"Knives Out" caught my attention when I saw a commercial where it boasted a Rotten Tomatoes score of 100. I’ve never seen a movie score that high on the site, so I was excited when my mom, brother, husband, and I went to see it after Thanksgiving.
Let’s start, as we normally do, with a bit of the plot, and then delve into the different aspects of the movie:
ACTING | 4.5/5
THE STORYLINE | 5/5
THE MEANING | 5/5
It showed that, even though the family told her that she was like family, they really didn’t care for her when it came down to it. They, at one point, threaten to expose her mother’s immigration status and have her taken away.
The next big plot point was money and what lots of money can do to people. After Harlan dies, he leaves behind a ton of money and books, as well as a publishing house. The family snaps when his will is read. They want their inheritance and they are willing to do just about anything to get it.
Overall, the storyline really did have some points that made you think.
FINAL RATING | 5/5
This movie was really great, especially the more and more that I think about it. It really does give a "Clue" vibe. The movie was mysterious yet riddled with comic relief from each of the characters. I really enjoyed the movie and I hope that you will go check it out while it is still in theaters. This is definitely one movie we will be adding to our at-home collection.
