‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ Movie Review: Daniel Craig Gives People What They Want

The tongue-in-cheek whodunnit has plenty of room for excess, including the potential for a knockout cast. Writer/director Rian Johnson did exactly that with 2019 knives out, which put actor Daniel Craig at the center of its antics. His first sequel in a planned trilogy gives the audience what they’re looking for and does it auspiciously, though it doesn’t bring many surprises. Netflix‘s Crystal Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is a worthy successor.
