Generic action flick passed off as Sherlock Holmes

I was sorely disappointed with this movie. I was expecting Sherlock Holmes but in the end you really could have made this movie using any character. Turning the Sherlock Holmes franchise into a martial arts fighting, swashbuckling action hero really does a disservice to what makes Sherlock Holmes so entertaining. Just another instance of Hollywood ruining a masterpiece by ignoring what made the original so compelling and instead injecting it with special effects laden action mumbo jumbo.

To me Sherlock Holmes' movies should be mysteries and not action flicks. This was definitely an action flick and not my cup of tea. It was a good action flick with great effects. but a losy Sherlock Holmes' movie

It was great. You really need to pay attention and even then I'll see it a second time. Loads of good one liners. Yo even need to pay attention to the music to catch everything.

Movie was better written than the first. I think the first movie was overall better than this one but I liked this one nonetheless. I do want to see it again!

Truthfully, not as good as the first one, still a great movie on it's own. Absolutely a must see!!! I may see it again before it leaves the theatre.
