Enola Holmes 2 Review: Millie Bobby Brown Wins Us Over Again As The Witty Teen Spy

Enola Holmes 2 is a 2022 American mystery thriller film based around the adventures of the titular teen detective and a sequel to Netflix’s Enola Holmes (2020). Directed by Harry Bradbeer with a screenplay written by Jack Thorne and based on Nancy Springer’s The Enola Holmes Mysteries novels. Enola Holmes 2 streams on Netflix worldwide on November 4, 2022, with a runtime of 2h,8m. 

Enola Holmes 2 Cast 

The Legendary-Netflix co-production stars Millie Bobby Brown Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes and Helena Bonham Carter as Eudoria Holmes. The supporting cast includes David Thewlis (Wonder Woman), Adeel Akhtar (Sweet Tooth), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Dune), and Abbie Hern (The Twilight Zone).

Storyline 

Fresh off the triumph of solving her first case, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) follows in the footsteps of her famous brother, Sherlock (Henry Cavill), and opens her own agency only to find that life as a female detective-for-hire isn’t as easy as it seems. Resigned to accept the cold realities of adulthood, she is about to close shop when a penniless matchstick girl offers Enola her first real job: to find her missing sister. 

The plot of Enola Holmes 2 focuses on  Enola finding a missing girl who works at the match factory and whilst it ends similarly with women demanding better working conditions, we get an elaborate adventure that includes dancing at balls, running from authorities, and plenty of murders before we get there. 

Review 

Enola Holmes 2 is an absolutely perfect sequel to the first movie and the viewers get to enjoy more developed characters with a plot that presents more twists and turns this time. Where the first movie attempts to establish itself as a feminist movie with lighter undertones, the sequel dives into darker and sinister tones to accompany our now older protagonist.

Those who enjoyed Henry Cavill as  Sherlock in Enola Holmes will be especially happy to see him more involved in the story of the sequel, but this remains Brown’s franchise.

She becomes a powerhouse and continues to capitalize on her skill and charm to keep this film series engaging, and viewers will be won over by the better-constructed mystery and delightful dynamic between the two Holmes siblings. 

Brown and Cavill have relatively strong chemistry. The two take jabs at each other frequently as means to show care for each other and have an underlying sibling rivalry that is all too familiar for those who grow up with a golden sibling in the family.

The two also love each other from a distance which is admirable. The movie does follow the same mechanics as the first one and breaks the fourth wall, with a plot that is centered on feminism and enjoys using flashbacks to explain why Enola is the way she is. 

Enola Holmes 2 bends multiple interconnected genres but it’s still a fun and entertaining watch that you’ll never want to end.
