STUDIO SYNOPSIS: Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) has always been the smartest man in the room... until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective. When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan), points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder—a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by Professor Moriarty. The cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead of Holmes as he spins a web of death and destruction—all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.

VISUAL REVIEW

Sherlock Holmes has always been the smartest man in the room...until now. There is a new criminal mastermind at large—Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris)—and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may give him an advantage over the renowned detective.


(iPad/iPhone here) The film is all about smoke and shadows literally. Things are not what they appear.


Jared Harris takes on the role of the man he describes as "arguably the first uber-villain in modern literature." He foreshadows the military complex and powerful multinational corporations of today's world.


Filmmaker Guy Ritchie returned to direct "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," the follow-up to "Sherlock Holmes." Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes" had redefined Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic character for a new generation.


Robert Downey Jr. reprises his role as the world's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, creating his own unique incarnation of the role.


Jude Law returns as Sherlock's friend and colleague and occasional foil, Dr. John Watson.


In her first English-speaking role, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) plays a mysterious Gypsy named Madam Simza, called Sim, who becomes allied with Holmes and Watson in their quest to stop Moriarty.


The Adler character puts a face to the age old question: "Why do we betray the ones we love?" Producer Susan Downey comments, "Irene is the only woman that's ever bested Holmes, the only one who gets under his skin. They have a very combustible relationship, of which Moriarty is well aware, and that proves dangerous to them both.""


(iPad/iPhone here) Irene delivers Sherlock into the hands of thugs. Relationships are always complicated. Why do we seem to hurt those we love the most?


Life is always more interesting when your friends are different from you.


(iPad/iPhone here) Friends! No matter how quirky the friend may be! The gift of friendship is priceless.


Dr. James Moriarty and Irene Adler find themselves committing self destructive acts. Why do we do what we do?


(iPad/iPhone here) Holmes asks Watson the Ultimate Human Question: Are You Happy?




(iPad/iPhone here) A friendship no matter what!


Production designer Sarah Greenwood: "One of the things that we only touched on in the previous film and wanted to expand on was the burgeoning of industry, which was affecting every echelon of society. The entire world was on the cusp of huge change."


Producer Lionel Wigram: "It was the beginning of the modern age, where we see the seeds of the military-industrial complex, with bigger and more powerful weapons and more efficient warfare."




Director Guy Ritchie: "I never want to repeat myself, so there's a variation to the Holmes-o-vision in this film. This time things don't necessarily play out exactly as Holmes envisions them, so he has to adjust his thinking."


Making the world a better place.
