    Enola Holmes 2: A Captivating Sequel
    In the bustling heart of Victorian England, Enola Holmes, the spirited and independent teenage sister of the renowned detective Sherlock Holmes, returns in an engrossing sequel that seamlessly intertwines a captivating mystery with a nuanced exploration of sisterhood and self-discovery. As she navigates the complexities of adolescence and the societal pressures that seek to confine her, Enola finds herself drawn into a perplexing enigma when the disappearance of a young heiress ignites a chain of events that will test her intellect, resourcefulness, and unwavering determination.

    Millie Bobby Brown delivers a compelling performance, capturing Enola's unwavering spirit, growing maturity, and effortless charm with authenticity. She effortlessly transitions from action-packed sequences to emotionally charged moments, imbuing the character with depth and relatability that resonates with viewers. Enola's journey in this installment takes an intriguing turn as she confronts the challenges of womanhood and the expectations placed upon women, while simultaneously discovering her own strengths and aspirations. This exploration of sisterhood and self-discovery makes Enola a relatable and inspiring figure for young women everywhere.

    The sequel builds upon the strengths of its predecessor, crafting a narrative that is both intricate and engaging, keeping viewers engrossed from start to finish. The mystery at the heart of the story is more complex and perplexing than before, with a labyrinth of suspects and motives that keep the audience guessing until the very end. The film's pacing is tighter, with fewer lulls, allowing the story to unfold at a captivating pace, ensuring that viewers are fully immersed in Enola's world.

    The film seamlessly interweaves the fictional world of Enola with the historical context of the suffragette movement, adding a layer of social relevance and depth to Enola's journey. As Enola encounters characters actively involved in the fight for women's suffrage, she confronts the contradictions between her own aspirations and the societal norms that seek to confine her. This connection to the feminist movement enriches Enola's character arc and adds complexity to the film's overall themes.

    Henry Cavill, once again portraying the iconic detective Sherlock Holmes, brings a newfound blend of charm, vulnerability, and paternal concern to the role. His interactions with Enola are more nuanced and heartfelt, demonstrating the deepening bond between siblings and their mutual respect for each other's abilities.

    Enola Holmes 2 emerges as a worthy successor to its predecessor, elevating the franchise to new heights. With its captivating blend of mystery, adventure, and personal growth, the film offers a thought-provoking exploration of themes that are as relevant today as they were in Victorian England. The film's strong narrative, well-developed characters, and intriguing connection to real-world events make it a must-see for fans and newcomers alike.

    Rating: 7/10.

    Enola Holmes 2
    The film is based on a book. The film is set in England and starts in 2020. It tells the story of Enola who is interested in being the detective for the first time and she decides to follow the pace of her brother Sherlock Holmes to set up a detective agency.

    I love the acting in the film. Millie Bobby Brown stars as Enola Holmes and my favourite character is Enola Holmes. It was written by Nancy Springer.

    I think this is an ideal film for people who like suspense or detective movies. It is bit sad, but the story is really interesting and there is a lot of action. I give Enola Holmes 4 stars. Go and watch it soon!

    well, 'tis a movie
    Well... 'tis a movie it exists.

    It has quite a few callbacks to the first (in humour as in visuals as well as in actual footage).

    But way more ideas and jokes are just done for a second time, which was then just "aha, memberberry?"

    we sadly, actually fell asleep twice on the sofa.

    Good idea to cut their annoying version of Mycroft out, but that was apparently only luck and schedule.

    All in all, they should've stuck either to one of the Enola Books, or woven something from the canon in. This was just not interesting or captivating.

    All that made the first movie interesting was not there.

    But they probably spend more time to fill Victorian London with PC amounts of POCs.

    Watchable, but part 1 was better.
    As per normal with sequels the first instalment was good but they can never seem to quite pull it off a second time; this second episode has lost the freshness of the first and it seems to be trying much too hard, it's pretty messy in places and some of the actually quite heavy political themes feel glib and unsubtle when forced upon what is essentially a comedy caper. The actors to some extent come to the rescue and make decent enough fist of it, Milly Bobby Brown captures the upper class English mannerisms well and makes some good jokes at their expense, although the device of the wacky female lead using arch asides to the audience has been much overused recently and is wearing a bit thin. The costumes and sets are good, I particularly liked Sherlock's flat.

    Elona Holmes and Sherlock Homles
    Enola Holmes was a good step up from the first one, from the writing to the action music everything. They didn't try to do better than the first movie they just continued on the story. They added more of Sherlock and his mindset into it. And some of it was based on a true important story which made it more meaningful and more interesting to watch. I had a hard time looking away from the screen. Everyones acting was really good all the new characters had a good part in the movie everything kept building up and kept me watching overall I have nothing bad to say about the film. All the one star reviews say how it was boring and you will fall asleep but don't explain why. Those are not real reviews. Enola Holmes 10/10.

    A bit tricky to follow
    For anyone who has watched the first Enola Holmes will probably relate to some thing said here. It's definitely a good movie to watch if you want to watch something for the time to pass but it's not so catchy. Taking into consideration the plot from the first movie, it's much more understandable than the second one. Enola Holmes 2 tries to mix many scenarios together in some way or another, making it a bit difficult to follow. But, to not be always harsh, even if it's a bit fast, it's a great movie from Netflix that is worth the shot if you are a fan of Sherlock and detective movies in general.

    I don't get the constant looking in to the camera
    It's disturbing and also the poor actress then seems to feel the pressure to ham it up! What's the purpose of it? To be plucky and cute? It ALWAYS ruins the moment. Always. Maybe this is for kids?? But seems a tad bloody. I'm 55 and love Sherlock Holmes, and many murder mysteries. Poirot and the Cumberbatch Sherlock... just to give you an idea. This movie - I find the tone a tad confusing. It's kind of CW cheesy/glossy and Harry Potter ish looking. The plucky stubborn young girl who knows no fear and mugs In to the camera ...is just ...odd to me. Where is the foundation? Why can't some of it be played for real? Are we to never worry for her safety? I guess not as it seems tonally to be a farce. Are we to think she's a gifted young lady? Not really, As she does so many truly dumb things, like telling the bad guys to their face she's on to them. Or finding a girl Dying and then, purposefully, AFTER she's dead shoving her hands on to the wound to get blood on them so she can be a suspect and She can have an action sequence to escape. (Obvious writing and directing) Is it funny? Some reviews say yes, but I found the direction, as an example, for her to take an extra large bite of food right before some lines to show how out of place she is, is pretty transparent and deserves A good eye roll. Thats the kind of comedy we got here. In other words, as I stated, I don't get it. Who's the target audience here?? What's the point? Sherlock needs a side kick?? Or is this just a movie for kids??? I'm about an hour in and am Not sure I'm gonna make it. I'm not engaged one tiny bit. There's just no danger and when There is some, she begged for it and therefore The hand of the writer upstages the actors, which is hard to do as most of them are gilding the Lilly. All except for Sherlock and helena Bonham, of course. I just wish they told a good story and didnt Feel the need to rely on tricks.
