Boring and predictable .

Worth a watch, well made and entertaining for a Friday evening

Very entertaining and fun .

Ignoring a few things that are very illogical, like a girl who vomits after telling a lie, this movie is engaging.

I am so disappointed, I did not like it at all, it went for way to long, was boring, bland and very underwhelming.

Predictable but enjoyable .

Suspenseful & great acting .

boring rates this 30%..out of possible 109.

Hilarious and Unexpected .

One thing that makes me wonder is why I failed to finish it on my first two tries, I fell asleep in the midst of first interviews (maybe i was too tired).

After we learn that the "killer" is in fact the one painfully obvious suspect we're treated to a ridiculously contrived explanation for how the things we already know happened happened.

However I gotta say that this was pleasantly enjoyable.

Despite of this fact, film has very interesting plot with unexpected twists.

The overall best one-term description I can give this movie is "dull".

Slow slow slow .

An enjoyable Movie with that Sunday afternoon feeling though it is like i could easily fall asleep if i watch it a bit tired also i could argue about the joy of watching it multiple times.

Great Performances, but somewhat predictable .

The movie begins with intriguing dialogues that grasps your attention.

Bored to freaking death!

You know that feeling you get when you're reading a detective novel and you're completely immersed it and can't get out even if you tried...?! Yup.. that's Knives Out .

The plot of this movie is brilliantly crafted, tense, and engaging.

The editing is brisk and racy, effectively keeping you on the edge of your seat.

A wonderfully written comical suspenseful movie for all ages.

The only other complaint was that the movie starts out rather slow going.

This is sad not because of the sole fact that the formula is changed, but because the movie felt really long and boring.

Must Watch and Worth Watching!!

The Neverending Boring.

Last 30 minutes were easily predictable and screenplay for which could have been better!

Unbelievably boring & predictable .

The plot is a typical Agatha Christie mystery, which makes it quite predictable.

Possibly the most tedious movie I've ever seen.

It works good because it is enough intriguing and amusing at the same time.

Clever and funny throughout, Knives Out is an enjoyable murder-mystery, both fresh and classic at the same time.

I thought it was gonna be exciting like a whodunnit?

Added to everything "Knives Out" is thrilling, hilarious, and beautifully shot making it a modern murder mystery whodunit masterpiece.

Alway, the PC Hollywood crowd gets their propaganda out.

Good mystery plot of a rich man' killing and his unexpected will.

Honestly pretty slow moving, nothing exciting.

This is a very entertaining movie.

Engaging, hilarious, and surprisingly heartfelt .

All in all, a great film, and I highly recommend it.

With plenty of good actors and an engaging plot.

But in the olden-times, they would be playing rich, white, crooked culprits who are also eclectic, darkly-humorous, interesting and intriguing enough to create an entire story around.

Extremely enjoyable .

It's a great thriller but Very Slow in the starting.

In short Knives Out is a no time-waster for sure; it's almost exclusively a bottled movie shot within one location, with great soundtrack, solid characters, some witty dialogues, a bit too theatrical and hyperbolized narrative but entertaining and fun to watch nonetheless.

How incredibly disappointing and such a waste of my time, I feel for anyone who paid to watch this.

Even so it was still really enjoyable and am looking forward to the franchise continuing.

Both mildly entertaining and mildly disappointing .

The intriguing story kept me guessing as well.

The movie pretends to be an original "mind blowing story", however it's absolutely predictable, with some irrelevant characters and very cliche dialogues.

In my original review I forgot to mention that I fell asleep during part of it - it was way too long.

While not the greatest film any of these actors have been in, I will say it was entertaining and a joy to watch.

The murder mystery rapidly falls apart and the film becomes so tedious in it's quest to make you "woke" that you quickly forget why you watched this mess in the first place.

Fell asleep .

It is such an entertaining movie and is a great reminded of films from the old Hitchcock days.

The story flow of the movie was unique and exciting.

Enjoyable classic .

So worth the watch.

Save yourself two dull hours and watch something, anything else.

Bizarrely original with a sense of suspense drawn from almost nowhere throughout the movie, on the edge of my seat til the end.

Worth watching though.

There were way too many convenient plot devices that made it seem a little contrived.

100% Predictable .

Though it's such an attractive movie with exciting plots and dark humor,there are some logical confilcts, which is awful for a detective story.

Ana de Armas is the only actor worth watching, while the film exposes the limitations of Daniel Craig and Chris Evans.

I found it to be dull and just a bad mystery.

I enjoyed it very much...

But to me, the plot was tedious and the outcome predictable.

Really enjoyed it .

The story is processed extremely complicated to be confounding, yet is pretty predictable.

And other than it being a little long, and 1 glaring plot hole, we found it to be very entertaining.

This is one of the most predictable murder mysteries I have ever seen, which in itself is bad enough as the main point of a mystery is to have twists and unexpected reveals.

Well, to begin with, I was not going to look at this picture at all, but the circumstances turned in such an unexpected way that I had to remember it and look in good company - and it was really hilarious and cool!

