Benoit Blanc can be back as often as he wants, in my opinion, and it seems Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig are interested in doing as several more Knives Out Mysteries. The second, Glass Onion (a title that fits the movie, but I'm sad doesn't riff on the original's), assembles a cast of potential murderers on a private island so we can have a nice old go at the filthy rich and other influential jackasses - Kate Hudson is particularly funny, but Edward Norton likely to most relevant to today - during the height of the pandemic, no less. It's kind of a modern And Then There Were None situation. What works so well with Blanc is that he seems a character out of time, an Agatha Christie character somehow existing in our modern world, a little befuddled by it, or perhaps playing Columbo to the rich pricks he's constantly investigating. It's fun and charming. Lots of twists and turns, turning the closed room mystery on its head, often by having the camera/editing lie to the audience, or rather, cut around clues that would be too revealing too early. In a sense, we're characters in the room, overhearing this bit of business and not that one, but all will eventually be revealed and make absolute sense. Johnson pays off lots of little details, actually and thematically, and additional viewing will probably highlight more. And that absolutely cracking ending!

Oh, Rian Johnson can make a few more of those if it were up to me :)
There's no single non-entertaining moment in 2:20h, how many streaming flicks will give you that?

First one was a bit grander and old-fashioned in a lovable way, so much is clear.

All the elements that made the first one great fun are present: an all-star cast, a clever whodunit scenario, an unlikely female hero, and more than one revealing plot twist. But spoiler the story feels unworthy of the “world’s greatest detective.”

I preferred the pure escapism of the first one; I could do without all the boring social media references and 'Elon Musk' reminders. I watch this stuff to get away from all that crap!
Still - it was entertaining enough. Just would have preferred less contemporary satire...

I found the movie pretty entertaining, mostly due to the quirky performance by Daniel Craig, but the ending is so utterly stupid and makes the "heroes" of the picture into awful, despicable people, and that includes Benoit Blanc!

Think about it: They spoiler just to stick it to a rich dude! What kind of "justice" is that? That ending made me furious! It demonstrates just how shallow Rian Johnson really is - that he did not understand how that ending will backfire in the eyes of most educated people. The movie is slick, but really stupid when you step back and look at it closely.

A childish scenario that prevented me from participating in determining who the killer was?


The first part was dazzling and surprising for those who watched the movie and the fans of movie type of: Who is the killer? The first part presented a group of well-known stars in a different format than the roles they played in previous acting works.

In the second part, I face many challenges: Will the second part be better than the first part, or at least equal to it? Secondly, yes it presents us with a group of stars with beautiful charisma on the screen.

This time, the events of the film take place during the pandemic. This time, the main investigator, the hero of the story, is facing deadly boredom due to him staying at home all the time due to the pandemic and the lockdown. This is what drives him, without hesitation, to participate in one of the games organized by a rich person. This game is to solve a crime, hypothetically a crime that didn't happen in reality. This invitation reaches the investigator and some close friends of this rich person, but during their arrival to the place of the invitation, we begin to discover many mysterious things.

The first is how the friends get to know each other. Each character is completely different from the other character, a rich person, a YouTuber model, a scientist, in addition to a political figure and an investigator. We begin to discover, by starting the conversation from the beginning, that there is a suspicious or unhealthy past for each character, but the most important thing is that it is far from the game and the hypothetical investigation. We begin to discover real crimes in the place of Al-Daghwa, and now everyone is a suspect, and through the story we will learn who the culprit is.

Yes, I am almost certain that the characters of the second part will continue on the same path as the movie of the first part. What I did not like about this movie. Yes, they showed us the motives and reasons, but I could not get behind any motive in them, and in these types of stories, the most beautiful thing is that it shows that you made a mistake about who the murderer is, not Only in deceiving you, but showing you that your deductions were wrong, makes you doubt one or two or three people, and in the end you discover that all your doubts were wrong. In this part, I was not able to doubt anyone.

Yes, it is true, there are many good plots in the scenario, and there is good manipulation, but I cannot be certain that I doubt any character, as if I was waiting and seeing the events for the vision to appear. I could not participate in the game, which is very important in this type of movie. In addition to clarifying things, there were many coincidences to the point of being so ridiculous. The only reason some mysteries and some indicators were discovered is that the character, for some reason, was present at the right time and the right place without any actual intelligence to find the information.

I don't know. I feel that my feelings were confused towards the end of the movie. I would almost describe it as childish ending. the actions of some characters led to the flattening of this movie. The first part was so amazing that it cannot be described.
