Knives Out Review: 9 Ups & 1 Down


1. Not Enough Ensemble Interaction

Knives Out

There's precious little to complain about in this movie, but if there's one minor quibble, it's that the colossal ensemble cast of A-list talent doesn't spend that much time together.

There are only a few centerpiece scenes - brilliant, mind - where the entire lot is gathered together, as is almost certainly a result of scheduling and/or budgetary constraints.

Granted, Johnson's decision to splinter the cast into various deliciously entertaining subplots makes it hard to care too much, but having a few more scenes of the entire cast together sure would've been great.

Again, you'll likely be so wrapped up in what's going on that you won't much care. And so, on with everything Johnson gets so, so right...
