It took a little too long for the movie to develop.

I laughed and was enthralled at different times in the movie. I even almost cried at one point but you'll have to go see if for yourself to figure out where....lol
I'll definitely go and see it again.

This movie will keep you at the edge of your seat and watching closely. I thought that the story was good and the special effects fantastic. A must see!

I was ready for the cinematography and quick edits, but I tend to be hesitant about sequels. Fear not: this sequel surpasses the original! Downey and Law are the new Sundance and Butch with clever banter, excellent action sequences and a seemingly deep understanding of each other's true character. Go, go, go, my friends, go see this film.

In every interview you hear, Robert Downey Jr (Sherlock Holmes) says they did more in this sequel, tried to make it bigger and better. They absolutely did. This movie is a rush from beginning to end.
The direction was fantastic, with a new spin on "Holmes-vision" that kept the trick but prevented it from getting stale. The visuals are, as with the first, stunning. The plot has twists and turns but nothing that leaves you confused at the end. It's definitely a film for teens and up, not for kids under 13.
Holmes and Watson are charming and eccentric as ever, and even Mary gets a change to prove she can run with the boys. The gypsy woman, Sim, is also a worthy companion for the duo as they fight to stop Moriarty's nefarious schemes.
Go see this movie. If you loved the first you'll love this one too.
