“Knives Out” was a big surprise. A great mystery, comedy-thriller film that will leave you guessing all the way to the film’s conclusion.

When a crime novelist dies just after his 85th birthday, Detective Benoit Blanc, played by Daniel Craig, arrives at his estate to investigate. He quickly sifts through a web of self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind the writer’s untimely demise. 

“Knives Out” had a lot of notable actors in the film that helped bring everything together. With most of the film’s characters being seasoned actors, it was no surprise that this was a great film. 

Jamie Lee Curtis plays Linda Drysdale, Chris Evans plays Ransom Drysdale and Michael Shannon plays Walt Thrombey. They all related to the deceased author.

I like pretty much everything about this film. The dialogue was on-point and the overall tone of the movie was good. I was immersed in the film and eager to find out the film’s shocking conclusion.

I feel like this is a film for people of all ages and definitely a film that you can take your friends and family to see and enjoy. The film is rated PG-13 and honestly it’s one of the best films I’ve seen in awhile.
