Movies: Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows
This movie, directed by Guy Ritchie (imdb.com), doesn´t have much to do with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's analytic detective stories. Instead the stylish flick delivers a contemporary action spectacle. It`s mainly a vehicle to cash on the still rising popularity from Robert Downey Jr. The Hollywood star did actually a good job and delivered the expected funny performance - Johnny Depp watch out.
The special effects team also was worth its money. The CGI-department created some appealing nostalgic views. I enjoyed especially the faked 19th century sceneries from London, Paris and Strasbourg and deluged a picturesque castle on a steep mountain wall out of which a waterfall is gushing.
Allowing my mind to retire for a while I found the film somewhat entertaining.
