Knives Out has its twists and turns at every corner, and dares the audience into questioning what they're seeing in front of their very eyes. Nothing is ever as straightforward as it seems, and Johnson is never satisfied with settling for a by-the-numbers and generic whodunit. He chooses to keep us delightfully bewildered and encapsulated with a cracking rollercoaster of a movie which is literally fun for the whole family.Each and every cast member lends their own personality to the piece, with passion and gusto.
I've never been this entertained by a movie because the actors did such an incredible job.Daniel Craig is not an Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple. There is also a bit of a mix with Peter Sellers from Pink Panther at times. Still, this movie is fun, as all the pieces fit together nicely in the end. All the actors playing the dysfunctional family give their best. I think that Marta, the nurse, has the funniest weakness in all whodunnit movies I have seen. I had hated Johnsons performance in Star Wars, but this movie is a hit.
This flim is just confusing.I have been struggling to understand why this movie is rated so highly. The cast is great and they do a good job with what they are given. That being said, the whodunit part is poorly made, and I choose to believe that was intentional. Perhaps it's my fault for going in expecting a Jessica Fletcher, Hercule Poirot or Sherlock Holmes type story. I was disappointed by the clues, reveals, as well as the ending.
Featuring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans and Ana de Armas Knives Out is a thriller from Rian Jhonson. It picks up slowly and keeps you engaged throughout the movie with intriguing story line. The twist at the end is awesome. The whole taking and acting was top notch. A must watch for thriller movie lovers.
Riam Jhonson with huge cast has delivered a perfect thriller which keeps the audience glued to the screen. The plot is intriguing and makes audiences guess who did what. The twists were absolutely fantastic and thrilling. Though movie starts slowly, it slowly picks up and shows us what the director is capable of. Don't miss the movie if you really love this genre.
Charming in every regard. Spot on performances by each and every member of the stellar ensemble. I didn’t know Craig had this in him...great respect for his mastery of a role that is not at all easy. He was over the top exactly the right amount. The comedic nuances and little bits of business here and there as well as the solid whodunit core should ensure the longevity of this delight. Well worth the viewers time and the ticket price.
When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombay dies just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc arrives at his estate to investigate. From's Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff,Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self serving lies to uncover the truth behind Thrombey's umtimely demise.
Knives Out is a captivating and thrilling mystery drama and was a joy to see. The movie starts and for the first ten minutes was not at all interesting then the real mystery kicks in and Daniel Craig's accent in this movie is my only complaint as it was annoying and unauthentic in parts. The main characters are funny and entertaining throughout and give you a truly enjoyable cinema experience. Chris Evans' character makes you laugh at his sick and twisted jokes and really bumps the movie up a notch with his inclusion. Knives out is the perfect movie to watch if you want to test your brain.
This movie have everything. It is a mystery that in spite of telling you how it happened pretty early on, keeps the tension going by expanding how and why everything happens, with twists that are incredibly hard to predict. The acting is great, and Daniel Craig represents an imposing, but at times comedic detective.This movie is the all-star cast to be front and center, mainly because of the marketing campaign, but I was pleasantly surprised by the role given to Ana de Armas.she was cute and we'll acting. Overall knives out movie is awesome.
The film was so poorly made and the ending wasn't even a surprise. There was no character development and it all seemed useless. There was no big plot twist and I just left the cinema feeling disappointed.Also, Daniel Craig had that awful accent that made him sound absolutely ridiculous.
In Knives Out, Director Rian Johnson embraces the murder mystery genre wholesale and delivers a twisty-turner thriller that's both wildly entertaining and very funny. A superlative cast, witty screenplay, and brilliantly quirky production design are three of this movie's standout qualities. Daniel Craig, complete with Southern Gothic accent, and Ana de Armas are the leads, but they're surrounded by a cast of supporting actors performing at the top of their game.
Knives Out is a not a film as much as a symphony where each instrument is tuned to the beat of the conductor. Each frame is carefully orchestrated and composed to perfection. The dialogue is metered and spoken with a contemporary Shakespearean beat.The cast not only fill their respective roles superbly, but embody their characters in a manner that appears nothing less than natural. Daniel Craig's performance as Benoit Blanc is only bested by Ana de Armas' embodiment of Marta Cabrera. Any reservations one may have about the choice of director, Rian Johnson, must be set aside.
