"Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" First Thoughts
Another "First Thoughts" so soon. I just did one last night. Anyway I celebrated Boxing day by going to see the Sherlock Holmes movie, and it was pretty good. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are great. But it did have it's problem, like Sherlock Holmes dies twice. He survives both through "Chekhov's Gun". Also I just didn't like Professor Moriarty. He was intended to be a genius and very cruel but he never came off like that. His actions felt like that but he himself didn't feel like a threat until the very end.
Also, what was the point of bringing back Rachel McAdams as Irene Adler just to kill her off in the first 10 to 20 minutes. If you couldn't write her into the story you should of just said she was in jail or something. But other then that I liked it. If you liked the first one, you should give this a try.
