The relationship between Holmes and Dr. Watson (Jude Law), which I found so annoying in the first film, is better delineated here, as one actually senses their mutual affection, even as Watson prepares to leave his adventurous friend behind to embark upon married life.
As for Ritchie’s trademark visual razzle-dazzle, some of it is impressive, and some of it becomes repetitive after a while. But if, like me, you know what you’re getting into—or, unlike me, enjoyed the first Holmes outing—I doubt you’ll be bored or dissatisfied. An elaborate production in every respect, A Game of Shadows definitely gives you your money’s worth.
