In recent years, the popularity of the detective genre actually went on there. Then the massive audience he became somehow uninteresting, it whether it just have not was there anything really worthy. Offhand I remember probably only the "Murder in Orient Express", where narcissism Kenneth Branagh in the role of detective Poirot has reached some absolutely epic limits. But that's latest movie Ryan Johnson on a detective theme literally with production phases began to attract the incredibly cool cast, and later really impressive trailers. From Johnson's not all smooth happened with the eighth episode of "Star wars", although it the most part worked with that left behind Abrams, not mention of hanging over a production of Disney. But here "Get the knife" was obviously not so tortuous thing that has some ease and perfect casualness.

The last action of the film occurs by Johnson the most part inside a huge mansion of Harlan Thrombi, which leisure died in very strange circumstances. All the matter in that Harlan had committed suicide. But the circumstances are somewhat complicated by the fact that this old man was the owner of a huge financial conditions, and also the father absolutely unlucky children and grandfather not less unlucky grandchild as the parasites lived for about him. In the same time the story takes private investigator — Benoit Form, which needs to deal in all the circumstances of the death Trombi.

If suddenly the audience is pinning too high hopes on the film as something that can revive the detective genre in film, and perhaps even to lead it, probably not is too much to be deceived. All the matter in that the detective component of the picture was not so deep, almost all of the main reason will be known by the middle of the work. But it should be understood that some cards will remain for the final. Another thing is that these trumps may not seem so stunning. Although, in addition, the picture still has something to offer. In the first is for the local atmosphere that could be felt even when watching trailers, but she direct entangles, and you like the local scenery, costumes and moods. Specifically in this regard, the contact was really great. What about the cast, then while pomp not their they looked so really impressive. That there are no complaints for the most part it is to those featured here on the Central areas, and plays an important role in the plot. What about Daniel Craig, he is fully in ease clear that people really tried to fit in the role of a mysterious detective. But despite it, they themselves of the characters in including the Central, virtually no reveals for with the exception of points with the primary motivation. It is the movie each they have their own motives, which they follow up to the final, from they can be some pacifiers, although it is possible that just part of the creators.

And the is no less the work of Ryan Johnson was quite a good dish. Yes, sometimes it has nedomolvili, sometimes made too sharp, but history General is addictive, and makes you watch what is happening up to the very end. Of course there's a little sagging, not too essential for the perception of dialogue, but the level is still more or less worthy, so I guess not will judge the work too harshly, the over there components of that work. Although a bit surprising that fact that the film was able to make a splash in theaters, more than seen in letting almost immediately to announce the continuation. Apparently the audience really had yearned for genre.

Yes, Yes, mystery, gentlemen detectives, which should solve: why Hollywood our days away from the detectives? That the genre, which is very colorful characters going to a remote manor house in the old castle, in the Orient Express and the center of attention is the corpse... and, of course, a killer among the eccentric characters. Not that people have lost the appetite for such attitudes; rather, the style of Agatha Christie outlived its usefulness, at least the big screen — replaced procedurally and moved to small TV screen in the format of a television series. With "Get the knife" Ryan Johnson shows that genre, which made his name of the aforementioned Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle, is still alive. Making the break between "Star wars", Johnson is back in creative comfort: after a variation on the theme of "tough detective" in the "Brick" Director chose to focus on suitable for him the story.

Novelist and the the best-selling writer is found dead! Cause of death — suicide? On is not so simple: this the writer Harlan Thrombi living in a remote mansion, there are three prospective heir. Elegant Linda, zealous world and a spoiled Jolie (and their children — the grandchildren of a wealthy writer) — they all had the motive to eliminate the 85-year-old Patriarch of the family. Now for the matter is taken by the police, in particular the famous detective.

The film "Get knives" is replete with many twists and turns of the plot, but the most unexpected twist is the desire of Johnson to treat it work as to Comedy. The Director could would make this movie an eccentric or even insane (for some reason on the game "Clue"), but in this case, "Knives" are still undoubtedly smart and serious project. Each element of the story is a real fun factor for fans of mysteries, for those viewers that I love to unravel complex cases. Johnson also managed to get the actors to talk nonsense with a serious mine, yeah to still enjoyed, i.e., to recreate a fine line between a tribute to the mastodons of the genre and parody.

