Movie Review | Enola Holmes

Yes I finally watched it!!

Yes I Did It GIFs | Tenor

Enola Holmes is 2020 film starring Millie Bobby Brown, Louise Partridge, Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin and Helena Bonham Carter, directed by Harry Bradbeer.

Enola Holmes (film) - Wikipedia

The plot was excellent! It was super good, and I love how it was a canon of Sherlock Holmes. Now, I am familiar with the name of Sherlock Holmes, but I haven’t read any of his stories or watched the TV shows, although it is on my To-Do list. But, I do love a good mystery, and this was a …. different kind of mystery, so I did enjoy it!

The actors were excellent. I could feel hatred for Mycroft surging through me, all because of Sam Claflin’s acting. The way Henry Cavill presented himself made the viewer know that he is aloof- it was in his body language. Oh, and Millie Bobby Brown, what do I even say? I loved her work in Stranger Things, and here where she had to play a totally different role, personality wise, I enjoyed it too!! And all other actors, Louise, Helena, they were great too!!

Another aspect I enjoyed was the projection of Enola and Eudoria’s bond, and I also enjoyed how Sherlock and Enola’s bond was developed.

The music I think could be worked upon. It didn’t seem as vintage as the tale.

The message of the film was wonderful too! The fact that we pave our own path was emphasized upon a lot, and that is something I respect about the script.

The only thing I didn’t like was the ending. I felt it was a little too abrupt, and I think a little more closure with needed.

At the end, when I came to know that the film is based on a book, I understood why it was so fantabulous! I added this book straight to my never-ending TBR list!

I enjoyed the film, especially the message. I would recommend it to mystery-lovers, who want a light headed film. It’s a fun watch, one that all ages and sexes will enjoy. It’s a good family watch as well.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

  1. Thanks for reviewing this! I saw the trailer and was really impressed, but forgot about it in the never ending blizzard of new streaming releases. Your review has reminded me to give it a watch!

  2. If you love the original Sherlock Holmes books I would highly recommend The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes show with Jeremy Brett, his performance is the most faithful and true to Conan Doyle’s work. It is an older show (1980s). I think most of them are free on YouTube.

  3. I loved Enola Holmes too!! Although yes I agree, that ending was too abrupt. Actually, you captured my thoughts about this film exactly!! I am not planning on watching stranger things (it is scary and I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to scary stuff) but Millie Bobby brown is a very good actress! Ooh and I’m curious – what did you think of lord Tewkesbury (is that how the name is pronounced? Lol)

    1. Oh, you should definitely give Stranger Things a watch, it isn’t as scary as you might think- I am a wimp too, but I survived after watching it😂
      And Tewkesbury was sweet, and well not very charming, but he was sweet

  4. I watched this movie just five days ago and fell in love with it. I especially watched it for Millie Bobby Brown after completing Stranger Things. Her acting is just out of the world. The ending wasn’t clear to me as to why Tewkesbury’s grandmother wanted to kill him… Thanks for the review!

    1. Yeah, Millie Bobby Brown is a good actress!
      Also, Tewkesbury s grandma wanted to kill him because she didnt want England’s culture and stuff to change, and if Tewkesbury would be alive, it would change because he had revolutionary ideas.
      Thanks for reading!
