The film’s positive reviews say it is very entertaining, very fun, even better than the first film, and bad reviews say it is too hard, no restraint.
‘Collider’: Watching this mode of Johnson’s (the film’s director Rian Johnson) work is very interesting, especially this cast is also very funny and amusing. With ‘Glass Onion’ (‘Knives Out 2’ is titled ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’), Johnson proves himself to be a spoiler for the “Supreme Order.
‘TheWrap’: A lot has happened so far in 2019, and ‘Glass Onion’ opens with a new crown epidemic, but what this movie didn’t expect was some genre changers like ‘Bodies, Bodies, Bodies’ and ‘Triangle of Sadness’ to show up. like genre changers emerged and now they are dominant.
‘The Playlist’: The director shows an absolute mastery of his genre, and his superb talent. This film is pure pop entertainment.
‘The Film Stage’: No better than the first one, but almost as enjoyable, which is a remarkable triumph in itself.
‘New York Post’: murderous, confusing, banal.
‘RogerEbert.com’: Very fun, the whole cast is infectious, and you can tell how happy they were making this movie on a Greek island, saying the incredibly witty lines Johnson wrote.
‘Slashfilm’: Rian Johnson has outdone himself with this film.
‘JoBlo’s Movie Network’: Very entertaining, showcasing one of the best casts and scripts for a movie of the year. I’ll keep rewatching this one after it hits Netflix.
‘Knives Out 2’ will be available on Netflix on December 23.
