Whoddunit Film ‘Knives Out’ Draws Positive Acclaim From Film Critics

Here are more reasons why we must watch out for 'Knives Out'!

Early reviews for Rian Johnson's whodunnit flick Knives Out are out! And they're all praises to the film and the star-studded ensemble that brought the mystery-thriller to life.

Headlined by Daniel Craig and Chris Evans, who are known for their big-screen roles as James Bond and Captain America respectively, Knives Out is yet to arrive at local cinemas on November 27, but the positive acclaim that it is already receiving from the international audience since it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2019, is something for the Filipino moviegoers to be really excited about. Check out some of the rave reviews from international media outfits below.

From Fandango's Managing Editor, Erik Davis:

Collider Editor-in-Chief Steven Weintraub dubs the entire cast "pitch perfect":

Here's one from Thrillist writer Emma Stefansky:

Here are more reviews from the lucky crowd who had already seen Knives Out:

Knives Out revolves around a famous novelist's sudden death that was first presumed as suicide. A renowned detective (Daniel Craig) enters the scene and proclaims that the man could've been murdered, and the members of the dead man's dysfunctional family are the prime suspects. In this film, director Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) revives the whodunit genre and it sure is effective to the audiences who have already seen the film.

Besides Craig and Evans, the movie's all-star ensemble also includes Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why), Lakeith Sanfield (Get Out), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Toni Collette (Hereditary), Michael Shannon (Man of Steel), Ana de Armas (Yesterday), Jaeden Lieberher (IT Chapter Two) and more.

Knives Out is set to be released here in the Philippines on November 27. For more information, check out the film's website, as well as its social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
