If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free reviews, please follow my blog @ https://www.msbreviews.com Knives Out has been shown in numerous festivals, and it received massive acclaim in literally every single one of them. Therefore, its hype grew more and more until its wide release date. Before the film, I can't deny that I was indeed affected by the whole “a whodunnit like you haven't seen in years.” I went into the theater with high expectations, not only due to the festival praise but due to its jaw-dropping cast. It's uncommon to possess such a renowned ensemble and deliver a “bad” movie, e... read the rest.

This is a crime thriller that's been a long time in the making. Mystery fans rejoice: ‘Knives Out' is an impeccable cinematic achievement, laced with sardonic wit, division and conflict, and of course a perplexing puzzle. This is easily one of the most fun films of 2019 - it's both a brilliant piece of entertainment and beautifully crafted enigma. Sit back, relax, and try to crack the code. - Charlie David Page Read Charlie's full article... https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/article/review-knives-out-a-whodunnit-worthy-of-agatha-christies-hercule-poirot

I did not think that Last Jedi was a very good movie, but I have always been a fan of Rian Johnson. And honestly? Knives Out is a strong contender for his best work yet. I have never seen a whodunnit like this before. Seeing this in a theatre was the poppy-poppy-paper of movie-going experiences, because I so enjoyed that. Final rating:★★★★ - Very strong appeal. A personal favourite.

'That certainly not what I was expecting.' Whodunit? Rian Johnson. Why? To subvert the tropes of yet another sub-genre... properly! As divisive as it was, I neither loved nor hated the love-it-or-hate-it The Last Jedi. Maybe because I'm not a huge fan of the much-beloved saga. But I can give you a quick opinion of what I thought about it anyway. The first half almost turned me off completely: tons of lame jokes and out-of-character moments that indicate that Johnson's biggest concern was to subvert expectations and nothing but. The second half of the film was way better. It pro... read the rest.

“This case is like a donut with a hole in the middle of a donut hole. Actually, it's a donut within a donut's hole.” ‘Knives Out' subverted my expectations...in a good way. A smartly written whodunit movie that manages to be both humorous and classy. The kind of murder mystery that never fails to entertain. Pleasing both cinephiles and mainstream audiences. Perfectly balance, as all things should be. It basically pulls a Hitchcock on us. Rian Johnson is a great director, but at times has silly ideas. On the other hand, when given the right material I think he's a great director and wr... read the rest.

Fun little murder-mystery starts off great, kind of loses a little steam in the middle, before rebounding nicely at the end. Fine performances all around, though especially Daniel Craig (reminded me why he was also great in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo even with a starkly different tone). Also makes me remember Rian Johnson is a fine filmmaker (loved Brick). 4.0/5

Caving to popular opinion and seeing this was a bad decision; Daniel Craig's accent is the only interesting aspect, and you can get that from the trailer.

This film had quite the rewatch value, keeping a consistent, yet entertaining thrill ride. Rian Johnson's original tale is strikingly filled with a talented ensemble, old-school-mystery-thrills and a sharp envisioning. Knives Out keeps the audience on their toes and brings a surprising delight towards it's conclusion.

A great movie, entertaining and it has you playing detective right away. Great for all the Columbo wannabees.
