It gets the 'minus' cause I felt it started slow and some of the overt buddy jokes in the first act felt heavy handed. However, once we get fully into the second act it drops that and the pace and intrigue pick up. I credit a large part of that to the increased involvement of Moriarity. I have high praise of Jared Harris as Moriarity. The two scenes they really engaged in were good but without a doubt the last one on the balcony playing chess at the climax was brilliant. He and Downey played wonderfully off of each other. I may end up seeing this again.
