There are some movies that are entertaining, then there are a chosen few movies that truly entertain you. KNIVES OUT is one of those chosen few. Watching this movie was one of the best times I've had at a theater in several years. Not only is it a great movie, but it is so much fun to play along and try to figure everything out.
This is a classic "whodunnit" flick with a fantastic cast thrown in to make it even better. The characters are all fun to watch and follow, and the plot is as thick and juicy as a porterhouse steak. The dialogue is witty, the pacing is quick and steady, and the music adds that little extra to push the whole thing into glorious, wonderful absurdity in the best way possible.
There are so many twists and turns in this film that you'll feel like you are on a roller coaster. The good news is there are enough clues to give you a decent shot at figuring out most of the mystery, but this one goes so deep that you'll still be shocked and surprised by the conclusion. (Even though you'll already know what happened!)
This is one of those rare movies that you are going to want to see twice. You'll love the mystery the first time, and the second time, you'll want to try to find all of the clues along the way. The great news is that this movie is completely worth the price of admission, twice.
