Not even sure why I wasted so much time on this, when I was already traumatized by the original. With Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes under his belt, Downey Jr. is (like Harrison Ford) making a career out of creating protagonists for multi-episode movie franchises. But that's not enough. And the camerawork here is dazzling, but that's just Guy Ritchie's signature trademark. I only wish the purported ending here truly happened, so a third "acclaimed" episode in the future wouldn't make me curious to waste even more time on the series.
