Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows

Movie:  Sherlock Holmes:  Game of Shadows
Like/Don't Like:  Like.  Yes, I remember that I liked it.

Who's with me that the world has been given a gift in a clean and sober Robert Downey Jr.?  I feel like ever since he's cleaned up his act he's become a national treasure.  Okay, so that's a stretch, but I really like him in everything he does.  It's not like he's blessed with much of a range (he basically plays the same character in all of his movies) but he's fun to watch.  And I've grown accustomed to Jude Law.  And I like Sherlock Holmes in general, so this movie was a no brainer.  The perfect Christmas break movie.

That being said, it's been a week since I've seen it and it has almost completely left my brain and the only thing that remains of it is the vague sense that I liked it.  I liked that Moriarty was there and I thought their meet ups were clever.  There were some very funny moments.  And it moved along nicely.  And while I'm not that much of a fan of gratuitous special effects, the slow motion stuff was pretty cool, even though I was over it long before it finished. I did have to cover my eyes a number of times because I'm a delicate flower and don't go in much for punching and shooting and stuff like that.  But overall, it was fun.

I just saw it, too, and I liked it, too. And I tired of the slo mo, but have come to expect it in action movies. And I agree that RD, Jr is awesome in his sobriety. Although, I LOVE him in Heart and Souls, and I'm pretty sure he made that in his dark days.

I have seen this movie last year I really like it very much. I am big fan of detective movies, stories, etc...Acting of all the character is really good as well as naturally.
