Reviews for Enola Holmes ( ) 1080p

IMDB: 8.3 / 10

Loved it, want more!

It's hilarious the commenters who don't like the movie because of "feminist agenda." Does a strong female lead really upset you that much? I loved Enola's asides most of all. The film is a beautiful compliment and nod to multiple Sherlock series but with it's own unique take from a feminine perspective that presents as both traditional and sardonic at the same time. Only wish was that Sherlock was a bit more involved.

Millie you will go far!

This young woman has a great future, she has talent and charisma. The film is entertaining and beautiful to watch. Well done Netflix

Just fun

Don't watch it as a next Sherlock Holmes. Watch it as a fun story for teenagers with great acting.

MILLIE DOES IT RIGHT

It requires braveness to be young and speak up your voice the way Millie does. It's a stunning, beautiful movie for those forgotten women in the last century. It's not just a feminist movie, it's a statement of intents of what our mission as young people is: stand up for equality, human rights and commemorate the good ones in the past. Also, a very good adventure movie to watch in family .

"Enola Holmes" is a fun break from 2020

I will make this quick, Enola Holmes is just pure fun. Honestly, the fun is what saved this movie. The story is okay but not great, everyone besides Enola is kinda one note, and the run time is slightly too long. However, Millie Bobby Brown is just absolutely wonderful, and the decision to have her break the fourth wall and interact with the audience worked very well. It is just a fun movie to watch despite it's obvious flaws as a film. I would recommend to anyone.

Great film - uplifting - wish they'd continue it as a series

Great film, fun writing and characters. I wish they'd turn it into a series for some streaming service or even television proper because it is heads and shoulders and standing standing atop a crate above just about everything else out there. Every reviewer could say "oh they could have / should have ..... " but then it wouldn't be the same film. It hits it's intended target quite well and keep the stories living and breathing and of interest for the next generation instead of letting the Sherlock Holmes wither and die. Don't look for brain straining problems, instead look for puzzles that are fun to solve and you'll have a much better experience and for all the Dads out there, tell your daughter she has a date Sunday, after dinner ;)

Light and fun movie

Perfect for family time.great interpretation of Millie Bobby Brown

What's waste of time.

A waste of time to watch, a waste of money for the investors, another waste from Netflix. When are there going to be some descent productions to watch on a Netflix?

Visually impressive

But lacks substance. I long for the days when a movie was meant to convey a story and entertainment not a political ideology.

Was HBC character even needed?

Perfect for a 15 yro girl

This is the movie I wish I had at 15. This isn't about Sherlock Holmes. It's not about solving a mystery or surprising the audience. It's about a teenage girl finding out who she is. It was charming, funny, wonderfully acted, aesthetically pleasing, and sweet. If you are a grown man criticizing it, Back off. This wasn't made for you. Or me. This was made for 15 yro girls. And the fifteen year old girl in me LOVED it.

Millie as Enola

All I can say Millie has a great future a head, she was brilliant the entire movie is based on her great performance and the entire cast and crew did a great job to show how awesome actor Millie is.

bless you to a great career and more outstanding performances.

A series maybe??

I won't say anything more than that I enjoyed this very much, I found it old but fresh at the same time and I want more of it really soon!!!

Cringe-inducing

I liked Sherlock's soft side. Otherwise this film is a total failure. Suffered through half of it and then skimmed through the other half. Spectacularly bad writing. Awkward dialogues. Cardboard characters and common misconceptions. Corsets as symbols of oppression? Female boarding schools existing solely to turn free-thinking, spirited girls into socially accepted matrons? Ugh. Usual nonsense about white privilege, raging feminism, insulting men left and right... This is simply unwatchable. I am a non-white woman, by the way, so films like this one are supposed to appeal to me? The heroine's constant breaking the fourth wall is another very annoying feature.

A side note from a Holmes fan POV: Mycroft in this film is not Mycroft. It's someone else: a small, skinny guy with zero intellect and deductive powers. And NO WATSON. Waste of time.

Great family movie night

Intresting plot good acting. Sat down with the whole family to watch andcwe all enjoyed it. Especially good movie for mother and daughter.

Not for Sherlock Holmes fans, but not bad either.

Enola Holmes is absolutely wonderful, quirky and charming. You'll absolutely love it, unless you're a Sherlock Holmes fan, then it quickly looses its charms. They basically change every character completely to fit the story, rendering them unrecognisable. But, it's made for young teen girls and they will love it. I should also add, that Henry Cavill is one of the worst Sherlock Holmes, I've ever seen. I genuinely like him as an actor, but in this case I think he was terribly miscast.

If you love Sherlock Holmes, you won't love this... but if you don't care about Holmes you'll have a great time.

Jiu-Jitsu in the early 1900s, Yes, females and children were taught.

For the other reviewers that stated things like female Jiu-Jitsu classes were unheard off and it ruins the "period films", are just wrong. Jiu-Jitsu classes for males, females and children were held in England and Europe. Mr. and Mrs Garrud Garrud, trained by a Japanese master, ran his dojo after he went back to Japan (1908?). Mrs. Garrud ran the Suffragette Self-Defense Club, her and the club have quite the story (worth a rabbit hole dive).

Why is everybody so serious?

This a fun movie, full stop. It's not period piece, it's not drama, just a fun movie. Everything is laid back, without to much trouble. This is one of those movie that you can watch at any time, to pass the time. MBB is cute as hell, and so much grown as and actress from Strange things.

Fun, sweet and uplifting

I enjoyed this movie and I am someone who is in the center politically. I sometimes think woke culture is pushed too much, but not in this movie. In my opinion this movie is about being your own person. I loved the acting and had no problems accepting the story.

A charming film - good for the whole family!

Rarely nowadays can we find a film that everyone in the family can watch together but happily this is one of those films. Charming characters, good story, action, lovely landscapes...Just a very enjoyable film....

I loved it!

A really fun film, perfect for family movie nights. Millie Bobby Brown is a fantastic actress, it really impressed me that she produced this film- I'm looking forward to her next one.The plot was good, the characters are likable, the message was strong, and the mystery engaging. I would recommend it.
