Glass Onion

Glass Onion ★★★

Glass Onion is certainly a lot of fun, and in some ways it is even bigger than the first film, although not as effective. The first film did work better for me. I feel like this one just doesn't live up to how cleverly constructed and well-thought-out the mystery of its predecessor was, it falls flat, in comparison. The final act almost ruined everything for me. I appreciate that they were trying to do something different, but as a whodunnit murder mystery/thriller, I just don't buy it. It doesn't help that the characters are all disposable, and it gets way too silly and contrived. Even though, I didn't like it as much as the first one, I thought it was very entertaining and funny, and I really liked the change of setting. There are definitely some interesting elements on display, even if some of them are underutilised, including its top-tier cast.
