Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)
Synopsis: Just when Sherlock Holmes thought he was the smartest—he was wrong. There is a brand new criminal at large-Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)-and he is as smart as Holmes. Being evil, together with a soulless persona, gives him quite an advantage over our witty hero. The Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, and it was thought to be of suicide. However, Sherlock Holmes thinks that it is murder—and the man behind it is no other than Professor Moriarty.

The movie Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is the second installment to the 2009 megahit starring Robert Downey Jr. as the new world’s top notch detective and Jude Law as his famous sidekick Dr. John Watson.
Few particulars are presently known about the continuation, though the first movie left plenty of hints as to the potential storyline. Without doubt Professor Moriarty will act as the primary villain this event around, though to what degree, is not presently known. The former movie did a little reinventing of the persona, making him a lot of an action champion than the traditional individual he’s been presented as. For those who have not read the books yet, Professor Moriarty is the enemy that downed Sherlock Holmes, only earlier Doyle resolved to bring his role back after a public cry over his celebrated character’s death.
Actors Robert Downey Jr, Rachel McAdams and Jude Law are altogether anticipated to come back for the sequel. Hearsays have passed around as to who will act as Moriarty, with the newest news that Daniel Day-Lewis will be bringing the role to life. But right now, it seems not yet true.
The books are to be enjoyed– especially Ritchie’s version of Sherlock Holmes. The end became a little too ‘action film’ and we may be a bit let down with how it amounted together, but the dynamics between Holmes and Watson will sure be a lot of fun. If they add in Moriarty, especially if Day-Lewis will play him, then this will be a more than great sequel.
