Once bitten twice shy....It can never be as good as it already got. Somehow, the film has a lot of repetition in term of the "formatted" movie making that may/may not bore its audience and it is all depends on how you look at it. No doubt this sequel continues the lots of British's charm on how Sherlock Holmes' story being carried out despite many of them had been made in the past decades, we still find it quite entertaining and the never ending actions add on a little more excitement to it. Thanks to the new casts in this sequel where Stephen Fry's another Holmes' role did charm its audience and made the film funnier, ever. Noomi Rapace and Jared Harris' roles are acceptably well executed. Not a bad Christmas past time for a different genre. Should it be another sequel to anticipate? Perhaps we won't say no if another well written screen writes awaits.

Blancpain and Lamborghini first joined hands in 2009 to create an exceptional automobile championship. Super Trofeo is not only the first Lamborghini racing series, but has also become the world’s fastest and most demanding single-make championship. 30 gleaming Lamborghini Gallard cars – the latest version of this legendary model – face off on six equally fabled race tracks. Each of these speed machines bears the colours of Blancpain, while the car driven by Mr. Marc A. Hayek, President and CEO of Blancpain, is entirely dedicated to the brand. To celebrate these superlative races, the Manufacture in Le Brassus presented the Super Trofeo Flyback Chronograph, a resolutely sporting watch, in 2009, with a production run limited to 300. Since the Super Trofeo’s first race season in 2009, Blancpain and Lamborghini have organized the race for three years and it will continue in both Europe and Asia. In 2010, the L-EVOLUTION “Super Trofeo” Flyback Chronograph was launched to celebrate the glorified alliance of the two legends. The design of the titanium case specifically designed for the L-EVOLUTION “Super Trofeo” Flyback Chronograph is inspired by the sleek profile of the Lamborghini Gallardo. At this heart of this sophisticated and performance-oriented case is the throbbing “engine”, Calibre F185, which drives the watch to maintain extreme performance at all time. Featuring flyback chronograph function as well as 40 hours of power reserve, the movement powers a range of functions including hour, minute, small seconds and date display at 6 o’clock, as well as the chronograph indications with a central sweep seconds hand, 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock. The unmistakable black carbon fibre dial is distinguished by two red and white 9 and 12 o’clock numerals stylised to evoke the numbers painted on the 30 Lamborghini Gallardo race cars. With water resistance up to 100 m and a limited production of 600, the L-EVOLUTION “Super Trofeo” Flyback Chronograph is indeed a must-have for collectors, connoisseurs and supporters of the two brands.

Sunglasses and spectacles characterised by impeccable design, unpredictable colours and textured effects that establish them as contemporary classics, a perfect fusion of tradition and research.

The Chronostream inspiration is to be found in the sporting world and is designed for a young, dynamic and “sporty-chic” clientele. Its’ truly eye-catching dial conveys a streamline spirit and reminds us of the speedometer of a racing car. Indeed, the center of the dial proudly displays two subsidiary dials at 3 and 9 o’clock, themselves interconnected by an elegant “radiator-grille” that balances the whole design. The dial is also decorated by a refined sunray pattern that brings this additional touch of character as it further enhances the sense of speed and gives the impression of travelling across time.The Academia Chronostream houses a solid and reliable calibre and displays hours, minutes and seconds together with a chronograph function operated by two push buttons on the side of the case. The hours and minutes hands are open-worked and in the shape of two-edged swords. The seconds are displayed in a subsidiary dial at 9 o’clock. The chronograph’s main seconds hand, thin and elegant, is placed in the center and gracefully glides round the dial. The Academia Chronostream fully complies with very demanding finishing norms of the DeWitt Manufacture: satin-brushed surfaces, polishing and bevelling. The quality of the finishing can be observed through the sapphire crystal back, which also unveils a fine DeWitt rotor, designed in-house. Also, two miniature “W” signatures are to be found on the crown and on the golden buckle. Last but not least, just as any DeWitt watch, it is entirely assembled, adjusted and tested by a single master watchmaker, from A to Z.

It is stunning and it is exciting. Coming to the 4th now for it movie prequel/sequel, it has still not letting his fans down by far. Thanks to the change of the film directors for each film and add on the new elements and latest technology on each film, not forgetting the exotic locations. This time with one of the executive producer J.J. Abrams and Brad Bird to direct the film, these two Hollywood film makes understand the know-how and the film market needs completely and gives their fans what they want. We never want to miss any movies that produced/directed by them. Need no further explaination, f you have followed their work since "Mr. Mrs Incredible", "Clover fields" and "Lost" and etc, you will understand what we are talking about here, heir execution and screenplay does excel at all time. These time with the new "team-mates" and the "enemy" for Agent Hunt with other casts like Josh Holloway, Michael Nyqvist, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton created new sparks for the film. By the way, nice suit Cruise.