Snore .

Boring .

Characters are great and stunning to see on screen.

Very slow and predictable.

A stylish, and entertaining flick for a Friday night.

Switching gears from his James Bond persona, Daniel Craig is quite entertaining as private investigator Benoit Blanc.

Entertaining .

"This is a fun and entertaining murder mystery, with a little dash of political subtext.

Overall, it was an enjoyable, fun movie to watch that keeps you entertained and intrigued throughout.

All star cast made it extra enjoyable to watch.

Entertaining and interesting .

Each actor brings so much richness & detail to their character, it's a beautiful piece of filmmaking in my opinion with a truly stunning setting with the massive mansion setting that is just beautiful, old looking & richly detailed & a place you would want to explore, the look of this movie is gorgeous too with a lovely cozy look & set during the Autumn & simply lovely cinematography.

In the middle of everyrhing the police, family inagreements, an odd private investigator makes the movie gripping.

Beautifully shot and the old house was a fantastic set but the story was confusing, hokey and ridiculously boring with a final twist that was so drawn out it felt painful trying to get to the end.

I didn't want to watch it when my daughter suggested it, but I enjoyed it.

Bored to tears .

Predictable .

The film progresses quite quickly and when you think the show's over, you're taken on another thrilling ride.

And one of the most banal plot-points involves the maid's reaction to lying, making an extremely important character even more of an agenda with a pulse.

It is a dark comedy and the cast alone is what makes Knives Out worth watching.

Very funny very entertaining Daniel Craig rules Chris Evens kills it, the beautiful Ana de Armas is at her absolute best and the rest of the supporting cast are great and hilarious.

Had I gone into this movie with more modest expectations, I probably would've enjoyed it quite a bit.

A well written film, that flowed and was purely enjoyable to watch.

Formulaic and obvious .

Knives Out has something for everyone in the family, a huge ensemble cast, a riveting storyline that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and beautiful direction.

Thoroughly enjoyable, hilarious in places and was unpredictable in its outcome; all you need from a feel-good whodunnit!

I guess directors feel like they need to be on the right side of politics to be engaging.

Overrated, 2 hour long and boring drama.

Impeccable actors, an engaging story and very well told.

Conclusion: Nonetheless, "Knives Out" is a very entertaining and well-made "thriller" that plays with well-known tricks of the genre and offers an excellent cast.

There were very few moments, that I could remember, that were slow; every scene I felt like something important was being said or done.

Like Agatha's mysteries, so intriguing!

It was unexpected in a good way.

Craig and Evans are quite good, breaking out of their James Bond and Captain America roles, respectively, and the movie itself is very entertaining with some social satire thrown in.

A strange and bizarre waste of time.

Another 'Murder on the Orient Express', great cast, great concept but boring and disappointing.

It's an extremely long, unnecessarily drawn-out, boring drama.

Predictable .

One of the most boring films I have ever watched.

Great cast as always in these mysteries but very dull

This movie is not particularly funny, but it's light and enjoyable.

Worth the watch.

However, if you look past those errors the movie is extremely enjoyable.

It is intriguing and dramatic and quirky and humorous in all the right places.

Boring .

(Psssst, he could have avoided the whole "murder thing" by just "schmoozing" up to Marta and not commit any crimes)So yeah, enjoyed it, but was utterly pointless at its most basic core.

I've been watching whodunits from Charlie Chan to the Thin Man to etc etc. This movie in my opinion was just awful, just awful it was slow, the story was slow you kept hoping that something is going to happen and finally at the very, very end.....

Especially from Plummer and Craig who give their best teh film goes slow and slow till the end which gives us the guilty person.

Was very disappointed it was boring and drawn out.

Even an episode of Murder She Wrote is more intriguing .

After a slightly slow start and a mild "oh no, so many faces I'll have to remember" mild panic, I was happy to realize that the characters in the movie are all so unique and well done, with great acting, that even for someone like me (who is terrible with faces), it took me exactly no effort at all to keep track of who was who.

Crime/suspense thrillers are known to throw in frivolous details and then sweeping out the viewer with the plot making them forget their hunches (if any) and then those same details come to play to help solve the mystery in the end or the help explain why they are there in the first place (Chekhov's gun technique)A good thriller has the most unexpected endings/ plot twists depsite tipping the viewers (sometimes misleading) to make them feel like they know what's been going on all along.

Therefore, it will still make people smile: such a human nature exhibition hall like unfolding, are all reasonable and unexpected.

Boring Talkshow .

I kept waiting to be surprised but nothing happen, the while thing was somehow predictable and lazy and Daniel Craig 's accent is HORRIBLE, I thought of turning the movie off several times because of it.

Brilliantly summed up story with a truely engaging plot.

This somewhat worked for the film as it was able to bring in different and complicated motifs, such as loyalty, family, and new versus old in unique and unexpected perspectives.

A suspenseful film without McGovern, let the audience directly empathize to the suspect, fight with the detective, the anti routine design makes the ending more surprising.

