Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after
 When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death. With an all-star ensemble cast including Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, and Jaeden Martell, KNIVES OUT is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.

Went to see Knives Out with my husband and 18-year-old daughter. Holly and I enjoyed it much more than my husband who thought it dragged. Knives Out is an excellent murder-mystery movie. Fabulous acting cast, great script with the right amount of dark humor.

The story moves in a step-by-step fashion like a typical murder-mystery. There is one car chase! But this the movie's strength is in the cast and story.

Knives Out isn't the type of movie you need to see on the big screen (though an argument can be made that Chris Evens needs to be seen on one). But if you enjoy a quality murder-mystery and looking for something to do on a cold day, then this is worth a watch.

Don gave it 3 1/2 sheep
Holly gave it 4 1/2 sheep
I gave it 4 "KFC" Sheep
