Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows 2011 ★★½

Entertaining enough, but instead of turning Holmes into a James Bond, I would have much preferred a smaller, more scaled down old-fashioned mystery.

A Game of Shadows suffers the same fate as numerous sequels by attempting to out-do everything they did in the first one. Bigger, badder bad guy, more slow motion, more humor, etc etc. Yes, some scenes were very stylish, but lacked substance and heart.

I was really hoping for better, but I got what I expected from the trailer.
