Fans have been eagerly anticipating the sequel to Netflix mystery film Knives Out titled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and it’s finally here!
The first one was an absolute banger of a film. From the cast to the plot to the general aesthetic, the whole thing was a modern day Cluedo and we loved every minute of it.
And I’m pleased to report that its sequel is even better.
Yep, in my opinion, they’ve actually outdone the OG flick!
The sequel features an absolutely stacked cast, each of whom absolutely shine in their own ways.
You’ve got good ol’ Daniel Craig returning as well-dressed queer sleuth Benoit Blanc, plus Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.
The absolute stand-out for me is Kate Hudson whose portrayal of disgraced ex-model Birdie Jay had me absolutely howling in the cinema.
What a line-up! (Credit: Netflix)
I’m not going to give anything away, but the story is absolutely gripping and you won’t see the twist coming.
You’ll be spitting out guesses of who the real killer is every step of the way and in the end, you’ll be shocked at how it all unravels.
Here’s the basic rundown: a gang of mates are summoned to their tech billionaire friend’s island for a murder mystery party, joined by the world famous detective Benoit Blanc.
Before long they find themselves thrust into an actual murder mystery when one of them winds up dead.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery has everything a good movie should have: a killer storyline (no pun intended), a mind-blowing plot twist, a divine cast, cheeky humour mixed with tasty drama and a gorg aesthetic.
When it comes to movies I’m usually one and done, as in I watch it once then give it a rest for at least a few years. But I legit plan on rewatching this gem of a movie several times over the holidays as it’s just hit Netflix.