It is difficult to argue that works but not working in "Knives", not going to the territory of spoilers, but suffice it to say that although the star cast is very prominent and positive element of the film, they still not important. For each of characters is thinly written background, forcing the viewer to focus on the suspects. Each of the characters gets his screen time — although the detective Benoit is the main character here, not here he is the most interesting personality. The modus operandi of the detective Benoit Blanca is simple: he recreates the night of the crime by careful examination, searching for clues, questioning suspects. At the Director deliberately shows viewers the "real" story (from the words of suspects, of course), so we aware what information the Form is not have. Because to observe the actions of Bloodhound becomes doubly interesting.

For many years, Daniel Craig showed the distance from the world of big movies, especially when there is played agent 007. His role Benoit Blanca deserves a place with his character "good Luck Logan": that is one best roles. The form — the American equivalent of the classic British detective; he is so effortless and immediate that love this character is simply impossible. The other actors in the film seem to enjoy this retro project: Chris Evans is experimenting with its diapazonom, and Ana de Armas still charming.

A delightful and witty detective Comedy is quite a complicated film and can be appreciated by fans of the movies old school — same relied on the individual in the frame framing their plot. After world "big movie" Ryan Johnson decided to focus on a more mundane movie, but involved in all your cinematic experience, in particular, starting with real pearls in the form of a script. It seems to "Get knives" — very balanced... a film project: he attractive on the part of the cast, so and part of the plot with decorations. Chamber and striking the film is intended for several views and if "Get knife" there is a shortage, is that the film is too... difficult, to seem trivial to the visitors to the multiplexes.

The outgoing year can boast of several projects remarkable dream-custom. It and the Duo of DiCaprio and pitt in "Once in Hollywood" and collected one of the brightest stars De Niro, Pacino, Hiking and live in  the"Irish" Martin Scorsese. "Get knives" (more recently, the official translation of the title sounded a lot more poetic — "Knives unsheathed") is not leads the list, but full of it is present.

Just look at this firework name — Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Plummer, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, don Johnson heavenly beauty of the Cuban-Spanish actress Ana de Armas. The latter have not the first unsuccessfully stormed Hollywood, and to still did mainly minor roles. In our case character de Armas is given much more screen time, and in the credits to the film, to be fair, it does cost to put first.

To portray this star deck will be in mostly unsuited Trombi family, each member for the course of the story becomes a suspect in the murder of the elderly head of the family — writer Harlan Trombi who made multi-million dollar fortune on detective novels. For investigation country house comes a colorful private detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig).

The object of the study directed by Rian Johnson (he's responsible for unfairly perebuvannya 8th episode of "Star wars" and one of the strongest episodes of the series "all grave"), is the society — the community, for various reasons, United in one contradictory body. With the first frame of the film is filled with anthropomorphic dolls and LP — a sort of "fake people," blanks that adorn the mansion Thrombi senior. Goes accurate, though, and thick a metaphor for duplicity and accordingly — falsity of the society (if you like — the U.S. but movie the idea Johnson was pretty universal). Cheat here trying of each there own, hidden from all unclean game.

Unfortunately, my own characters like the authors, when you lead with the audience of the game is the same questionable transparency. Not allowing for spoilers, you can say that the film gives the audience not that they (all or almost) expected. It would seem — Yes, exactly should work detective, and it is this false sense of confidence in the story should leave the commercials. However, in case "Get a knife" all this happened false, negative, and watching unexpected discouraging metamorphosis directly at the time of viewing, I want to pretend to be the most, Benoit Blanc, elegantly lounging at the fireplace thoughtfully blurts: "I suspect foul play".

The reason for this deception, the mismatch between expectations and result my opinion, was not the most successful advertising strategy, the fact is not just brings the attention of the audience in the wrong direction, why watch the movie would only more interesting, but we promise form sub-genre, which simply does not in the object of advertising.

And the right to the creators have coped with the unexpected orientation of the film, so no — the rhythm of the narrative that it strays, and characters and is periodically forced to say out loud why we should be interesting to follow the plot forward.

After watching you catch yourself on thought that "Get the knife" is not would as a negative reaction, whether it is not the original film, and the next part of the franchise about the inquisitive detective. Not the best, even weak, but at least inertia continues the signature tradition of the fictional movie series.

"Get knives" — good movie, but the relevance and actuality of the topic, he and is able to compete with a news release, but by comparing the result with what hope it was assigned, and bold as behaved him advertisers understand that we got one of the major disappointments of the year.
