Glass Onion

Glass Onion ★★★½

Certainly plays the Eat the Rich card better than Triangle of Sadness, but the ensemble isn’t as remarkable as Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Christopher Plummer of the original. As per usual, the thick, southern drawl and cunning blue eyes of Daniel Craig as Detective Blanc steal the show. And, something has to be said for Director Rian Johnson’s pristine attention to re-evaluated detail when making a murder mystery/comedy hybrid. (Kenneth Branagh should take some lessons.) 

Overall, a more elaborate, extravagant, and expensive version of the first one. Even for sequel standards, the red herring is a bit too preposterous.

(Also, Netflix taking this out of the theatres after one week is asinine.)
