Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery Lacks Knowledge and Intelligence

Here you will read a review about Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Knives Out, the 2019 film, did more than just provide Daniel Craig a respite from playing James Bond; it also gave the closed-door murder mystery a big boost.An elderly novelist has been found dead in his Massachusetts mansion, and a posh Southern gentleman by the name of Benoit Blanc reveals the killer in the same style as Agatha Christie’s detectives of old: by sniffing around the suspects (of whom there are many), reading the tea leaves, and smoking out the murderer with aplomb in front of an audience.

Netflix immediately made up more copies of Rian Johnson’s film once it proved to be so popular. For all intents and purposes Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is an expansion of the original. Mr. Blanc has returned. This time around the group and setting are both considerably ritzier. A tech billionaire named Miles Bron (Norton) uses his private Greek island as bait to entice his old friends, including a washed-up supermodel played by Hudson, a politician on the rise played by Hahn, a men’s rights activist with a thing for tattoos played by Bautista and a scientist on the verge of a breakthrough played by Odom Jr and his friends.

Hold on a second, why is Blanc even here? While we think, Bron is busy proving to be a real little bruiser who has a leg up on everyone he knows and isn’t afraid to put the screws to them. Bron always gets what he wants. Could anyone name a real-life tech mogul who fits this description? This one owns a hypersonic vehicle, but he claims Blanc there’s nowhere to drive it on the island, so he keeps it hidden on top of a dome (the glass onion of the title). Oh, well.

Andi (Monae), Bron’s ex-partner and source of much resentment, shows up out of the blue, making Bron even more acerbic than usual. It’s obvious that nobody likes Bron; when he’s not around, everyone gives him the cold shoulder. No one eats the dinner that has been set up in a room that could have been in a museum because truth bombs are poisonous to the taste buds. At that point, a member of the dressed-up group dies. Now that we know the truth, Johnson sets the stage for the climax with a deft flip of a switch. When it arrives, everything goes bang. Of course, the surprise comes at the end.

So. Is it just as entertaining as the original? You’d think, after hearing me talk about it at length, that I’m really into it, just like I was in the first. However, despite its attractive exterior, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery lacks the intelligence and depth of its predecessor. In spite of Hudson’s brilliant performance as the avian-minded model known as Birdy Jay, she’s still not someone you’d want to hang out with. Even the rest of the ‘disruptors’ aren’t that appealing; the film makes a concerted effort to poke fun at the rich and famous, although Ruben Ostlund beat them to it. What a shame it would be to get in a great sentence like “everyone is so woke these days, it is out of control” and then be unable to expand on it.

Norton, who invents words like “inbreathiate” and “pre definite,” plays the person who preys on people to the point where he is obese quite well. Monae is fantastic as the victimized girl who attempts to make amends by doing the right thing. Craig still looks sharp, but he is relegated to sit on the sidelines for his big moment. He deserved greater responsibility. Blanc is boring and so is the film itself despite its many special effects.
