Reviews:
"Johnson's screenplay in many ways is the star here, with its well-oiled plot mechanics and guileful twists and turns, constantly pulling the rug out from under the audience as much as the characters." - 09/07/2019 Hollywood Reporter


"Twists abound in KNIVES OUT, but by far the most unexpected is Johnson’s decision to treat this brain teaser as a comedy." - 09/07/2019 Variety


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "KNIVES OUT is one of the most purely entertaining films in years. It is the work of a cinematic magician, one who keeps you so focused on what the left hand is doing that you miss the right." - 09/08/2019 RogerEbert.com


"[A] silly, stabby, supremely clever whodunnit..." - 09/10/2019 Entertainment Weekly


4 stars out of 5 -- "It quickly becomes apparent that Johnson has more than daggers and clues on his mind: the mansion is a stand-in for America itself." - 11/25/2019 Empire


"In KNIVES OUT, some truths reveal themselves faster than others and much faster than expected, and that’s part of the film’s knotty, head-spinning charm." - 11/26/2019 A.V. Club


4 stars out of 5 -- "What a kick to watch whip-smart director Rian Johnson shake the cobwebs off the whodunit genre and make it snap to stylish, wickedly entertaining life for a new generation." - 11/25/2019 Rolling Stone

"In the deliciously entertaining KNIVES OUT, Johnson goes back to his roots with an updated homage to the Agatha Christie whodunnits he loved as a child..." - 12/01/2019 The Guardian


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here’s nothing throwaway about this meticulously crafted murder mystery." - 11/30/2019 Total Film


"Writer-director Rian Johnson plays fair by the mystery and by us; he’d have made a great director for Hollywood’s Golden Age but thankfully we’ve got him instead." - 12/19/2019 Boston Globe


"Johnson returned to Earth with this neo-noir mystery, a welcome throwback to the skill and ingenuity of his early films..." - 12/23/2019 Uncut
