Knives Out ★★★½

Knives Out (2019) is definitely one of the better movies of 2019. Everyone in the cast does their part very well; Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, Katherine Langford, Toni Collette, Jaeden Lieberher, Christopher Plummer, Michael Shannon, and Lakeith Stanfield are all great and have really good chemistry with each other. The music is very good and adds to the overall tone of the film. The cinematography wasn't exceptional but wasn't bad by any means. The pacing was very good and the whole movie moved at a brisk pace. The screenplay, while having a bit too many homages, was very interesting and they were a lot of well-deserved payoffs. One of my problems was how the tone was a bit inconsistent and that did take me out of some of the scenes. Aside from a few of my issues with the film, I still would highly recommend Knives Out (2019). 7/10
