New ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’ Movie Delivered Lots Of Action,Drama & Extreme Boredom
New ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’ movie delivered lots of action,drama & extreme boredom. Warner Bros. Pictures released their new action/mystery flick “Sherlock Holmes 2: Game Of Shadows” into theaters this weekend. I just got done checking it out,and I gotta say, I’ve never seen a movie filled with so much action and drama,be so extremely boring at the same time.
I must have dozed off more than a dozen times,watching this thing. I also dozed off,during the first Sherlock film. These Sherlock Holmes movies just don’t do it for me. It stars: Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Noomi Rapace, Jared Harris, Eddie Marsan, Stephen Fry,and Rachel McAdams.
The new flick featured a new criminal mastermind at large,named Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) ,and he was Holmes intellectual equal. However,his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, gave him a bit of an advantage over Holmes.
The Crown Prince of Austria,all of a sudden is found dead. The evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade,pointed to suicide,but Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince was a victim of murder,a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by Professor Moriarty. Moriarty always seemed to be one step ahead of Holmes as he spun a web of death and destruction,which was all part of a bigger plan that could’ve changed history.
Sherlock and Watson teamed up,again,to get in a whole heap of trouble that included, gun fights on a train,a bomb blowing a train in half,Holmes getting in major fights,and more. It definitely featured a lot more action than the first one,but I just could not get into this film.
The dialogue scenes and characters just didn’t interest me at all,so I didn’t really care what happen to any of these people when the action went down. I find the characters in this film to just be so dull and uninteresting. I would’ve walked out if I didn’t have to review the damn thing. I’m sure there are probably many people who like Sherlock Holmes,but it is definitely not my cup of tea.
I knew I shouldn’t have gone to see it after seeing how boring the first one was. I definitely will not go see a 3rd one if they ever make it.Ugh. I gave it a bad C- grade. Any movie that causes me to doze off that much,is going to get a bad grade,because I can usually get into most movies,even some cheesy ones.
I genuinely try to get into every movie I watch,but this one had me sleeping like a baby.I look forward to seeing Robert Downey Jr. in Ironman and the Avengers,but not this Sherlock Holmes crap. Ugh. The best part about Sherlock,was the ending credits. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
