FILMCLUB DVD Film of The Week:

Sherlock Holmes – A Game of Shadows (2011, 12)


Director: Guy Ritchie

Cast: Jude Law, Robert Downey Jr., Rachel McAdams

The sharp and witty Victorian detectives return with the same combination of action, thrills and crime as before.

This time Holmes and Dr Watson are up against the best criminal mastermind in the world, the evil Professor James Moriarty. Their skills are stretched beyond London in a race to Moriarty who is creating mayhem across the world.

This is a brilliant action film with loads of amazing stunts, great camera work and funny one-liners too. If you were a fan of the first film then you will definitely enjoy this. However, if you like the Sherlock Holmes books you might find that this is quite different to how the author, Arthur Conan Doyle, originally wrote the characters. It’s up to you to decide whether that matters though…

This film contains mild scenes of danger.

Like this? Then also try these great films: Gaslight (1944, PG), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939, PG), The Maltese Falcon (1941, PG), The Pink Panther (1963, PG) Sherlock Holmes (2009, 12)
