“Sherlock Holmes – A Game of Shadows” reviews appearing

Hmm...Steampunk.

Den of Geek are on the fence.

Empire really quite likes it.

Total Film even likes it (What gives?)

I’m probably going to see Guy Ritchie’s second, bro-tastic take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s master detective this weekend, as I remember really enjoying the first movie even though I can barely remember anything that happened in it (other than two-thirds of the running time seemingly being made up of slow-motion fighting).

Okay, it’s not as good as the current TV iteration, but then what could be?

Robert Downey Jnr is usually good value in whatever he’s appearing in and Jude Law is well…there (Which is nice).  I’m keen to see what Jared Harris does with the role of Moriarty, as any viewer of season one of “Fringe” will attest that he can do low-key villainy with no small degree of aplomb.

If those chaps are wearing steampunk goggles, I’m going to be at the cinema on opening weekend, let’s face it – I’m a simple soul.
