Round 2! Still very enjoyable. It’s fun to see where the clues are throughout the movie. Still think that this is terrific performance by Daniel Craig. Just a supremely entertaining character.
Of course I’d like to see more films with Benoit Blanc but I’d love to see both detectives (Lakeith Stanfield and Noah Segan) also be included. They have small parts but some great moments and expressions.
It’s uncommon these days to have a movie that I’d love to watch with my entire family. Too bad it won’t be available via VOD by Christmas.
