Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

(PG-13) ★☆☆☆☆

If you enjoyed the first Guy Ritchie retelling of Sherlock, then you’ll leave the sequel feeling satiated. If you hated the first one, you’ll find so little pleasure in this that, sometime around the seventh gamer-style action sequence, you may walk out. Ritchie brings his loutish sense of humor and coldly brutal action sensibility to a weak story in which Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris) foments world war so he can make a killing in the munitions business.

To the right in an 800-square-foot studio, dancers will learn krumping, popping, hip-hop, breaking and DJing from world-renowned choreographers. During open session, dancers will practice at their leisure in a second studio.
