    On second viewing, it's now a perfect film.

    How did Steve Guttenberg have an acting career? It boggles the mind. He's like a poor man's Rick Moranis in this.

    Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows 2011

    ★★½ Watched 16 Dec, 2011

    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.
