    Enola Holmes follows the story of the youngest sibling of Sherlock Holmes. She is a 16 year old girl named Enola, and she is an incredibly smart and independent.

    She wakes up one morning to find her mother (her sole provider) missing, so she feels it’s her job to track her down. I see what the creators are intending on doing but the issue I have is that there are aspects of the story that just go nowhere, which is incredibly annoying.

    I won’t spoil anything by going into detail. All in all the movie is well made, looks great, and is historically accurate too, but the cast is where it really shines through. Netflix royalty Millie Bobby Brown is simply amazing, as you’d expect for any one who has seen Stranger Things. Henry Cavill is another; a small part only even though he plays Sherlock Holmes, it kind of sucks that he isn’t all too important but yet again it is Enola’s movie.

    I really don’t know what to say, there are aspects that are incredible but then there are parts that I really did not like. You balance it up, unfortunately for me the negative outweighs the positive.
