Was very disappointed, pre-view looked enticing. Too much action which was in your face & too quick, sometimes less is more. Love the two actors together they have good chemistry.
The actors are great together, love both of them. The costumes, sets, scenery all awesome. But something was missing and I too kept falling asleep. Didn't bother to rewind what I missed. It's either a case of trying too hard, or there are no surprises left with the story lines. If you do like Sherlock Holmes I thoroughly recommend the British TV series 'Sherlock'. Set in modern day with the themes of old. Great new twist on a little bit of a tiring theme.
Took 3 attempts to get through it...kept falling asleep! Awful, disjointed, boring, pointless. Pity really...enjoyed the first one, but this suffers from "trying too hard!
We have a [pleasant] surfeit of Holmesian adventures right now what with Benedict Cumberbatch and [now] Jonny Lee Miller [both on TV]. I just wonder if Basil Rathbone didn't cap them all!
this film was full of fun action Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr are fantastic together I hope they make some more.
Didn't like, had seen on TV and didn't like it then either.
This had such an effect on me I can't even remember what it was about. Boring!!
Great film with attention to detail. The two stars seem to play off each other that made it natural.
just average. watch it if you are really bored. it might put you to sleep. disappointed.
Loved the first one, this one is ok.
Enjoyed the first one and enjoyed this one as well.
was more about the special effects than the story. Not as good as the first one
Great movie. The first one was good, this one is better. Watch the special features if you like it as well.
This film is a victory of style over substance. A wafer thin story line loosely connects two hours' worth of action sequences and special effects while R D Jnr, as the quirky Mr. Holmes, is more plonker than enigma.
Enjoyed the first one a litte more, but this one was still a good follow up. Really loved all the slow motion shots laced throughout. Not as witty as the first maybe, but still enjoyable. Just love Robert Downey Jr, he's the best!
Robert Downey Jr is no Benedict Cumberbatch. Just a tacky & violent American attempt at something that is not only British but should stay British. And I'm not even British!
Fabulous film, very elaborately plotted like the first. Some of the best cinematography and special effects I've seen so amazingly put together in more recent years. Also, I really liked Noomi Rapace in the role of the gypsy. This movie escapism is top entertainment.
Loved this movie. Love Robert Downey Jnr
I was eagerly waiting for this one and it didn't disappoint as Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are brilliant , now if only they'll make a third installment.
Absolutely awful. I like Robert Downy Jr. as Tony Stark, he plays the part well, but he is not cut out to play Sherlock Holmes. But even worse than his portrait of Holms, is the script, or lack of.
I have to confess that I have never really been a fan of Sherlock Holmes, but thought as this was on at the movies, it may have been OK. How wrong can you be, very confusing, very thin storyline, far too drawn out, no depth in the characters, no chemistry between actors, in fact a total waste of time.
Not really familiar with the characters or storylines... Only watched it for Noomi Rapace. Loved her in "Dragon Tattoo:.
Felt let down after enjoying the first one. Far too slow with just visuals happening, then far too much long drawn out monologue. They loose their effect after a while and just become boring. Gypsies totally unconvincing as was Moriarty. It seems that once was interesting but twice was boring with this franchise.
Great movie. Robert Downey Jr is brilliant in the role. Better than the first one.
Great movie, hope they make another.
Great movie, enjoyed it tremendously. Good action. Robert Downey Jr is a brilliant actor.
Loved the movie - great cast and well scripted. Fun to watch
I've not yet seen the first movie so this was the first time I have seen Robert Downey Jr. in the role and WOW -- the costumers and makeup artists are to be congratulated on their efforts in the film. Huge kudos to the cinematographers whose blend of effects make the film all the more exciting! The soundtrack too does it's job and assists in making your heart race! I am now looking forward to seeing the first movie. LOVED the ending!
Ho hum...all that stop motion BS with bullets and fight plans...convoluted and silly....not really for adults...more a teenage boy thing (in my opinion) I did like the urban camoufflage though!
Still a good movie but struggled to get into this one like I did the first. Enjoyable but not as much chemistry or laughs.
Not as good as the first one , I don't like all the silly action stuff.
Longer than it needed to be. Over-directed. No chemistry between Holmes and Watson. Moriati lacked motive. Ideas from the first movie over done in this one. Ending unclear. Stephen Fry took his clothes off...
Did not enjoy as much as the first one. Still a good watch.
So much better than the first movie - richer, more eccentric, more suspense, smarter. Pay attention though ! It's a Sherlock Holmes movie after all. Guy Ritchie, Jude Law and above all Robert Downey Jr were born to do this.
Great movie and I enjoyed it nearly as much as the first and that was excellent. Still hard to follow the conversations at times as Robert Downey Jr speakes so fast but I still managed to follow the plot.
was awesome! waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the first! i really enjoyed this one
Not as good as the first. Lacks clarity in plot. Too many fight scenes, which the director seems obsessed with. Very well filmed. Great effects.
An entertaining film with good acting again by the principals but also instantly forgotten like the first one, popcorn fun only.
I found this movie to be very entertaining with great acting, just a pleasure all up!
Bad plot with little resemblance to anything written by Conan Doyle. CGI-intensive drivel suitable for 12 year olds
Not as good as the previous one but still great entertainment.
Disappointing after having loved the first one. This is a bit all over the shop, and Noomi Rapace is a charmless, poor substitue for the lovely Rachel McAdams in the role of femme fatale. The witty rapport between Holmes and Watson is present but Downey Jr goes a bit overboard this time, verging dangerously a caricature that Jim Carrey would be proud of. Also lacks a decent villain, and tries to make up for it by having our heroes globetrot so much you'll lose track of where the hell they are.
Love Robert Downey in these movies.
Great movie. Love the dog.
Just as good, if not better, then the first one
Better that the first effort. The characters are starting to gel. Looking forward to the next one.
I agree with Steve below. Horrible movie. Beyond stupid. We stopped watching after 45 minutes. What a waste of talent and money.
great movie,love Robert Downey Jnr
not as good as the first one but still good
very good movie. I always like Robert Downey jnr. Bit slow to start, but gets into the action
Slow to start but a story with lots of twists and turns and well worth watching.
A lazy, boorish attempt at film making, I found this movie almost unwatchable. As a fan of Sherlock Holmes since my childhood, Ritchie's crass 'Hollywood-isation' of the character showed contempt for the intellectual rigour of the character and a disdainful disinterest in any attempt to capture a genuine portrait of the era. London in the 19th century has been reduced to merely a trite American theme park of Yankee accents and flagrant sexual innuendo. Utter rubbish.
Not nearly as much fun as the previous one. Despite all the action I was bored for the last half.
Great movie, action,witty and explosive worth the watch, loved it.
I'm not sure I agree with the two reviewers below me -- this one felt a bit disjointed and not nearly as clever as the first. It could be I'm just overawed by Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock on TV, but Downey's Sherlock just seems a little... dumb? If you haven't seen the TV series, definitely grab that instead of this movie. Otherwise, enjoy the explosions...
Terrific, I would say it is even better than the first one.
Excellent movie equally as good as the first one.
