Millie Bobby Brown, as the titular character of Enola Holmes, gives nothing less than perfection as the sister of the iconic Sherlock Holmes. Her performance was full of wit and humor both pursuing young love and proving herself as the competent counterpart to her older brother. The slightly intimidating task of portraying the iconic Sherlock Holmes was put in the good hands of Henry Cavill once again, who delivered an outstanding performance. Not known for comedic roles, Cavill is able to go along with the witty and comedic theme of the movie perfectly while also maintaining the intelligent and composed aura of Sherlock Holmes.
The legendary Helena Bonham Carter CBE reprises her role as Eudoria Holmes. While her role was minor in this film, her abilities were more than sufficient to portray the eccentric and clever mother to the pair of detectives. There was hardly an impression out of place in the entire movie. Each actor involved gave an organic performance full of wit and humor. It is a dramatic energy that perfectly fits the flow of the film and keeps the pacing effective.
‘Enola Holmes 2’ – Wonderful Visuals And Storytelling
The film provides excellent visuals of cartoon sketch cutaways that flow throughout the movie and gives it color and livelihood. These cutaways are used to highlight significant plot points and provide eye-catching visuals that appeal to a younger audience. Apart from the light-hearted nature and comedy, these visuals complement the family-friendly aspect of this film, which gives it its greatest strength.
Breaking the fourth wall also provided situational humor during the film. It also provides good narration from Enola throughout the film that affirms certain things as the plot progresses. Millie Bobby Brown is definitely an actress that keeps an audience’s attention by breaking the fourth wall. Her rollicking nature is one put to good use in a film like this, and this cinematic device suited her well.
A Well-Written Mystery
The story in this film is worthy of what you would expect from a family of world-renown sleuths—a potent mixture of mystery and thrill that keeps its momentum through quick wit and comedy. The mystery itself is intricate and thrilling, with classic deduction and sleuthing from Enola and Sherlock that keep you invested in a constantly unwinding conflict. The layering in this film, complemented by several twists, elicited intrigue that you would only get from trying to follow a Holmes case, and it made that much more enjoyable when the mystery was finally unraveled.
Charming and Sweet Romance
Millie Brown and Louis Partridge do a fantastic job of capturing the romance between Enola Holmes and Viscount Tewkesbury. It’s a “will they, or won’t they” formula with comedy and wit that doesn’t bog down the moment at all. The development of this love interest is charming and sweet without becoming intrusive to the overall progression of the story. The performances by the two actors were terrific and built great chemistry on screen. They captured the endearing nature of young love, and the banter between them was a comedic goldmine.
Connection To A Historical Event
‘Enola Holmes 2’ bases its story around an actual historical event that makes the ending that much more enjoyable. Fictional additions or modifications to historical events can generally produce complete stories as they are grounded in real topics. This film does just that and ties a very entertaining story to a historical event that plays organically and gives it plausibility to the extent that historical fiction allows. It takes place in the late 1880s, right around the time of the Bryant and May Match Girls Strike. This was a strike on a matchstick production company that paid low wages and knowingly placed workers in dangerously unsafe conditions. ‘Enola Holmes 2’ takes a twist on this that is logical and incredibly entertaining with the intrigue and mystery it was able to create through this historical event.
A Clever Cameo And Set Up
This film includes a very significant cameo of Sherlock Holmes stories that presents itself in the rising action but takes a final and surprising twist toward the film’s conclusion. This development significantly impacts the overall plot and leaves the door open for another film that could prove to be the best in the series yet. Viewers familiar with the stories of Sherlock Holmes will undoubtedly be eager for the next installment in the series, while those who search for the significance of this cameo will inevitably also follow suit.
‘Enola Holmes 2’ is an incredibly well-rounded family film with a fantastic cast, an entertaining plot, and tons of comedy. It has value for all members of the family, and its rewatch value is tremendous. ‘Enola Holmes 2’ is now streaming on Netflix and is number one in U.S. movies today.
If you enjoy the movie, make sure to keep an eye out for the latest news and developments from Netflix for ‘Enola Holmes 3’.

Click here to read The Hollywood Insider’s CEO Pritan Ambroase’s love letter to Cinema, TV and Media. An excerpt from the love letter: The Hollywood Insider’s CEO/editor-in-chief Pritan Ambroase affirms, “We have the space and time for all your stories, no matter who/what/where you are. Media/Cinema/TV have a responsibility to better the world and The Hollywood Insider will continue to do so. Talent, diversity and authenticity matter in Cinema/TV, media and storytelling. In fact, I reckon that we should announce “talent-diversity-authenticity-storytelling-Cinema-Oscars-Academy-Awards” as synonyms of each other. We show respect to talent and stories regardless of their skin color, race, gender, sexuality, religion, nationality, etc., thus allowing authenticity into this system just by something as simple as accepting and showing respect to the human species’ factual diversity. We become greater just by respecting and appreciating talent in all its shapes, sizes, and forms. Award winners, which includes nominees, must be chosen on the greatness of their talent ALONE.
I am sure I am speaking for a multitude of Cinema lovers all over the world when I speak of the following sentiments that this medium of art has blessed me with. Cinema taught me about our world, at times in English and at times through the beautiful one-inch bar of subtitles. I learned from the stories in the global movies that we are all alike across all borders. Remember that one of the best symbols of many great civilizations and their prosperity has been the art they have left behind. This art can be in the form of paintings, sculptures, architecture, writings, inventions, etc. For our modern society, Cinema happens to be one of them. Cinema is more than just a form of entertainment, it is an integral part of society. I love the world uniting, be it for Cinema, TV, media, art, fashion, sport, etc. Please keep this going full speed.”
