 Rated 7/10
Great fun.

A satire of / homage to the Poirot / Sherlock Holmes / Clue (Cluedo) gentleman sleuth in manor house stories.

(It even makes very self aware jokes about itself)

As such, it's a chance for the assembled cast to have fun hamming it up to the max as the usual cartoon-ish characters you find in this kind of movie... But that is cleverly balanced and contrasted against characters that are more real, and themselves find this mob perplexing, like the police detective, who is very straight-laced and competent, but who is accompanied by a goofy state trooper and Daniel Craig's extraordinary Deep South Gentleman Sleuth.

And for all it's stock zaniness and cliches, these are wrapped around a central, realistic (ish) human story and believable character played by Ana De Armas.

I'm not sure it quite hits the heights it was hoping to, or if these contrasts gel entirely, but it is very enjoyable, convoluted, with ridiculous plot devices and a fair few good moments of comedy...

And at the very least, it has James Bond, Captain America, and General Zod all in one movie, and you can't say that about many other films! :)
