Enola Holmes 2 (2022)


If I were to ask you today what the first book of Enola Holmes 2 was actually about (I won’t twist it, ugh), all you would get was a shrug, a thoughtful expression, and then a bold guess: “About feminism?”, the plot was so shallow that all I can think of is turning to the camera, the disappointment of the unused Cavill and, of course, the cute cuckoo Millie Bobby Brown, for whose talent, by the way, I will fight to the death with Mr. I’m hungry. I would die with my head held high.

However, the second film simply had a lot to fix. Well, that’s exactly what happened, so I can now cheerfully announce that the number two is better in almost every conceivable way. At the same time, I add that deciding whether to go to it or not is a very straightforward matter. If you don’t like MBB and teen mystery detectives aren’t your favorite genre, you’re in for a treat. However, if you are a fan of the young actress after the series Stranger Things and just want to see a “better” movie with her, then the duo has a lot to offer.

The plot begins sometime after Enola’s first successful case, which, of course, the public immediately associated with her more famous brother Sherlock Holmes. Enola’s efforts to start her detective agency are quickly extinguished by the fact that at the end of the 19th century, society simply did not respect women, let alone young girls, and therefore no one wanted the services of a young detective. That is until she is hired by an even younger poor girl from a match factory who is missing her older sister. It doesn’t take long, and the story based on real events gets off to a good start, with Sherlock himself getting much more space this time.

But what pleased me from the beginning was the style and pace with which second-time director Harry Bradbeer gave the impression that Robert Downey Jr. would peek out from around the corner at any moment, and in slow-motion he would count the number of bones left in the whole of the evil police officers, and then we break the rest. Nothing like that will happen in the second Enola, but the important thing is that it could, and I would take it as a normal part of this world. And that is a big plus.

In reality, however, Enola is going its own way. Again, the fourth wall is broken, when, for example, the main character becomes involved in the film several times when she breaks something, in addition, a rather complicated case involving conspiracy, theft, and murder is solved, and there is also the continuation of the romance between Enola and still-not-a-man By Lord Tewkesbury. To a lesser extent, the toe-to-toe between the characters of Brown and Cavill also returned (Claflin’s Mycroft is MIA), because this time Sherlock spends more time actively solving his case, which also features an iconic villain.

Yes, the script this time will please fans of detective stories, because in the finale everything is nicely connected and graduated, but above all, it is engaging the whole time, so there is no danger that I won’t remember the action of this film again in two years with the third one. The message is then quite similar to the last time, but this time delivered much more sensitively. If I were to compare it with other adaptations, I liked the story of Enola’s two more than Sherlock’s two by Ritchie. Of course, it didn’t hurt that Cavill got one of his cracking scenes à la Benedict Cumberbatch.

But the second part brought a few ailments with it. In the action scenes, a certain clumsiness of the crew is still visible, the film could have done without a few plot twists (like the return of Enola’s estranged mother, because nothing against Helena Bonham Carter, but she seems completely unnecessary in the series to me), and the fluctuating pace of it all in the middle he didn’t add the passage either. However, for what it is and what it’s trying to say, I found the second Enola surprisingly very cool. You can Netflix The Good Sister with me credits another win in a short row and confirms that the film line-up is a bit stronger during the autumn/winter season after all. It will be particularly pleasing with Enola because, with this cast and these qualities, I will always like the trio. Especially after the funny ending, which will once again make people’s veins burst for quite obvious reasons. However, I leave the spoiler debate to the discussion that I am opening here.
