Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, the extremely anticipated second installment in Rian Johnson‘s burgeoning Benoit Blanc detective sequence, premiered on the Toronto Worldwide Movie Competition and, appropriately, it killed. As the primary spherical of opinions pour in, critics are loving not simply Daniel Craig’s return as Blanc, however Johnson’s stellar hand at placing collectively one more madcap cast of murder suspects. (Critically, this movie is stacked with expertise.)

You may see what critics are saying beneath, and don’t fear, the excerpts are spoiler-free. There will likely be little or no revealed in the way in which of plot, however a complete revealed in reward for one more satisfying whodunnit from Johnson.

Mike Ryan, Uproxx:

Glass Onion is simply a good time watching a film. It’s a uncommon film (particularly at a movie competition the place I’ve locations I’ve to be) during which I needed it have been longer. I might have gladly spent extra time with these characters, performed by actors who’re all clearly having an exquisite time. I already miss them. Make extra films like this. What enjoyable.

Caryn James, BBC:

The place the unique relied on the oddball household members-turned-murder suspects being investigated by Benoit Blanc, Craig’s hilariously over-the-top world-famous detective, Glass Onion depends on the plot’s secrets and techniques, lies, misunderstandings and mistaken identities. Crammed with scrumptious cameos and loaded with extra comedian moments than the earlier movie.

Alison Willmore, Vulture:

Films going down in the course of the early days of our international acquaintanceship with the novel coronavirus have tended to all really feel the identical, as a result of so many people have been simply sitting at dwelling, feeling horrifying and remoted and terribly bored. However the characters in Glass Onion aren’t the type that may really feel like they’d be subjected to those self same guidelines, even those who think about themselves nominally extra accountable. They’re principally doing a brief, and really high-end, model of forming a pod, accelerating proper into the dramas that accompany the meltdown of so many comparable preparations.

Owen Gleiberman, Variety:

Is “Glass Onion” a greater film than the primary “Knives Out”? Not essentially. Nevertheless it’s a much bigger, showier, much more elaborately multi-faceted shell-game thriller. Craig has discovered let his wry efficiency sneak up on you once more, and the suspects hover in a tasty zone between poisonous and sympathetic.

Benjamin Lee, The Guardian:

Johnson’s extra extravagant and sometimes indulgent sequel will seemingly discover those that desire it to the unique, it’s so full of so a lot that it’ll absolutely show extra enjoyable to those that respect getting extra bang for his or her buck. It’s arduous to not have enjoyable when Johnson pulls the strings, I simply want he’d not pulled fairly so many and fairly so arduous.

Kate Erbland, IndieWire:

Johnson needn’t fear a few sophomore droop, as a result of whereas “Glass Onion” holds some resemblance to his 2019 smash hit (stacked casts, lavish areas, Daniel Craig having the time of his goddamn life), this sequel is zippily and zanily its personal thrill trip, and Johnson can’t churn these infants out quick sufficient.

John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter:

This image presents extra motion, extra scrumptious comeuppances, extra daring design and some genuinely shocking cameos only for good measure. But it doesn’t endure from the standard “give ’em the identical factor, however extra of it” bloat widespread in sequels to shock hits. Its ensemble is extra different than Knives‘, and its critique of the clueless wealthy extra related to our age.

Kristy Puchko, Mashable:

Rian Johnson is single-handedly reviving the whodunnit style. Certain, Kenneth Branagh’s been churning out Hercule Poirot variations busting on the seams with large names. However the place Branagh’s detective films are fondly trying again on the previous by way of a tediously romantic (and self-indulgent) lens, Johnson’s authentic tales use the framework of an Agatha Christie novel to create one thing exhilaratingly new, with recent surprises, a gleeful wit, and a vigorous social commentary.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Thriller premieres December 23 on Netflix.
