Watch sherlock holmes a game of shadows 2011 online free. There is a new criminal mastermind at large–Professor Moriarty–and not only is he Holmes’ intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil and lack of conscience may give him an advantage over the detective.
The film opens with an emergency that threatens to rock Holmes’ world: Dr. Watson (Jude Law) is getting married. In the first film, we learned of his engagement to Mary Watson (Kelly Reilly), and now a date has been set for the poor girl. Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.), who considers himself every bit as much good company as the doctor could possibly require, deplores this development, and indeed even joins the blissful couple on their honeymoon train journey. At one point, he throws Mary off the train, but to be fair, it’s to save her life.
Film centers on a climax in the long-standing feud between Holmes and Professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris), who beneath his cover as an Oxford don, is the mastermind of an anarchist plot to use bombings and assassinations to push Europe into war. Moriarty would profit handsomely from that because he operates an enormous secret munitions factory, turning out everything from machine pistols to gigantic cannons. The lives of many European heads of state are threatened, and Holmes is the only hope to keep the peace.
It seems too large to be contained by the eccentric investigator of 221B Baker Street and Watson, his intimate. (I am using “intimate” as both a noun and an insinuation.) It’s more of a case for James Bond, and Moriarty’s grandiosity seems on a scale with a Bond villain. Guy Ritchie and his writers Michele and Kieran Mulroney, however, wisely devote some of their best scenes to one-on-ones between Holmes and Moriarty.
