KNIVES OUT (2019)

NO SPOILERS AHEAD
While not being all it’s chopped up to be, there is a fantastic ensemble cast helping make this effort worthwhile, all giving sharp performances within a twisting, convoluted script.
One main flaw, however, prevents this from being serrated higher [yes, that was a pun]. Since my wife and I are both in the medical field, we just looked at each other over our glasses at the flaw in logic. I don’t want to ruin it here, but maybe one day I shall post it in a collapse below.
I have 2 recommendations for similar movies which are far superior (oddly, they both star Michael Caine):
— Sleuth (1972) ( IMDB || Wiki ) [this was re-made in 2007, not seen]
— Deathtrap (1982) ( IMDB || Wiki )
