"Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" [B+]

My main complaint about the first Guy Ritchie/Roberty Downey Jr/Jude Law "Sherlock" was that there was not enough detecting and interplay between Holmes and Watson. That complaint is addressed in this entry, which doesn't exactly explore their relationship, ut does expand on it a bit. This feels a bit more 'Sherlock-Holmesy'. Here, too, is plenty of action, even some big guns and big explosions. The gamesmanship between Holmes and Moriarty is, appropriately, kept key. And they provide the inevitable climax. This isn't exactly your father's Sherlock Holmes. But do you really want it to be?
