Knives Out Review: Daniel Craig and Cast shine in this Murder Mystery!

The Hit:

Just to get this out of the way, Rian Johnson literally split the Star Wars fandom in half with his directing with The Last Jedi. After watching this mystery, he shines and excels and I soon realize that maybe he should do these types (non-mega blockbuster) of movies without the fear of getting so much hate again. 

Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Christopher Plummer, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Riki Lindhome, Edi Patterson, Noah Segan

Pros: Murder mystery movies are hard to talk about without spoiling so I'll try my best. I will say this, the ending turned everything around from what I already fit together on its head and it was glorious. Daniel Craig took me off guard with the accent he uses in the film but after a little while I got used to it and from being a badass in his role of James Bond, I quickly got used to him being a great detective as well. I enjoyed putting the pieces together as much as Daniel's character did and following each persons course of events the night of the murder, really made me ponder who dun it and when a movie makes me think and gets my brain going, it's very exciting. This was a solid cast all around, I could talk to you about every single person but that would take too much of this review. Just know that every single cast member, well, minus one or two (only said a couple of lines) made this movie enjoyable to watch. 

Cons: It's a little slow in the beginning but when it gets traction, it picks up the pace and keeps you focused and intrigued. Like I just talked about, one or two characters didn't do too much of anything but stand there and say a few lines, they could have increased those lines or even not have included them in the movie but that's all I can say. 

I love murder mysteries because it involves the viewers and helps eliminate suspects along with the detective. And if you are wrong, it's awesome seeing why and the how. This movie is great and if that's what you are into then don't miss out. Maybe your own family can relate to a few things throughout, hopefully not murder but other topics mentioned. Thanksgiving can bring about drama in the family, so this film is perfect this holiday season. 

Key Info: Rated PG-13. Genres: Comedy, Crime, Drama

The Verdict:
