"The whodunit KNIVES OUT is an A-list-turned-slay-list party starring Daniel Craig, Toni Collette, Chris Evans and Jamie Lee Curtis. It's fun to watch super-serious actors get to misbehave." - New York Post
"Entertainment that’s as smart, witty, stylish and exhilarating as any movie lover could wish for." - Wall Street Journal
"Just as effective as a goofy social satire as it is a diverting shaggy dog story, this is a movie that knows when to pour on the gas and when to ease up." - Washington Post
"KNIVES OUT in the end, believes earnestly in the whodunit, it just wants to turn it inside out. To say more about that would spoil the fun. But keep an eye here, and elsewhere, on de Armas." - Associated Press
"There's a great deal of lively and funny shenanigans with poisons and antidotes, and Johnson delivers a stab of cheerful cynicism." - Guardian
"A whole lot of fun, intended to keep the audience off-balance right up until the finish. It's a razor-sharp throwback from writer-director Rian Johnson." - CNN
