WRITING UNIT 8- REVIEW ABOUT A FILM
I would highly recommend the film ‘Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows’ produced in 2011; it is the sequel of ‘Sherlock Holmes’ produced in 2009. Loosely based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s short story ‘’The Final Problem’,it stars Robert Downey as Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law as Watson. The director of the film is Guy Ritchie, well known for his highly successful films such as gyyg and hkbkgb.
The film is about the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his helper Watson as they confront their old enemy Professor Moriarty. It is full of fights and chases and has won an award for the best action/adventure film.
One of the things that I liked most about the film was the soundtrack; it was very similar to the previous film which was nominated for Best Original Score. The designs of the setting of the scenes in London were particularly evocative of Victorian London, creating a realistic atmosphere. The dialogue was very humorous and I loved the interplay between Sherlock and Watson, as Sherlock tries to prevent Watson not to get married. I loved the ending; it was very unexpected and funny.
In conclusion, the film was great at all levels; the music score,the dialogue, the costumes, the scenes, the action and the stunts. The last scene hints that Sherlock is not in fact dead, and leaves room for a third film.
I hope it comes soon.
