Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
After the somewhat unexpected worldwide success of Ritchie's take on Holmes a few years back, a sequel was guaranteed, and here it is. It offers more of the same, as Holmes and Watson take on Moriarty in a plot borrowed from any Bond movie, with Ritchie's trademark action and cinematic effects. Reviews have been mixed, and opening US boxoffice was disappointing compared to the first episode.
