The supporting cast includes Stephen Fry, Kelly Reilly, Geraldine James and Noomi Rapace.

Synopsis
Brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) matches wits with the nefarious Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) after uncovering a diabolical plot to destabilize the entire Western world in this sequel from director Guy Ritchie. A criminal mastermind without a conscience, Professor Moriarty is Holmes' worst nightmare -- a man who uses his incredible intellect for unspeakably evil purposes. When the Crown Prince of Austria dies and Inspector Lestrade (Eddie Marsan) rules the death a suicide, Holmes steps back to see the big picture. But little does Holmes realize that Professor Moriarty is about to commit a crime that will shock the entire world, and that solving it may be the death of him. Jude Law returns as Holmes' faithful sidekick Dr. Watson in a sequel also featuring THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO's Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams.

Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's Downey's movie. With his cool, flippant manner, his Holmes stands apart from the danger, thinking it through visually before performing it, remaining insouciant in the face of calamity."
Roger Ebert (14 Dec 2011, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Director Guy Ritchie loves whooshy, rapid-fire speed shifts, and uses them for hypnotic sequences..."
Owen Gleiberman (6 Jan 2012, )
Los Angeles Times
"Law's down-to-earth and slightly fussy Watson proves once again to be the right counterweight to Downey's flighty, fidgety, flinty Holmes....Downey has made this sly sardonic Sherlock stylistically all his own."
Betsy Sharkey (16 Dec 2011, )
Movieline
"The play between wild-eyed Downey and the serenely unsettling Harris crackles with a chemistry befitting Doyle’s iconic literary nemeses as Moriarty stays coolly one step ahead of our hero..."
Movieline Critic (15 Dec 2011, )
Sight and Sound
"Ritchie comes up with breathtaking moments....A GAME OF SHADOWS is lively and diverting..."
Kim Newman (1 Feb 2012, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "HOLMES 2 is an improvement on its predecessor....In the action department, it scores a bullseye..."
Neil Smith (1 Feb 2012, )
