What is the movie about?
Detective Benoit Blanc finds himself going to a different place than he has ever been before. Miles Bron, a tech billionaire, has invited Benoit and some of his friends to his private island in Greece. Miles and his friends are livid when they discover that one of them has been poisoned. The man had arrived on the island but was unable to go anywhere because of his condition. This causes Miles to lose it because he wants the culprit exposed as soon as possible.
What is interesting about this movie?
The movie is laced with more mystery and thrillers than any of the other Knives Out movies. Miles is not just a billionaire but also a tech mogul who knows so much about everything that can happen in the world. He believes there is still life beyond the internet, thus his idea to create an island outside of technology. Everyone loves him because he loves them too, but Benoit and his agents did something that catapulted Miles into intense fury.
What should you look out for?
Are you familiar with the previous Knives Out movies? If yes, then this one is slightly different as it only has five cases in a row. However, I think this is good because the old ones have been released in a complete set, while the new ones are being released serially. The actors differ, but they all have their trademark roles.
What fans are expecting from this movie?
True to the Miles Bron character, this movie is teeming with great characters. This movie will show you all the various aspects of Miles that you did not get to see in the older movies. You will also like how Jurgen and Benny play their parts well. They are funny but serious when necessary. The fun bit about Benoit’s romance with another investigator is also something you do not want to miss out on. The movie has five cases that are strung together, but they have no link until the end when they all come together to form one big picture. This should be a great experience for fans especially those with a knack for mysteries and thrillers.