Johnson is able to create quirky, layered, and engrossing characters and have them convincingly and hysterically play off each other.

The movie is funny, suspenseful and the ending is just what everyone wanted.

Daniel Craig's American accent is also as unbearable as they get and he probably talks the most in the movie.

"Knives Out" is an entertaining movie to watch and it's all due to its characters more than anything else.

After a long time finnaly something worth watching!

"Knives Out" is an entertaining film, a clear take-off on old-time Agatha Christie productions and such, except by three quarters the way through I had it figured out.

don't waste ur time

Boring boring boring why did this get high reviews???

Boring naive fairytale .

The film that the creators intended is obvious, and clearly present throughout as a sad, unimaginative passenger repeatedly embarrassed by trite dialog and the unrealized aspirations of a mediocre cast.

But it is the best whodunit that's come out for years and very entertaining.

An entertaining well crafted murder mystery with a lot of intricate details.

While the movie is entertaining, it places political themes over plot quality.

Dark comedy, great script, consistent plot with unexpected ending, great cast, Mr. Bond with southern accent was hilarious and hided his character's brilliance under that clumsy accent.

Toni Colette was also good but I found this tedious and boring.

All the performances are great - especially Daniel Craig's (Casino Royale) Benoit Blanc - with his unexpected Southern accent and humorous metaphors about donuts - putting a smile on our faces every time he walked onto set.

Well-Told, A Bit Slow, But Overall Entertaining .

Tedious, low rent script .

But to me it was just kind of dull , all in all .

This little film was boring.

But nevertheless, it's still entertaining, especially for Ana's can't-miss performance, so I strongly recommend it.

This movie is one of the worst crime movies I have ever seen, I could predict every aspect of the movie and I didn't feel any empathy for any of the characters even though Ana de Armas did a good job, but the movie in itself is just bad and I can't understand why this movie has such a high rating, just have a brain and you know the whole movie before you watch it, it's SO PREDICTABLE!!!!!!

The movie is breathtaking.

Dull .

In the age of NCIS, Law & Order, CSI, and True Detective, we are treated to this fun and engaging throwback to the classic "Whodunit" with the film, "Knives Out".


There were some very interesting characters that were wasted in the favor of the story being focused on a very bland albeit pretty one.

"Knives Out" has a simple premise, with loveable characters, hilarious dialogue and a thrilling storyline.

I tip my hat to all involved and would highly recommend it's viewing to both young and old.

The amazing and unpredictable plot alone was enough to make this movie a thrilling, intriguing and exciting experience.

The suspenseful score and the several internal conflicts between the family; no one knows what will happen next!

Bored and a rainy day we picked this movie to watch.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie , the script is good and the actors played well , very entertaining

It's simply an entertaining movie with a great cast, the very accessible.

Absolutely stunning.

Why all the praise for a poorly written, over-acted, pretentious comedy that has nothing going for it except a few good lines.

Wonderfully unpredictable and murky, while appearing transparent.

What I loved most about this movie is its tiny unpredictable twists.

I really liked the way it was shot and the plot was fun and exciting.

Waste of time and energy.

Visually it's also pretty compelling.

The first half I found was good but then the second half was just too far fetched and it lost its momentum completely , making that section of the film as well as the everything else feel pointless .

"Knives Out" is an entertaining whodunnit with a stellar cast.

Dull knives and broken blades .

A bit of a slow start, but turned out to be very entertaining.

we have an engaging murder mystery movie featuring a spectacular ensemble (led by Daniel Craig & Christopher Plummer) in our hands.

The Intimidating characters of the movie make it more mysterious of who the real culprit is and the suspense keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.

While this wasn't really the case with The Last Jedi, it's coming up here with new, exciting, fresh ideas that hold their place in the crime genre as well.

We thankfully watched it together and Gala - my wonderful girlfriend, really enjoyed it.

This film was just slow.


Entertaining .

A Deliciously Entertaining Crime Mystery .

Good one-timer movie with great potential, ruined by poor, usual and boring tools for revelations..Its good family comedy/drama crime story.. Some things and ideas were cliché , some were good and funny.

Sometimes you can tell very early on that a movie is pretentious and nonsensical, I should have heeded my own advice and cut my losses while i was ahead.

Plus the person who did it is so predictable it's just sad.

I usually watch slow movies but this one is boring as hell.

What an awful film, it's just boring, trying too hard to be like The Royal Tenenbaums, none of the characters are likeable, plot meanders along like an old dog.

All supporting actors from the police to the maid are too much drama, and the group play is excellent, showing the effect of a very stage play, which is worth watching.

The movie will have mixed reviews as it's strictly for people who are looking for a nostalgic entertaining time.

These two motifs had a very big, but unexpected impact, making it slightly political without trying too hard to be an obvious statement - giving us something quite unique and subtle.

I quite enjoyed it and would definitely recommend seeing it

A very good and intense crime mystery.

