Review: Why ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ Is A Must See
Director: Rian Johnson
Cast: Edward Norton, Daniel Craig, Kate Hudson, Janelle Monae, Dave Bautista, Leslie Odom Jr, Kathryn Hahn
Simply put Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is spectacular — from start to finish. The sequel to 2019’s Knives Out made it’s debut at the Toronto International Film Festival and received a rousing round of applause. Director Rian Johnson begged critics and audiences not to spoil plot details online. Here’s what we can say.
Johnson’s script targets the absurdity and stupidity of the rich and famous. Norton plays the mogul, Miles Bron, whose company is involved in scientific research and space travel. Bron invites a group of old friends to be his guests on a private island where they will play a murder mystery game with their host as the victim. Of course, an actual murder must be looming and thankfully detective Benoit Blanc (played by Craig) is back to solve the crime.
Craig, and his saucy southern drawl, steal the show once again, as does Monae who is absolutely phenomenal. She definitely understood the assignment and is the heart of the film.
Pros: Clever dialogue, witty banter and social commentary coupled with interesting plot twists make this one even better than the first.
