Wonderfully fun, campy ride. Visually interesting with great costuming, bitingly funny. Knives Out encompasses the vibe of a wacky cult classic, except the cult following is more "absolutely everyone ever."

First off, I am surprised to see Daniel's Craig Talking in Kentucky Accent. The name Benoit Blanc sounds silly but looks like it ain't silly at all.
From the start till end, the film is relentlessly entertaining. The plot is clever, authentic & enjoyable. **Every little knives (family) in the movie are up for bigger cut**-the mystery progresses naturally & every source of suspense is carefully placed. Should say, thought-provoking one.
The message about family aesthetics marked less by blood, more by your behaviour suits well for the movie & from learning viewpoint, it's a practical scenario as well.

A smartly written whodunit movie that manages to be both humorous and classy. The kind of murder mystery that never fails to entertain. Pleasantly surprised with this film. The plot is very twisty so you have to really pay attention to follow it.
Jamie Lee Curtis is excellent and Daniel Craig does a good job in a quite different role. Definitely worth seeing.

This film sincerely has one of the most riveting plot lines for a Mystery I’ve seen in a long time. It really keeps you hooked to your seat, which is a difficult feat considering the culprit of the crime is disclosed at the beginning of the narrative. It’s not your classic ‘whodunnit’ which makes it so much more interesting to see how the storyline unfolds. The cast for this film is absolutely gorgeous and each one expresses true talent in becoming their character, immersive in the role. Not to mention Chris Evans not being portrayed as do-gooder Captain America is refreshing for a change as he adapts to his role as a rebellious, trust fund baby quite well in the film. There is deliberate, conscious thought at work here which comes to light especially at the end of the film when they reveal how everything is implicitly linked. The cinematography, the acting, the dialogue, the music, and each element of the film has an intention and it really makes you wonder how the director and screenwriter(s) did it.

The circumstances surrounding the death of crime novelist Harlan Thrombey are mysterious, but there's one thing that renowned Detective Benoit Blanc knows for sure -- everyone in the wildly dysfunctional Thrombey family is a suspect. Now, Blanc must sift through a web of lies and red herrings to uncover the truth.
This movie was so good and one of the best mystery movies I have seen to this day. The twists and turns of the whole film just makes you pay even more attention than you already were. I am excited to watch it again, so I can spot more things I missed.
- I absolutely loved all of the details throughout the movie that you would only catch if you were paying close attention. For example, when all of them are being interrogated everyone has different point of views of who was where the night of his bday party/ death.
- The writing in this film is great from the plot twists, to the humor, to the drama. Especially how Harlan planned Marta's "way out" of the murder itself to save her from her fate of prison.
- An amazing cast. No other way to describe it, I loved it
- There is sm going on at one time that you just can't look away from the screen because everything is so interesting.
- The subtle humor throughout is so funny. For example: Richards subtle jokes throughout are great.
- The aesthetic of the film is really pretty and the house is just so cool I want to live there.
- The ending was every thing oh my god. The way Blanc caught Ransom by the smallest of details including Marta's "confusion".
- It felt a bit long in some parts, and like it dragged on, but I see why it was necessary.
Overall: 4 1/2 out of 5

Very well-made film, a couple of fascinating oddball characters, and a plot you can’t guess the direction of!

Excellent fun who did it film. I enjoyed that dark humour and mystery with a good level of suspense. Definitely worth a watch
Like reading a good book that you don't want to put down slick and unpredictable! Not the cast I would have picked but it seemed to work..even Daniel Craig's accent..I guess

I don’t really get how people were so invested in this whodunnit. Halfway through I was just waiting for the ending.
I went into this film with the most recent murder on the orient express in mind, I was disappointed! I think I may have set my expectations to high, the film had a great assembled cast but just didn’t have that spark for me.

I absolutely adore this movie! It was a stimulating movie beginning to end, with the classic who done it theme. From the; characters/actors, set design, plot and the overall execution it was great! I loved seeing how small details fell into place and how the mystery itself played out. If you want a fun, well paced mystery this is a must watch.

Finally got round to watching this and I wasn’t disappointed. A classic whodunnit with an all star cast, great mystery and lots of fun humour.

Been hearing a lot of hype on Knives out and it shows up a lot when I open the Friendspire app. HOLY SHIT that movie was so good and all the twists and turns were unreal. Funny movie too. Lives up to the 97% tomato meter rating