The exciting, interesting & super smart story is about a renowned crime novelist Harlin Thrombey (an excellent Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his huge mansion estate just after his 85th birthday & a Brilliant & debonair private Detective Benoit Blanc (a Brilliant Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate.

The group dramas are excellent, showing the effect of very stage dramas, and are very entertaining nature.

Thank you for makers and actors for such a mind blowing entertainment

Such an old manslaughter mode, with the most classic and completely overused bridge sections, has been renovated to be so fascinating.

Unfortunately, I found the chemistry between the characters to be a bit empty and superficial.

What adult finds this entertaining?

However the movie ended up being with a predictable ending.

Nice entertaining Friday night movie.

Take a hard pass on this and don't waste your time.

A long but fast paced movie.

How fascinating.. truly wonderful cinema, and a good climax as well

What a waste of talent, time and money.

The plot is so overly contrived it REEKS of tryhard.

Some parts were funny and entertaining.

I am laughing with him, because I am wondering how the sequel is gonna be anywhere near as entertaining or as funny as this one is?

Very entertaining .

Exciting classic detective.

Fun and Suspenseful .

As a detective story, it is both predictable, buggy, and weak; as a feature film, it doesn't have much real content.

My problem with this movie is the cheesy , predictable and very usual choice of ending and picking the tools to create final revelation.

Hollywood should make more movies like this, without gratuitous language and sex, but with an entertaining plot and not a lot of "messages".

Very entertaining .

Knives Out is riveting at its core.

It is predictable but enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this film, witty, great cast and very entertaining.

This is predictable .

An entertaining whodunnit .

Super predictable .

Decent, but far too long.

Daniel Craig's silly southern accent combined with the lackluster characters and predictable story it's really just an hour and a half of who-the-hell-cares with a disappointing ending.

Very good movie, unexpected plot.

slow, dull, and predictable.

Entire film quite slow, and full of boring conversation!

Very good movie and unexpected.

(Mr Craig is British) Aside from this very poor casting choice, the film was very enjoyable.

predictable and stupid...

He has created an extremely thrilling crime drama, that uses the collective skills of its excellent cast to great effect.

Exciting movie .

Final - the picture plays "cat and mouse" with the viewer, trying to confuse the latter, throwing in and focusing on seemingly insignificant things and events, leading the viewer on the wrong track and making the final for him truly unexpected .

The trailer looked intriguing, so I thought - let's go.

At some point in the movie we got used to it and overall it was entertaining.

Daniel Craig's accent is so bad it's unwatchable.

Enjoyable .

I have been waiting for another Murder By Death with entertaining eccentric characters set in an old house.

I usually fall asleep.

Turns out that the black sheep of the family Chris Evans' character Ransome actually was behind the whole thing, this was very predictable because throughout the film he was shown as the bad guy so it wasn't a shock when you find out that he is behind it all.

Slow and borring.

It's a really good crime thriller with a good screenplay, but some of the scenes were really confusing, probably editing could have been little better.

Although because I didn't reach the right conclusions from the plot twist that I knew, the hole in the donut if you will, was coming, it was still enjoyable as a whole (pun intended.

Masterfully written and constructed but Johnson's show of hands hides a pretty predictable conclusion .

The film was longer than it needed to be, and the camera spent way too much time zoomed in on the pretty nervous girl, whose basic role was to conjure up as many facial expressions (some variation on anguish and confusion) as possible.

It is definitely worth watching just for the magnificent performances by everyone involved.

6/10 a decent enjoyable film.

It was really an enjoyable watch.

The unexpected twists and trails start to mess up with the viewer too Well worth the watch!

My wife just started some tomato seeds and watching them grow was more exciting than this snooze fest.

Too Contrived .

So fun, so exciting movie.

The good little mistery and the little run-around were entertaining..

Apart from it beibg a rather entertaining movie, you get to see Evans as a really good bad guy.

worth watching .

Typical 'Agatha Christie' style crime mystery - tedious .

You can watch it if you are bored.

Most enjoyable mystery .

More tedious Trump Derangment Syndrome on display.

The film is enjoyable and dark and funny and fresh.


Entertaining and well executed.

Pretty boring.

It was so thrilling and amazing!!!

This would have worked if the plot was stronger, but it is predictable in some moments and Ana De Arma's character's "ability" to vomit every time she lies is a cheap way to drive the plot when it's stuck.

Watching the detective investigate and question each of the family members is easily one of the biggest and most entertaining elements to this film.

And given the cast and writer / director behind it - "Knives Out" truly stands out as a very intriguing and very well made movie.

At last a movie funny, entertaining and enjoyable.

Knives Out was way too LONG.

It's a very entertaining film, definitely worth watching.

Zzz .

It's unpredictable, it can keep you hooked plus the performances are outstanding.

This was a heavy-handed waste of time and waste of film.

entertaining and creative .

I give Johnson a little credit for the stylish setup and interesting cast of characters, both of which had a lot of potential, but not credit much since it's all completely wasted on a generic, predictable, bargain bin mystery with no real substance.

