Knives Out, A Real “Whodunit”

A true whodunit mystery, Knives Out, was released on November 27. With a running time of 2 hours and 15 minutes this murder mystery tells a story of a lovable old grandfather who supposedly committed suicide. When the detective suspects foul play, the children and grandchildren become prime suspects. The detective tries to figure out if this was suicide or a real “whodunit.”

The movie starts off at the grandfather’s birthday party and later that night he is found dead. All his children and grandchildren seem innocent, as does the staff . No matter how many clues point to the death being a suicide, the detective knows something is a little fishy. He never gives up even though everyone’s stories are air tight. Throughout the movie he continues to look for clues and in the end solves the case.

This movie keeps the audience on the edge of its seat and there is never a dull moment. The film is rated PG-13, so the age so I would recommend is teens and up. Mia Bond, 10, said, “this movie is very entertaining, I was very surprised at the end it was full of twists and turns, but at some parts it made me a little anxious.”

I would rate this movie five out of five stars
