Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is entertaining, but the straight forwardness in this film brings down the effectiveness like the first film!!!

Real Rating:

4 Dooooongs

What I Like:

-The acting from this cast is what really makes it entertaining, the dialogue between one another is witty, and I enjoyed Daniel Craig reprising his role as Benoit Blanc, that polite Southern talking detective genius really hits the spot in this mystery film
-I don’t say this much, but I really loved the production design, that modern look in the middle of the island was a pleasant site to watch

The So So:

-What was great about the first film is the complicated non sequitur way of telling a mystery story which made it unique and fun, as for this film it was a little more straight forward with some twists which is fine, but I felt it lost its touch a little bit on the effectiveness of telling a unique mystery story, regardless the conclusion is still fun and satisfying

What I Didn’t Like:

-Like its predecessor, it is heavy handed on why wealthy people are evil, like we get it, just tell the mystery story

Overall:

As I said before, this story of mystery was a little more straightforward than its predecessor. Even though in that regard it does lose its effectiveness of uniqueness, it is still fun and entertaining to watch. The cast is what brings out the entertaining factor, and it comes with the great writing from Rian Johnson. I do enjoy watching Daniel Craig playing detective Benoit Blanc, and wouldn’t mind seeing more of this character and the mystery story it brings!!!
