Not sure I'd like this as much if it was without Millie Bobby Brown, who is excellent. 'Enola Holmes' is a good film, even if it does hold issues. The plot isn't one that entertained me that much, the mystery elements are average, though it still has a few moments. The humour is solid, as it just about everything else. I didn't love the constant "fourth wall breaking", but Brown helps make it work to the point it didn't get annoying. Louis Partridge impresses too. Henry Cavill and Sam Claflin are strong casts to play Sherlock and Mycroft. I liked seeing Burn Gorman and Adeel Akhtar in their respective roles. The cast, as a whole, are enjoyable. I wouldn't be surprised to see this get multiple sequels, I actually reckon it could turn into a good if unspectacular series - as long as Brown sticks around.

Really good watch, might watch again, and can recommend. To absolutely fair, I'm not sure if this will appeal to Sherlock Holmes fans, but does expand the "Sherlock-verse", so make up your own mind. I love Millie Bobby Brown ("Stranger Things"), and this proves she is quite capable of not only leading a movie, but carrying the entire bloody thing. Despite what feels almost a lack of contribution from everyone else in the movie, this actually turns out quite good. I do wish she didn't do the fourth wall breaks, it really feels like she's either turning to a documentary crew or suddenly updating instagram. It was a little jarring, and they're clearly referencing Sherlock's "mind palace" techniques displayed in the movies, but with a "twist". I honestly expected someone to ask her if she's okay, like in "Dora and the Lost City of Gold". It would have been equally acceptable to do...

If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free reviews, please follow my blog @ https://www.msbreviews.com 2020 is unquestionably one of the most challenging years movie theaters ever had to face. The still going global pandemic closed down everything, including my favorite place to spend the most wonderful time. Therefore, the already growing streaming services got a huge bump, earning more and more subscribers during this tough phase in our lives. Netflix has been extremely busy releasing brand-new flicks since the beginning of the year, being The Devil All The Time, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, and Project Power the latest. Some better than others, but I’m still to find a 2020’s original film from the studio that I genuinely dislike. Is Enola Holmes the first one? Well, no, far from that. With such a talented cast and high production value, a new take on the classic Sherlock Holmes’ mysteries is certainly welcome, and this is...