Knives out is full of interesting characters who are played by strong and well established Hollywood veterans. We have Christopher Plummer. Don Johnson. Jemmi Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Toni Colette and of course Daniel Craig, ohhhh Daniel Craig who created an extraordinary character who I hope to see more of and with the huge sucess of Knives Out this might be quite possible. Other played their roles great too, Anna de Armas, Lakeith Stanefield and many others complemented the rest of the cast really well. The setting of the movie transports you in time, it was a very clever choice of a place for an action to take place in. Creaky stairs, period Victorian house was a clever nod to the era in which brilliant Agatha Christie's books were written in. The movie takes inspirations from her novels and does a pretty good job at it.
This movie is entertaining, funny and at times thrilling. The story is smart and the editing is crisp. Everyone in the movie acted fantastically. Special mention goes to my all-time favourite Chris Evans (frankly he was the main reason I went to see this movie). He was amazing in the character of Hugh.Not only was he an absolute brat but he really is coming out of his shell as our beloved Captain America. Jamie Lee Curtis and Tonny Collet are amazing in their respective roles. The story has glimpses of Agatha Christie but it is fresh in its own way.
Knives out movie is pretty damn good. It's a classic who-done-it crime and detective story set in modern day 2019. It's directed beautifully and the cinematography is on point. And it's actually very funny, which I don't think the marketing really shows.The performances in this movie are fantastic, especially by Bond himself, Daniel Craig. He carries this movie and honestly his character is an absolute joy to watch. The rest of the cast is great as well, notable performances from Ana De Armas and Chris Evans.The narrative and writing is also very well done by Rian Johnson. It's nice to see him doing films of his own instead of big franchise movies.
Knives Out is an enjoyable murder-mystery, both fresh and classic at the same time. Strong points include beautiful art direction and a fabulous ensemble cast ,Daniel Craig is particularly fun as well as the mystery plot itself, which kept most of audience guessing the entire time.Chris Evans just lacks short of matching up to De Armas but does an outstanding job as the spoiled Playboy Ransom. Jamie lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer and other artists do a good job in their Small roles.Knives Out is one movie made for everyone not just the regular thriller fans.
In the deliciously entertaining Knives Out, Johnson goes back to his roots with an updated homage to the Agatha Christie whodunnits he loved as a child, and to those “cheekily self-aware” screen adaptations in which Peter Ustinov would lead an all-star cast through a labyrinthine murder mystery.The setting is a gothic pile in modern-day New England where crime-writer Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) has recently capped his 85th birthday celebrations by dying dramatically in his attic study. It looks like an open-and-shut suicide, but could one of Harlan’s variously leechy family members (witheringly described as a bunch of “self-made over-achievers”) have slit his throat? After all, the old man spent the evening settling old scores and doing what?- worth finding out!!
What an excellent film by Rian Johnson; definitely feels like the film he was destined to make. Writing that is slick as hell, sublime performances (most notably Daniel Craig who brings his A-game in a wonderfully charismatic turn), superb editing and wonderfully atmospheric music - all tied together by masterful direction. Will probably be among the most fun you have at a theatre this year and fans of Agatha Christie and old murder mystery stories will have plenty to love here - a nostalgically entertaining time!
When a crime novelist dies just after his 85th Birthday, an inquisitive detective arrives at his estate to investigate.He soon shifts to a web of red herrings and self serving lies to uncover the truth behind the writer's untimely death.Knives Out has a pofwer packed flow of performers and the beautifully casted protagonist ensuring that this movie elevates from being a murder mystery to a thrill.
Keeping a film’s secrets, when they’re as cunningly guarded as they are in the star-spangled whodunit Knives Out, isn’t just a pressing responsibility for a critic – it’s a cinch. Beyond its waspish wit, a dastardly roll-call of suspects and Daniel Craig’s dapper efforts as our presiding sleuth, the film gives nothing away until the bitter end, thanks to a head-spinning tricksiness of plotting that even Agatha Christie might have conceded was rather ingenious.The setting is a gothic pile in modern-day New England where crime-writer Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) has recently capped his 85th birthday celebrations by dying dramatically in his attic study.

Craig is delightful—I love the excitement in his voice when he figures things out late in the film—but some of the cast gets lost. It’s inevitable with one this big, but if you’re going to “Knives Out” for a specific actor or actress, be aware that it’s a large ensemble piece and your fave may get short shrift. Unless your favorite is Ana de Armas, who is really the heart of the movie, allowing Johnson to imbue “Knives Out” with some wonderful political commentary. The Thrombeys claim to love Marta, even if they can’t remember which South American country she comes from, and Don Johnson gets a few razor sharp scenes as the kind of guy who rants about immigration
