Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery
Release Year: 2022
Directed by Rian Johnson
Cast: Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista
Glass Onion was one of the biggest Netflix movies released in 2022. It’s the sequel to the hit 2019 movie Knives Out from Rian Johnson. After the success of the film, Netflix bought the rights to two additional movies from Johnson about Daniel Craig’s character, Benoit Blanc.
In the film, detective Benoit Blanc is invited to an exclusive gathering/murder mystery party at the private island of billionaire tech bro, Miles Bron. They are joined by his inner circle of influencers, actors, executives, and politicians. That’s where the mystery begins to unfold.
Overall, I didn’t like Glass Onion quite as much as the first Knives Out movie, but I was entertained all the way through. It’s a lot of fun, and I’ll watch anything Rian Johnson does, especially if Daniel Craig is involved.
There’s a new Knives Out movie in the works, but it’s not coming to Netflix anytime soon. Hopefully, the first Knives Out movie will be back on Netflix soon for you to watch that Knives Out double feature. Stay tuned for more updates on when Knives Out 3 is coming to Netflix.
