Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Guy Ritchie's sequel is gonna make money. It's an entertaining albeit slightly draggy romp with Robert Downey Jr as his usual charismatic self that is getting repetitive. They overplayed the autistic savant bit too much, me thinks. He and Jude Law has a brotastic chemistry, but what a waste of Noomi Rapace! What a step down from Lisbeth this is for her. Though at least there was the dependently funny Stephen Fry in this. Guy Ritchie does action choreography really well and his fight scenes are really entertaining, particularly the German gun fight sequence in the forest. Well-shot! Hans Zimmer's score was appropriate  but not terribly memorable. BBC's "Sherlock" is a more highly recommended viewing!