The "twist" ending was so predictable that we had it figured out in the first act.

Thrilling film that keeps you guessing right up to the end.

So predictable .

Intriguing and amusing .

Watching paint dry is quicker & more interesting.

The movie is so badly acted, so cheaply made and so boring that most people will be gently snoring 20 minutes in.

Surprisingly entertaining .

Entertaining movie .

Mystery films are generally not my cup of tea, but this one was really engaging.

Knives Out is an exciting English family mystery film realesed in 2019.

Tedious .

Finally, the irony of the ending was also far fetched & contrived.

Loved the experience up until that point but why sell a film as a mystery if you're going to go with the most obvious answer and even make the reasoning sort of pointless.

Very enjoyable.

I highly recommend it.

The writers should have learned from Christie to hack out unnecessary dialogue and drawn out drivel.

Luxuriously edited to have no regard for my time, and boringly predictable.

Great story, but plot is way too slow.

Intriguing, will make you watch upto the end .

Original and intriguing .

Consequently the beginning is a little boring.

Plenty of pointless political commentary provided as well, with the scales tipped heavily in favor of Leftist ideals, needlessly injecting opinions from the filmmakers about how Republicans are Nazis, and other lies.

Fun and Fascinating .

I gave it a totally fair chance, but it was empty and non-interesting.

It is entertaining and it has twists and surprises.

"Knives Out" is a masterful and unpredictable modern mystery.

The cast is among the most vivid and famous of recent films, and the roles they played were quite entertaining and promising.

at times so slow.

He did such a good job that the producers have signed Craig on for at least one more film for this unexpected franchise.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Acting is mostly superb, especially Ana de Armas, she's so natural and at the same time gripping.

It can make people fully immersed in the purest ornamental nature of such suspense comedy, and it can show social problems by showing a lot of details without preaching.

The movie is story is gripping and it doesn't make me bore for a single second.

It was Thrilling to watch 🎀 .

It just feels like an empty non-twist.

The plot of this movie was much better than Episode 8 and I enjoyed it.

An absolute must see for anyone who likes any of those 2 masters, and still a super enjoyable movie for everyone else.

There was indeed ill intent, but in the end it didn't seem to matter that the young protagonist did not check the label, and thereby confusing the old man's into his demise.

Boring as hell...

Fun and entertaining .

It had a jaunty opening setting the tone, and as the characters were introduced, you knew you were going to be in for a compelling, old style murder mystery on a par with "Murder on the Orient Express" (both versions).

An entertaining film.

Saying it is too predictable, too un-predictable, un-original or just too boring.

Smart, stylish writing, perfect performances, a lot of laughs, and an engaging memorable plot, Knives Out is the most fun I've had at the cinema in a long time and I can't recommend it enough.

Rian Johnson's well-crafted, wonderfully atmospheric, hugely enjoyable old fashioned all-star whodunnit that is a deliciously retro thriller with a modern twist.

Craig's character jumps to conclusions easily, the members of the family are full of stereotypes, the plot twists are somehow predictable.

Very entertaining.

Packed in layers of classical tone, English comedy, political satire, and shiny bright cards, except that the core part of the donut is empty, and there is no reason to proceed to the critical moment.

For such a cast and an oscar nomination this film is too plain, boring and too much predictable.

A gripping suspense film .

And the ending was even more exciting.

Quite enjoyable.

The whole story line was stupid , what a waste of time .

Plot: ExcellentWhile it starts using a really cliché idea it does not follow the traditional path and quite frankly, everything is really unexpected.

Without spoiling the movie, let me just tell you that it does not follow the typical whodunnit forrmula, while still being an exciting mystery.

Beyond that, the acting is incredibly stiff and awkward, the dialogue is flat and dull, and the characters are unconvincing parodies of tired, overworn tropes.

Intriguing and well made .

) arrived, we could have cared less about the plot, the characters, the victim, the family, the bumbling investigators, the good natured nurse, or even the overly pretentious artsy scenery or filming.

If you're looking for a good, intriguing, emotional experience that's your choice.

Tricky & thrilling.

You know what, this film is actually terrible: it's very pretentious; its puzzle is too convoluted for its own good; it has an overabundance of plot twists; it underutilized its stellar ensemble; and it has a lot of plot holes, or -in this case- donut holes!

This was a thoroughly enjoyable whodunnit with a fabulous cast and we were engaged the whole time.

Enough for these is a good basic story, a couple of exciting characters and an interesting venue.

All star cast very PG and very predictable .

Review 👨‍⚖️: A Deliciously Entertaining Crime Mystery by Rian Johnson.

It was tremendously enjoyable to watch.

The characters in "Knives Out" each has their own distinct personality, which makes the movie even more fascinating.

The rest of them are totally predictable.

It makes the entire thing seem pointless because it is so easily predictable, and takes FOREVER to get the answer out.

Like the classic whodunit films the pace is kept purposely slow - although it has been kicked into second gear to make things a little fresher.

Thrilling and captivating.

