A generally enjoyable time with fun cartoonish characters.

The dialogue is... to die for. It doesn't get any better than this.

An ingenious new thriller that takes the bones of Agatha Christie and brilliantly updates it for the most purely entertaining movie of the year.

Bubbling merrily in its humanity, and impishly clear in exposing societal rot through the cleverest of cinema lenses - a whodunit.

Knives Out is a thoroughly satisfying murder mystery populated with well-drawn, idiosyncratic characters who collectively present a tapestry of modern America.

A thrilling, expertly-crafted whodunit...

A great example of what genre cinema can be on its best days, Rian Johnson's whodunit takes the rules, bends them, plays with them, reverses them and then realigns them so smoothly...

Knives Out is a self-aware, stylised farce that has a great time - and pulls you along with it.

Knives Out is a great antidote to the Oscar contenders and family fare that dominate this time of year. It's a purely fun time at the movies thanks to its strong story and fantastic performances.

It's an old-fashioned set-up but slowly echoes of modern-day issues of immigration, deportation and white entitlement are introduced to add edge to the story.

It's highly unlikely you're going to get through the movie without it completely getting its hooks into you.

A predictable whodunit that seems to want to act as homage to the great mystery features of the past, but ends up feeling like a recycled plot from a lesser Agatha Christie novel.

It gets goofier when the explanations unfold, yet the resolution and the parting shots are incredibly satisfying.

Everything old can be new again, and Knives Out demonstrates this brilliantly due to Rian Johnson's airtight script, assured direction and the commitment from the crazily talented cast. Foul play has never been this much fun.

This whodunit is light entertainment at its finest, a surprising movie with an enjoyable sense of complication and a dream cast.

Rian Johnson proves himself to be one of contemporary cinema's most creative, inspired, disciplined, and downright entertaining filmmakers working today.

This modern twist on an old classic understands that the genre's formulas are fertile ground on which to hang strident critiques of privilege and class.

Rian Johnson ("Looper") delivers a star-studded romp that rises above the standard "Clue" whodunnit by revealing the culprit early on, then watching the aftermath.
