Knives Out


Emma Galesic, Editor

Knives Out came out in theaters on November 27, 2019, and stars Ana De Armas, Danie Craig, Chris Evans, and Christopher Plummer. The film was written and directed by Rian Johnson and is a PG-13 rated drama and mystery thriller.  

An ordinary family gathering takes a turn for the worst when an old mystery writer is murdered in his own home. Following the casualty, a master detective is sent to investigate the relatives and people at the crime scene. A series of strange events and misconceptions lead the investigation in complete chaos and takes a mysterious turn in finding the murderer.

This movie kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time! The acting was done wonderfully to make you fall in love or hate each character and the ending left me completely in shock for the rest of the night. Knives Out is certainly my new all-time favorite movie. The suspense build-up makes the entire film worth the 2 hours and ten minutes wait!

Compared to other mystery movies, Knives Out is the best, because it builds up the suspense perfect while throwing in some humor along the way, and by the end, you think that you know who the murderer is, but then it completely surprises you and changes your mind about the character that you loved! In other mystery movies, it is either very cheesy or not humorous at all and seriously boring. But, when it comes to Knives Out, it will make you look down on every other movie because of how great it is!

I would definitely recommend spending the time to watch this movie, and you will never regret it! The acting and the script are both amazing to result in a hilarious film to watch with your friends and family.
