Chris’s review published on Letterboxd:
Enola Holmes: I am a detective, I am a decipherer, and I am a finder of lost souls. My life is my own. And the future is up to us.
I truly enjoyed this film. It was fast-paced and immensely entertaining. Enola Holmes was a "feel good", fun-filled, and grand mystery solving adventure with an intriguing story, plot, and screenplay filled with likeable and fleshed out characters.
I absolutely loved Millie Bobby Brown and her sleuth character Enola Holmes, including how her character broke the "4th wall" and spoke to us, her audience. Her performance was so vivacious and enthralling, I loved and soaked up every minute that she was on screen. I see a mega talent ready to emerge if she continues down this path.
Fantastic and enjoyable performances from the other cast members, especially Henry Cavill (Sherlock Holmes) and Helena Bonham Carter (Eudoria Holmes).
Overall, Harry Bradbeer gave us a brilliant and solid film with fun and hugely enjoyable characters with a truly suspenseful mystery to help Enola solve along the way. In the words of Enola Holmes, "The game is afoot!" Highly recommended!
