Movie Reviews: The Devil's Advocate + A Game Of Shadows

The Devil's Advocate (1997)

Kevin, an annoying lawyer goes to work for an NY law firm run by large ham John Milton (Al Pacino). He defends a perv murderer, ignores his wife who goes mad and kills herself and becomes more and more annoying and shouty. Way, way too late he figures out that his boss is satan. Cue hysteria, OTT ranting, OTT nudity, OTT cgi and overdone hysterical cheese. This is BAD.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)

Sherlock Holmes faces his greatest enemy. No, not Mary Watson but Professor Moriarty. The pineapple faced ratty toothed Moriarty and his sidekick Colonel Moran are up to something and Holmes must foil them. But can he?

Watson hangs around, being outraged, wrestling with Holmes, getting drunk, getting married and dancing with Holmes. This is very entertaining. Stephen Fry annoys as Mycroft Holmes but the final confronation at a waterfall is very intense. Now how about a 3rd film?
