Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022, D: Rian Johnson) -- The Spoiler Reviews Thread





Synopsis:
Benoit Blanc returns to peel back the layers in a new Rian Johnson whodunit. This fresh adventure finds the intrepid detective at a lavish private estate on a Greek island, but how and why he comes to be there is only the first of many puzzles. Blanc soon meets a distinctly disparate group of friends gathering at the invitation of billionaire Miles Bron for their yearly reunion. Among those on the guest list are Milesí former business partner Andi Brand, current Connecticut governor Claire Debella, cutting-edge scientist Lionel Toussaint, fashion designer and former model Birdie Jay and her conscientious assistant Peg, and influencer Duke Cody and his sidekick girlfriend Whiskey. As in all the best murder mysteries, each character harbors their own secrets, lies and motivations. When someone turns up dead, everyone is a suspect. Returning to the franchise he began, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Rian Johnson writes and directs Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and assembles another all-star cast that includes a returning Daniel Craig alongside Edward Norton, Janelle MonŠe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline with Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.
Runtime: 2 hours 19 minutes

Seeing this on Friday. Yay! Can’t wait. I can’t believe they are limiting its release to one week only.

I was really hoping this would be playing in my area. Unfortunately the closest is Milwaukee.

Saw it this afternoon. I wasn't digging it at first because of some over-the-top stuff, but once the layers of this onion start peeling back I was all in. Man... Janelle Monae kills it here. What a great performance. All of the cast is really good.

Kate Hudson and Madelyn Cline in those bikinis.

This has some of the most random cameos.

Went to the matinee this afternoon, a good number of people turned out for it. so it was awesome getting to watch it with audience reaction.

I had fun watching it. It's paced well, dividing the movie into three segments kept it from dragging for me. There's a lot of funny cameos
Spoiler:
Angela Lansbury AND Stephen Sondheim
and in-jokes
Spoiler:
Ed Norton dressed as Frank TJ Mackie from Magnolia
.

I wasn't as impressed by Knives Out as others, but this follows the same formula, including the satisfying ending.

Yea, there were a lot of people at my screening as well. Probably the most I've seen for a non-Marvel movie in a while. A lot of them were in their teens and twenties.

I just got back from a 7:30pm show. It was a pretty full auditorium tonight. I thought it was good, but not as good as the 1st movie. But, it was still entertaining and was worth seeing in the theater. This felt like a theatrical movie and not some the usual TV movie junk shot specifically for Netflix.

Daniel Craig was great again as Benoit Blanc. His dialogue and interactions with the group were so well done and Craig killed it playing the character again. I think I read a blurb about it somewhere, but I guess Blanc is gay and that cameo of Hugh Grant was supposed to be a "boyfriend" of his.

The 1st hour I was a little lukewarm on the premise, but once Bautista died, things got moving and became more interesting. For me personally, I didn't think the supporting cast in this movie was as strong as the 1st movie. Although I agree that Janelle Monae was great.

I laughed at the cameo of "Angie" Lansbury. What surprised me the most was that Johnson actually wrote the pandemic into this movie. at Ethan Hawke giving everyone a oral "vaccination" "No, you're good."

8 out of 10 for me. 4 stars. Since this is coming to Netflix in less than 4 weeks, I'm sure most here won't see it in a theater. But, I think the way it's filmed, it's a high quality production and worth seeing if you have playing near you.

Does your theatre have comfortable seats? If so, go for it. I remember the movie as having lots of wide and medium shots against backgrounds full of detail, so although it's not a Marvel kind of movie, I still think it has a lot going on visually that if you saw it, you wouldn't feel like you were just watching a TV show.

Got to see this yesterday in a theater I had not been in yet, with super comfy reclining seats.
Settled in and loved the shit out of it, each of the 3 phases were great, the setup was great, I straight up giggled at the opening the boxes sequence, esp the Dave Bautista sequence.

Can't wait to watch it again on Netflix, I think it was worthy of the big screen for sure.

6/10

Dude ...6/10 and you loved it? You must be really hard to impress.

Caught this on Friday and like many others, the theater was close to packed. Fortunate to live in an area that got it I guess. In terms of laughs, I thought it was better than the first one.

I'm not following. Is this some inside joke on reviewing?