Technically, "Knives Out" is also very entertaining and impresses with some interesting and funny camera shots.

It was a very entertaining, warm movie.

Very boring movie.

Excellent script with unexpected twist and turns .

Special movie - engaging throughout .

too predictable .

Well, the wife and I fell asleep during the first 20-mins, so big ding for early pacing.

He is so fascinating to watch and he does remind me of my favourite Belgium detective.

Pretentious, Shallow, Joyless movie .

Predictable and stupid are the first words that come to mind while thinking of this film.

By the time the predictable plot twisting and lengthy, rambling and unbelievable whodunit monologue of the lead "investigator" (a private detective somehow given sole authority!

It's just a small, pointless piece of emotional manipulation to make us feel extra sympathy for someone who was already the sympathetic wrongly-accused-of-murder protagonist.

Another unwatchable movie by Rian Johnson.

Great story but way too slow .

It is sort of watchable, but it is essentially boring.

Find something else to waste your time on.

Some scenes are really funny and overall it's an entertaining movie.

When you don't really know where the story is going, you are all the more immersed in it.

Sadly I was reminded that community had many weirdos who just say "boring boring boring bad movie 2/10.

You could predict the climax and endings but it's still engaging...

A highly entertaining title.

Yawn .

It's an ignorant and intriguing form of racism which involves privileged ignoramuses being aware and proud of the fact they accept "lower" people.

Don't waste your time.

A bit slow.

The movie comes with unexpected twists and turns, good acting, and solid directing from Johnson which put all together makes this a movie I'd be glad to see again.

Brilliant thriller with so many twists and turns, gripping from start to finish, Rian's best work.

Good acting, but tiresome "woke" lecturing.

This movie is entertaining , funny and fun to watch.

I think that the first hour of the movie or so is a tad bit too slow.

It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Far too long.

You will be on the edge of your seat, relating to some characters and relating to the feeling of alienation by others.

As a result, we have a hilarious detective with excellent surroundings, an exciting story with sharp turns, excellent atmospheric music and excellent acting!

Exaggerated yet engaging acting and story in the vein of old crime stories.

But it was predictable for me (knife, vomit)

The climax is gripping and not long drawn out.

Entertaining mystery movie .

The movie was a great joyride and thoroughly entertaining all the way through.

Miss seeing more movies like this one with the sole intent of entertaining (in spite of the political and pop references).

Don't waste your money.

I'm sure detective story lovers will appreciate the unexpected turns of the plot.

Although I already thought what happened, but it is still thrilling!

Full of extreme political stereotypes and propaganda.

Predictable plot, poor acting.

Good acting but otherwise boring .

Was tough for me to get used to Daniel Craigs contrived horrible southern accent though.

Looper was boring, and TLJ sucked.

The plot is contrived as hell .

To be good and entertaining?!

I found it unwatchable.

Engaging from Start to Finish .

I really enjoyed it.

Daniel Craig, as a private investigator, is an exciting mix of investigators he has met so far.

Moderately entertaining .

I went with four friends and all four of us this felt it was meandering and pointless.

On the one hand, I was on the edge of my seat the first half-ish of the movie - I was really into the plot and trying to "figure out" what the twist or payoff was going to be - only to find the second half to be mostly a disappointment.

The plot was predictable for me as a fan of old detective books (poirot, holmes etc.), it wasn't that hard to understand who was the real killer around the middle of the movie.

This is a fun and exciting movie with all of the plot twists you would expect in a clue movie.

The problem with Knives Out is that its tone sometimes finds itself to be a bit repetitive after the big reveal.

Boring snoozefest .

Fascinating characters make this a fun movie to watch, not to mention an intriguing and surprising plot.

No, that would really be confusing though Benoit Blanc could then bring in the knives?

In the end I've enjoyed it a lot!

The story spoiled itself,so it doesn't have any excitement to watch , because you know most of the secrets and the other secrets are predictable .

My compliments to anyone who managed to stay awake for the whole film.

#Knivesout Rating: 7.8/10 Review : The plot is very good and there are plenty of twists and turns that keep the movie suspenseful.

If you like to be bored and fall asleep easily then start watching "Knives out".

Not a bad choice to spend entertaining two hours yet it has some humoristic, thrilling and action elements on its plot.

Entertaining dialogue .

the Agatha Christie-esque plot is incredibly well though and planned by rian johnson and works perfectly judging by the unexpected outcome of the investigation.

she present herself as the honest one, but it just seems so obvious and boring.

I'm also surprised at how times I found this film funny as well as sometimes suspenseful because of the mystery and characters.

it was funny, engaging and I cared about the characters, that's all I ask to a movie - to get me to the fun part.

A Wonderfully Stylish, Unpredictable Bit of Essential Murder Mystery...

Smart , but I found it dull .

Everything about this was perfect and had me on the edge of my seat.

Enjoyable movie.

This reminds me of one of the critics' review of 'Dragged Across Concrete', in which he called it a right-wing propaganda.

slow burns until it doesnt .

