Glass Onion

Glass Onion ★★

Although I would shy away from dismissing Glass Onion considering there is some fun to be had, good God is this film annoying. I understand that the film is poking fun at celebrities and influencers, but am I the only one that finds the production of the film to be a little ironic given what it is making fun of? 

I am all for making fun of celebrities and influencers for being tone-deaf and hiding out from true global problems with their money and private islands, but Johnson and crew are literally doing exactly that with the production of this film. Also, it is one thing to poke some fun, but every character here aside from Blanc is annoying and stupid which makes it hard to care about anyone. 

Now I do not want to sound like I really care all that much about celebrities or how this film was made because I don't, but it is hard not to poke fun back at Rian Johnson when I get the chance. The real issue here however is that the plot just fails to match the original's simplistic premise, yet fun and tangled mystery. The one-on-one interrogations are gone and the absurdity sadly lowers the intensity to the floor.
