Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery | Ratings & Reviews

Knives Out sequel leans into broader comedy and quite a different tone, but remains a silly, clever, and totally riveting whodunnit that rewards close attention and demands an immediate rewatch.

"Monae will widely be considered the MVP, and that’s valid, but there’s not a single weak link here..."

"It’s hard not to have fun when Johnson pulls the strings, I just wish he’d not pulled quite so many and quite so hard."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"What makes it a more satisfying movie is that it sits with its characters more rather than immediately showing off their decay."


"This sequel is zippily and zanily its own thrill ride, and Johnson can’t churn these babies out fast enough."


"Craig's performance is wily and joyful, and the film's biggest flaw is that there is too little of him..."


"A movie this good deserves the beauty of a big screen and the energy of a packed house."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Misdirection, callbacks and disarming comic asides all (work) in concert to keep the viewer constantly tickled and agog."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"The more expansive story makes this sequel feel less tightly wound or exhilarating than its predecessor."

Bloody DisgustingBloody Disgusting

"A razor-sharp but pandering yarn."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"His intricate craftsmanship is a pleasure to watch in motion, though a bad symptom of sequel-itis stalks the film: Johnson... has decided to go bigger."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"While it’s not quite as light on its feet in terms of the plotting... it’s an immensely enjoyable movie which is at least as funny as the first outing, if not more."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"Craig has figured out how to let his wry performance sneak up on you all over again..."


"(It has) more action, more delicious comeuppances, more daring design and a few genuinely surprising cameos just for good measure."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Round two of the Benoit Blanc cinematic universe is bigger, twistier, more lavish, and as good – if not better – than the first go around."


"What sets this mystery apart is how Bron’s unimaginable wealth... becomes a queasier spectacle as the film goes on."