Husband and I really enjoyed it!

Overall, A great movie and very entertaining from start to finish.

Brilliance totally Brilliance Totally Unexpected Love the movie , it's too gripping and enjoyfull

Boring .

She then replied by saying "that's nice honey (yawns)" and then put the phone down.

Thoroughly enjoyed it .

Don't waste your time, unless your their to look at pretty actors on a pretty set deliver the most banal plot I've seen all year.

Make the film unwatchable!

This brings us to the overall narrative of Knives Out, and it has one of the most compelling storylines that I have seen in quite some time.

A solid enjoyable whodunnit that subverts expectations in subtle ways and is just that.

What a brilliant and exciting movie after so long time.

Nevertheless, thrilling and very entertaining!

Ended out as 8 stars of boredom 🙄 .

The whodunit is one of modern cinema's most underserved genres, and it's always exciting when someone decides to make one.

It was just boring.

The movie is ok, predictable to a certain degree.

And as the movie continues, it reminds you where you might not have been paying attention, rehashes events in the logical manner that is required, in case you hadn't followed, to prove the case (again, baring semblance to "Clue"), and every detail and every minute of the movie is intriguing.

Miserable attempt at mystery, boring characters, a complete waste of time.

Boring and totally non special .

The classic Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, that turns into something unexpected .

The tone switched up every half hour or so, keeping us on our toes, but explaining everything in depth, while keeping it as entertaining as possible.

Him talking about donut holes inside of donuts was a much needed comic relief in such an entertaining movie.

My daughter agreed and while we were still awake we walked out.

As previously discussed, if the film was more similar to that of Clue, more of the fascinating characters would have been involved and the film would have even more depth.

Not only did he create one of the best mysterys to come to the big screen, but he was able to incorporate all of the enjoyable genres like crime, drama, thriller, & comedy.

The plot was well thought out and had many unexpected twists, the characters were interesting and all fun to watch, and the actors were amazing.

But like I said before, this movie really made me reconsider the way movies advertise: because they didn't give away the big reveal(s), it made the movie all the more enjoyable.

" I couldn't quite figure everything out, therefore I cannot say it was predictable.

It's soo boring.

Despite top actors and a really good performance from all the actors, the movie lacks plot, and you find yourself knowing who the killer and the weak plot within the first hour, which leaves the movie in one long tedious dialog between all the characters.

Quite Enjoyable and Satisfying .

It's essentially what should have been the pitch for the studio, but instead of turning it into a film, they just let Daniel Craig explain it all in one breathless and BORING "finale".

the twists were unexpected and made the movie that much more interesting.

Thoroughly entertaining murder mystery/whodunit .

waste of time.

Great cast and acting, but predictable narrative.

While Entertaining, Overhyped and Underwhelming .

very slow start .

Overall, "Knives Out" is a fun and enjoyable movie.

Slow .

Mostly entertaining "whodunnit" in the vein of Agatha Christie.

Dull, fragmented, uncaptivating .

I strongly attest that this film would merit the extoils of fanatics for its lively entertaining mystery.

The story (heartbreaking as much as it is entertaining), the characters, the camera, actors, aesthetics..everything on point and there to amuse and bemuse, make you think and engage, reminiscing all those beautiful stories by Agatha Christie.

It was a little boring and too long.

but way way more boring.

It's that entertaining that I watched at 3am night before watching it I felt sleepy yet while watching my sleep was gone that great and gripping entertaining movie it was!

Because you think you know everything there is to know by the end of the 2nd act, the beginning of the 3rd act seems confusing and disconnected...

I was looking forward to it but unfortunately it's just boring and dull.

The whole cast is terrific fun & the movie is a huge piece of entertaining fun & with a real cozy atmosphere.

Very interesting and entertaining .

Bore yourself to death.

Instead it is rather prude, bland and frankly forgettable.

Thoroughly entertaining .

A fantastic new slant on the murder-mystery drama, especially as the genre can be quite formulaic.

I enjoyed it for sure.

Apart from that it dragged

Funny, Engaging and Rewarding.

I'm not a pro reviwer but all I'm saying that, this movie is really good and worth the watch.

It was so painfully slow throughout, by the middle of the movie, I was thinking this is either gonna end like the usual suspect or dumb and dumber.

It has a compelling plot with many twists and turns.

Overrated and boring .

Nothing happens!

I guess other films could be called left-wing propaganda?

Fun and enjoyable.

Very good whodunnit but it's a one time watch, a highly enjoyable watch nonetheless.

I enjoyed it so much that i want more!!!

Super smart and entertaining.

While all the technical factors are judged by the critics I watched this movie as any regular person and the plot just was so intriguing that I watch the whole movie and I was impressed with the story.

The set is fantastic, the dialogue is great, and the storyline is entertaining.

An engaging and hilarious whodunit with one of its biggest twists being an early reveal and a shift in the point of tension that works wonderfully well and adds a good heaping of heart to the already whip-smart script (see the knife line tie-in at the end, the return of the mug in one of the best final shots I've ever seen).

