    A perfect film.

    ★★½

    Had high hopes for this as I loved the book, but they were dashed very early on. So many good moments in the book are exorcised in favor of an invented love triangle.

    Like firing skittles into your eyes for two hours.

    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

    ★★½

    Ritchie's rough edge, displayed previously in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, seems to be dulled in his Sherlock Holmes series. This second "romp" moves at an unforgiving pace, sadly lacking any danger or jeopardy in its many action set pieces, and whatever relationship was built between Holmes and Watson in the first film quickly dissolves into self-serving foolishness.
