Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Review: Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Clearly just a money-spinner

In short, it's (of course) not as good as the BBC series, and not even as good as the first one in this franchise - the style seems a bit stale, the jokes lacked punch, Noomi Rapace was totally wasted with minimal lines or screentime, and the plot meandered a bit too much. While I can totally understand how this could be great entertainment for the masses, even for light entertainment this seemed to be lacking. If they're thinking of making a third, let's hope they bring back some of the magic of the first one or leave it altogether!
