Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Irene Adler is killed by Moriarty after having failed to deliver a letter that Holmes had intercepted. Holmes, investigating apparently unrelated crimes commited by Moriarty's gang, meets Simza, the recipient of the letter, at Watson's bachelor party, and prevents her assassination. After Watson's wedding, Holmes meets Moriarty, and the latter threatens to kill the young couple if Holmes continues interfering in his business. Watson and Holmes follow Simza to Paris, looking for her brother Rene, sender of the letter. They discover that the anarchist group to which Rene used to belong had been forced to place bombs for Moriarty. Holmes incorrectly deduces the presence of a bomb at the Opera, while it was actually at an hotel, where the explosion was meant to cover the assassination of Alfred Meinhard by a sniper. Ther latter's death grants Moriarty ownership of Meinhard's arms factory in Germany. Holmes and his companions travel there following clues in Rene's letter. Holmes, captured and tortured by Moriarty, describes his plot to start a war in Europe after becoming the owner of various industries that would become very profitable in a war. Watson frees Holmes and they then traver to the peace conference in Reichenbach, Switzerland, the logical place where an assassination by Moriarty would start a war. Simza and Watson manage to identify Rene, disguised as one of the ambassadors and prevent the assassination, while Holmes fights Moriarty on a balcony. Holmes, injured, cannot win the fight, so he decides to throw himself and his opponent into the waterfall below. In the end, Holmes is presumed dead, but Watson receives a parcel that indicates he is actually still alive.
