On his 85th birthday, acclaimed crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead in his room with his throat slit. Just as authorities are about to dismiss the tragedy as suicide due to the lack of evidence to prove otherwise, Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) arrives at the scene to conduct his own investigation. Soon, it is revealed that all of Thrombey’s family have a reason to murder the family’s patriarch. Will Marta (Ana de Armas), the dead man’s caregiver and most trusted confidante, be able to help identify who the killer is? Written and directed by Rian Johnson.~Phil Griffin

This steelbook is honestly one of the nicest steelbooks I've seen yet, and I own a lot. It comes with a plastic protective "sleeve" that has the cast name, rotten tomato logo, and movie info on so that the actual steelbook itself maintains the art. I've included a few pictures that barely do justice to how nice it looks.
it was open, the disks weren't damaged but the digital code was used way back in March. Very disappointed. First time this has happened to me
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
So good I didn't care whodunnit

Just buy and enjoy. I missed the release over Xmas, and so was really looking to it coming out in the Spring. And with the home isolation we've been doing since Spring Break, this movie has been a godsend.
I love how the characters are cross-type and overblown. Toni Colette is just genius--tho I just want to tell her to leave town. Chris Evans is sooo believable as a rich, entitled jerk. Makes me want to smack him or key his beloved car.
Daniel Craig. So I'm from Oregon, not from the South, and thus I have to be careful how I say this - respectfully. I do have friends from places like Bama, Tennessee and the Carolinas, so I know my way around the speech patterns. So let's just say this action-hero Brit is cross-cast to play a "type" of the Southern Gentleman from an older era. I enjoyed it. IMHO, he does it with the drawl, slower speech, and other colloquialisms that make for a fun ride. Sure, it is going to offend some good folk below the Mason-Dixon line, but he ain't s'posed to be *real*, y'all.
Ana de Armas--we will be seeing lots of her in the future. In this film she is meant to play someone caught up in and overwhelmed by the family dysfunction. There are probably a few too many moments where she plays big-eyed "shock" at the insanity of it all, but perhaps she was cast in the role because of her ability to pull this off.
Extra stars to the writers to tossing immigration policy in the middle of this Northeastern WASP family and town. Made for some awkward moments, but...hey...just turn on the TV news channels
"Knives Out" Cuts a Clever Agatha Christie-style S
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
The parlor whodunnit made classic mystery by Dame Agatha Christie last century is a tougher feat to pull off than you would think. Maybe that's why there are so many remakes of Christie stories in theaters and streaming on line. Original concoctions that can compare to Christie are as rare as albino tigers, so it is especially gratifying to run across one in the Hollywood jungle. "Knives Out" is just such a creature. Writer-director Rian Johnson, whose last film "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" caused such a disturbance in the Force, seems like he is having fun again putting a cast that includes Jamie Leigh Curtis, Toni Collette, Chris Evans, Christopher Plummer, Michael Shannon, and a drolly funny Daniel Craig through a maze of mystery tropes that both pay homage to the classics while bringing the genre into contemporary relevance. Newcomer Ana de Armas walks away with the movie as a domestic servant who knows where all the bodies are buried. The newly released blu ray makes for a terrific night of home viewing.
First of all, this movie has a terrific cast. It's up with today's political environment, although it is not necessarily a political movie, they add just the right amount to make it appropriate for today's society. The writing is quite good and the character development is great. It has such a great variety of characters within the family that anyone could easily identify with having in their own family. It's very funny and keeps your interest piqued throughout. I highly recommend it! It's a very fun, murder mystery with multiple twists that you don't entirely see coming. You may think you know, but then they get you! Enjoy. :)
Is it predictable? Yes. Is it cliche'? Yes. Is it absolutely wonderful? YES YES YES! I loved the characters and Daniel Craig is fascinating in this movie. It may not be for everyone but if you like a good old fashioned who-done-it with a great cast, you should love this movie. Something else about this movie; it made me remember how good Don Johnson really is... I think people tend to forget that. I want to see him in more movies like this because he did an outstanding job in a cast of outstanding actors who also did outstanding jobs.
