Glass Onion was the perfect follow up to the first one with Daniel Craig as detective, Benoit Blanc. While the first movie dealt with a patriarch, Harlan Thrombey, and his family, the second movie dealt with Benoit Blanc finding himself being invited to an island with a group of people he knows nothing about except they have Miles Bron in common. Miles Bron, played by Edward Norton, is a billionaire who needs to find meaning in his life. He pretty much has done it all and needs some excitement in his life as he has been cooped up from the pandemic. When a movie imitates real life (sort of). What begins as an innocent get together turns into a weekend of criminal activity through destruction and murder. The cast besides Daniel Craig and Edward Norton includes Janelle Monáe, Leslie Odom Jr., Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista. The promise of this movie is the eclectic group of characters in one place and there were some surprises up to the very end. It’s what made it comedic and mysterious. Glass Onion is definitely a dramedy (drama and comedy) and is two hours and 19 minutes long. It is rated PG-13. It deserves a wider audience than it currently has. This is a must-see movie.
I rate Glass Onion FOUR FINGERS and ONE THUMB at 100%.
