What we think

On this evidence, Knives Out might be Johnson’s best film yet. It’s certainly his sharpest.

What others think

It’s such a rare pleasure to see a director so in love with a genre without slipping into Tarantinoesque fanboy indulgence, remembering his audience is bigger than himself and also that his film requires both head and heart.
Benjamin Lee The Guardian
As playful as Wes Anderson and as literal as James Gray, Johnson has finally devised an original story that’s fueled by his natural gamesmanship - one that doesn’t feel like it’s suffocated by its own design.
David Ehrlich IndieWire
It’s all terrific, twisted fun that actually does keep you guessing until the deliciously slippery end.
Peter Travers Rolling Stone
Johnson keeps us guessing, which is good, but the thing that makes this a better mousetrap than most isn’t the complexity, but the fact he’s managed to rig it without the usual cheese.
Peter Debruge Variety
The plot whips along at such a pace you can feel the wind in your face, but it is also so tight that you never feel the need to even once glance back.
