Like all of Rian Johnson's genre pictures, this one is clever, fast, and most of all, fun. After noir and con-men, he now delivers a take on a whodunnit that twists and turns with the best of them. The cast is uniformly great - all these old actors hamming it up as one of those terrible moneyed families - and Daniel Craigs detective is one for the ages. Ana de Armas is fantastic, the direction is crisp and witty, the music is cool, and you just walk away with a big grin on your face
Amazing ensemble whodunnit with great acting and a great twist. I loved it
It wasn't terrible but I honestly expected it to be a lot better. I love these types of movies and when I saw the trailer I couldn't wait to see it.
Unfortunately it doesn't even begin to take proper advantage of its stellar cast. Characters with accomplished actors behind them, who, given this type of movie, should have suspicions and doubts cast upon them, end up in nothing more than the periphery, as padding and the butt end of jokes. As such, the "whodoneit" ends up as a, well,...who else could it possibly be?
Far too obvious for this genre. Not remotely as clever as it pretends to be. Not a bad movie, just very disappointing.
