Trivia

  • Rian Johnson has described Daniel Craig's character as an "American Poirot". Given that it is a bit ironic that Craig himself isn't American, but British. Although this is oddly in keeping with Poirot, who is Belgian but is traditionally portrayed by an Englishman (Albert Finney, David Suchet, Kenneth Branagh, Peter Ustinov, etc.).

Very disappointing. Not at all what we expected. Worst film we have seen this year. I kept looking at my watch. Couldn't wait for it to be over. Boring on the whole with just a couple of good bits. Thumbs down.

The trailer was more exciting than the movie.

Knives Out is a sendup of twisty murder mysteries with all-star ensemble casts that also loves and respects that silly tradition.

A delicious throwback to the all-star whodunit, this juicy comedy thriller is a treat from start to finish.

This thriller can sometimes be too mechanical — a breezy exercise if not always an emotionally satisfying one — and yet the large cast’s willingness to get on Johnson’s brainy, sprightly wavelength makes this an enjoyable romp.
