Review: Glass Onion

What is up, my lovelies? We have arrived at Friday, and I am very excited about that. BUT it is Friday the 13th, so be careful!! Today, I have a nice, safe review.

Description from IMDB: “World-famous detective Benoit Blanc heads to Greece to peel back the layers of a mystery surrounding a tech billionaire and his eclectic crew of friends.”

OMG I love this movie so much. It’s funny and smart and quirky. Like any great mystery, there are secrets and surprises around every corner. 

For anyone who might not know, I should mention that Glass Onion is the sequel to Knives Out, which I also loved. This one is better, though. I think the pacing might’ve been a tad faster. 

If you haven’t seen Knives Out, that is no problemo, because this is a new mystery with an all new round of suspects. 

Pretty much only Detective Benoit Blanc remains, and his character is really fun to watch. While he is brilliant, he’s also awkward as heck. Daniel Craig plays him fantastically in both movies.

There is another character, who I can’t talk about, because it would be a fairly large spoiler. She was not in Knives Out, but I sincerely hope she returns. She pairs well with Blanc. 

The whole cast and their characters were amazing, for real.

One thing that I found very strange was Edward Norton’s character’s eyes. They gave him these weird ass light contacts that I couldn’t stop staring at. I have a screen grab fer ya. 

Like, why? My bro. Never do that again, Edward Norton. Just say no to the weird contacts. 

Another great thing about this movie is the setting. Most of the happenings occur on a tropical island in Greece, in a weirdly modern facility called the Glass Onion. It has its own air of mystery that really adds to the story. 

Welp, that’s all I have to say about the Glass Onion. Highly recommend it. Please consider me a fangirl. I would like more Benoit Blanc movies, please. I promise to watch all of them.