With numerous twists and turns, this film kept me on the edge of my seat throughout its entire runtime.

It's the kind of movie you absolutely should see, knowing as little as possiple, so I'm not saying anything about it, other than great performance, good music, stellar camera work, and absolutely worth watching.

Boring is the day is long.

Lastly, the story is compelling as it had me hooked from start to finish.

It got me questioning and changing my answer on who had done it multiple times with many unexpected twists!

It was so boring and just dragged on too long.

worth watching..Bravo

Unbelievable fast paced, brilliantly acted (by everyone, especially Ana De Armas), with enough twists and turns to keep anyone enthralled and captivated throughout the film.

Found it incredibly boring and then the bit with the nurse puking if she tells a lie combined with Daniel Craig's crappy attempt at a Southern U.

Such a high quality cast and great acting yet, this movie just bored me to tears.

Enjoyable twist, a little bit Telenovela-ish .

Lots of famous actors going through the motions of an extremely predictable and pedestrian story.

One of the worst movies I've seen in a while.

For all the flair and ingenuity the movie displays it is rather bland.

I'm glad Daniel Craig had that absurd accent because it made the movie more entertaining.

But, there is a twist that may be slightly predictable.

The political commentary the film has, is more evocative than definitive.

You enjoy watching it while it keeps you fully immersed in its story and characters.

That said, it was a good story, nice twist, and otherwise very entertaining, thus the seven stars.

Definately worth watching!!

"Knives Out" is a perfectly entertaining, perfectly agreeable little film, a star-studded old-style murder-mystery that's good fun while it lasts.


Seems the negative reviews on here fall into three categories: It was boring, It wasn't a whodunnit, and white tears.

A taut script and stellar cast gave him the tools he needed to deftly direct one of the most entertaining films in the last few years.

The climax is gripping and not long drawn out.

Grear cast, but a I fell asleep.

Intriguing premise with major plot hole.

My wife and I turned it off after 30 minutes - Simply unwatchable.

The rest of the cast was pretty enjoyable!

The movie is a thrill to watch and making like you are in that situation makes it even more exciting and fun.


This is a movie worth watching several times!

Great acting and very entertaining!

I just feel that despite all of Johnson's clever storytelling tricks that he chose the most predictable way to wrap up this story.

So entertaining.

Each and every one of their conversations were so engaging that you could really see what brilliant actors they all are.

That's because the writing is outstanding, infused with a surprising amount of unexpected humour.

Even when the character is acting lazily this is entertaining to watch.

Mildly entertaining and beautifully done.

Throughout the movie there were unexpected twist and turns.

Enjoyable, entertaining, amazing cast .

A very exciting movie .

Such a slow moving movie .

It boasts an exceptional ensemble cast as well, who are a joy to watch as they battle their way through the film's exciting twists and turns in an effortlessly entertaining way.

I don't remember any bad language, which is more enjoyable for me.

Very entertaining, very well acted, very well filmed, great script, fantistic actors.

Boring .

It's grossly unfunny, slow, boring, badly written and not even well acted, despite the "star studded cast.

We fell asleep the first three times attempting to watch this film.

Really boring for the most time.

very entertaining...

It was a boring stream of dialogue that just droned on and on.

A bunch of top list actors, a boring story with a very dull climax.

What you get with the subtly of a sledge hammer is white America bad immigrants good If I want a political lecture I'll go to YouTube Keep propaganda out I wonder who produced this

Oddly funny, unpredictable with a well-used star-studded cast.

It's one of the best movies I've seen in awhile, I highly recommend it!

She blackmails him and meets him alone in an empty laundromat.

It's got a great story and mystery to and The Who done aspect and it's got lots of great twist and the last 20 minutes is the most entertaining and I really liked the performances by Chris evens and Daniel Craig and.

He's a really good filmmaker, both technically-speaking and at putting together a compelling story with his screenplays.

Weak story with enjoyable twist and cast .

A movie entertaining .

The exciting film.

Another Smart and Engaging Rian Johnson Film .

I get that it is supposed to be a mystery, but it feels like a slow drag.

The mystery part was weak and boring.

I found it very predictable and the acting was just extremely average and was weirdly underwhelming.

Few movies out there that are very entertaining/interesting and this is one of them.

a completely enjoyable movie .

Kind of boring, it was just okay I don't understand all the hype.

It was so predictable.

I found this movie boring.

Further, the director shows us a fascinating investigation, which strictly complies with all the laws of the genre.

Like a cheesecake, this was slow moving, rich, filling, and you will go back for another slice.

Every single Little things have meaning and connected to everything.. If you think it's boring at first...

Knives Out is a completely enjoyable movie.

This is a well-made classical whodunnit, quite entertaining, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't predict all the twist plots.

Make each member intriguing, and give them reasonable cause - revenge, greed, spite, or all the above.

Entertaining ride .

Even though the movie ended up being with a predictable ending, knives out is a good film.

Absolute waste of time .
