Student Review New Murder Mystery: Glass Onion


Glass Onion: Knives Out, is a new mystery/crime movie, sequel to Knives Out, this movie can be seen in theaters right now. The movie has made over $15 million in one week, averaging $19,000 per theater. Netflix has bought this movie for $450 million and will be streaming it in the next few weeks. Including outstanding performance from popular actors, such as Madelyn Cline and Daniel Craig, this movie has been raging in popularity. 

Personally, I thought this was a great production and that the acting was phenomenal. Daniel Craig was definitely one of the highlights of the movie. Described as a “legendary detective… enigmatic, drawling sleuth” by “The Guardian.”he was perfect for his role as the detective. The story line was entertaining and never left the watcher bored. The “Glass Onion” was the island it was filmed on and I think the whole modern, rich type of scenery only added to the plot. I thought the best part of the movie was the continuous, building suspense throughout. 

The only flaw the movie had was one part towards the end which was an unclear flashback with two characters in different scenes at the same time which leaves the viewer confused. It was almost as if they added another story overlapping another scene which made it hard to follow. Later the scene makes more sense but in the moment, the viewer is lost and it definitely should have been planned out better. The sense of time is the only thing I would comment negatively about but other than that I thought it was great. 

I would rate this movie a 4.9/5 only because of the flashback, but I think this was overall a really good movie that is definitely worth watching.
