Dominant worldview and other worldview content/elements:
Overall, the light-hearted liberal romantic worldview calls for reform in a corrupt part of Victorian England’s system, where female workers in a match factory are damaged by a corrupt businessman working with a corrupt government official some woke up politically correct by inserting black characters into what is historically a system with only white people running it and in this one the woke cast is part of the revisionist history of the movie that sees political reform as just a liberal and leftist cause when it is a fact that conservative and free market political theory enables economic and political reform as well as nobility obliges within the conservative market system and free, the film has strong and anachronistic feminist elements that side with the main character’s mother who is a more radical leftist. adical than most suffragette activists of the time, but the liberal, left-wing worldview is dampened by strong moral elements that celebrate doing the right thing, nobility o blige, stopping a wicked plan hatched by a corrupt government official and a corrupt businessman, plus there is a scene with overt Christian content that references the Holy Trinity and Jesus in a positive, somewhat metaphorical and delightful way

In ENOLA HOLMES 2 on Netflix, the younger sister of Sherlock Homes takes on a missing persons case for a young woman working in a match factory and discovers the case has political ramifications related to a case vexing her brother, Sherlock. ENOLA HOLMES 2 is a fun and thrilling mystery adventure with strong moral content and a delightful metaphorical scene referencing the Holy Trinity and Jesus, but it’s marred by a romantic worldview with woke politics, revisionist history and twists. feminist elements.
Sherlock’s younger sister, Enola, has something to prove. She wants to be taken seriously as a detective. Enola thinks she has the right qualifications, including a background in jujitsu. She puts down her shingle and is hungry for business. One by one she is insulted and rejected for being a young woman in a time when she cannot be taken seriously. A client even asks, “Is your brother available?” Deflated, Enola is about to end her pursuit, when a little girl named Bessie asks for help in finding her missing sister, but the sister turns out to be just a kind young woman who took Bessie under her wing. Enola accepts her first case.
Like the eldest daughter, who is called Sarah, Bessie works in a match factory run by a greedy tyrant. Enola follows clues that lead her from the dregs of society to the top. She even meets her brother, Sherlock Holmes himself, who has a vexing case that turns out to be related to Enola’s case.
The stakes rise when one of Sarah’s friends is murdered and Enola is framed for the crime.
Sherlock tries to free Enola, but somehow the villains plant Enola’s fingerprints on the murder weapon. So he seeks out their mother, an agitating feminist, to help Enola escape from prison.
Time is running out, however. Can Enola and Sherlock solve both cases before more people are killed?
ENOLA HOLMES 2 is an exciting and fun mystery adventure with enough nods to Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories to satisfy all but the most discerning fan. Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill both do terrific jobs as Enola and Sherlock Holmes, though Sherlock is a more athletic version of the iconic detective here.
ENOLA HOLMES 2 contains strong moral elements about exposing corruption in government and big business and protecting the weak. It also promotes noblesse oblige, the biblical and conservative ideal that requires rich and powerful people to help and protect the community, the poor and needy around them. Finally, one scene contains strong and delightful metaphorical references to the Holy Trinity and Jesus Christ.
However, this positive content is marred by a woke cast of actors of African descent in what was a white culture, the culture of Victorian England. The film also has a strong revisionist history in that it assumes that the urge to reform society and correct injustices is purely liberal and left-wing. In fact, conservative political and economic theory sometimes recognizes the need to push through reforms and correct serious injustices. The mistreatment of female workers, including teenage girls and children, in London’s match factories was one such injustice.
ENOLA HOLMES 2 also has strong feminist references. However, they are tempered by a delightful romance between Enola and a young high-society reformer in the House of Lords. The film also contains an implicit attack on grand government corruption.
Overall, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for older children regarding the Netflix production of ENOLA HOLMES 2, which also contains heavy violence.
