Enola Holmes 2 Review: Mysteriously Fun Sequel

Enola Holmes 2 is the sequel to an unexpected Netflix franchise. I watched Enola Holmes for the first time this week in preparation for this exam; when it originally came out, it was one of the movies that looked interesting but was on my watch list. It was fun to see a refreshing take on Sherlock Holmes, and it continues in the sequel. Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill lead this ensemble in an entertaining mystery full of humor, action and good old British charm.

Enola Holmes 2 review

The film picks up right after the first with Enola Holmes creating her own detective agency, following in the footsteps of her famous brother Sherlock. Naturally, given the time period, Enola’s agency begins to fail as people don’t want to hire a female detective (especially when there’s the other Holmes available). Everything changes when a little girl named Bessie arrives for Enola to find her missing sister. Enola takes on the case happily, but she soon realizes that her case is only a small part of a much bigger case than either she or Sherlock could have expected.

Millie Bobby Brown has come a long way since bursting onto the scene in stranger things. While Eleven is an iconic character, Enola Holmes allows Brown to show her wit and humor more naturally. She does a great job directing the film and has great chemistry with the entire cast. This chemistry is particularly evident when paired with Henry Cavill as the famous Sherlock Holmes.

Cavill is the latest pop culture Sherlock we’ve been treated to over the years, following in the footsteps of Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Jr. However, Cavill plays a kinder, more caring Sherlock than we’ve ever seen before. He wants what’s best for Enola, even if it’s against his will most of the time; he doesn’t want her to live the life of a detective like him, even though she has the natural talent for it.

All in all, it’s a fun Netflix movie you should check out this weekend, as well as the original if you’ve never seen it before. Brown and Cavill are great onscreen together, along with David Thewlis and Helena Bonham Carter. There’s also a nice twist towards the end, but I’ll let you figure that out for yourself! Netflix says they’re looking for their own franchises, and I’d say they’ve got a good one on their hands with Enola Holmes.
