Not As Good As Original

I'm a big Robert Downey Junior fan. This movie was not nearly as good as the first one, in my opinion. The first was GREAT. I guess this was more of the same, but I felt like I was in the theater for 4 hours. Very slow moving. Not worth going to the theater. Stay home and wait for the Netflix or DVD to come out. Save your money and time. But if you are a Robert Downey Jr fan, then go see it. Not his fault the plot was slow, but his performance is fanatastic as usual. I have to admit, even if I read a bad review on the movie, I would have gone anyway, and I will see the next Sherlock (if Downey in it) as well.

Great action sequences interspersed with cerebral character exploration and cunning strategies. I was very entertained and surprised at how well it all came together at the end.

Great Entertainment

I am used to the brainiac Sherlock not the physical one. BUT, I think they pulled it off quite well with balancing the two. Jude Law was a great Dr. Watson and Robert Downey Jr. was a great Sherlock. Story line was excellent and easy to follow. Now, I must see the first one with RDJ. Go see it! I would not take kids under 13 to see it.

Mixed Thoughts

I was highly anticipating this movie, but am left with mixed emotions. I felt that it was a well told story, wonderfully acted, and the action sequences were absolutely amazing. But I felt as if something was lacking. I was such a fan of the first one, and although the second is very good, it feel as if I was somehow let down.

I for one have found myself for lack of a better term..movied out. I have not been to the movies since the last Pirates movie and befoe that True Grit. Needless to say I just wasnt feelling it. I was a huge fan of the first Sherlock Holmes movie and really enjoy watching Robert Downy Jr. so of course I had to go see this , good or bad. To my satisfaction this movie was so much fun, I cant remember the last time I left the movie theatre looking forward to only wanting to turn around and see this movie again. It was so witty, action packed and extremely clever. Ive talked to some who dont like it or want to wait to rent it, but if you truly enjoy humor and a just overall feelgood movie, my money is on this one. Probably twice more at the theatres and on blu ray when its released. Its that good in my opinion....5 stars
