Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

This sequel to the 2020 hit finds Sherlock's precocious sister (Millie Bobby Brown) establishing her own London detective agency. While potential clients are more interested in Enola's famous brother (Henry Cavill, once more on fine, floppy-haired form), a child looking for her missing sibling leads the teenage sleuth to a local match factory where she sniffs out a huge conspiracy. However, once the police led by David Thewlis's extraordinarily threatening Inspector Grail become involved, our capable heroine realises she needs help from Sherlock - given more screen-time here, but not at Enola's expense - and her elusive suffragette mother Eudoria (Helena Bonham Carter). Anyone familiar with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's canon and its many adaptations (notably, the BBC's Sherlock series) may guess what lies ahead. That said, there are still enough well-directed carriage chases, stirring fight sequences and dynamic detecting scenes to keep the blood pumping. And Brown is, as always, a pleasure to watch.
