, and a plot to overthrow the American Government and replace it with a renewed Confederacy as part of the British Empire.

We follow the Holmes Brothers as they travel through Victorian London sorting out clues and exchanging banter. Along they way, we meet a Sargent Lestrade and discover the initial events that create the famous animosity between Professor Moriarty and Sherlock Holmes.

Can Mycroft and Sherlock keep the British Government, now headed by Benjamin Disraeli, from succumbing to the temptation of returning America to British rule?

The Writing:  Micheal P. Hodel and Sean M. Wright have provided the reader with a well written and well plotted novel. This is in a way, an "historical novel," for many footnotes are provided that give substance to the fictional events.

And it is certainly fun to see a young Sherlock Holmes who is still learning the craft of detection. As well as a Mycroft that has not yet grown too corpulent to move through the story...

The Rating:  ... This novel has a rating of 4 "Pipes." The reader will enjoy the story as well as the interactions of the characters both fictional and those based on real people.

Dedicated to the World's First Consulting Detective:  Sherlock Holmes!
