Netflix viewers are absolutely loving a bit of pre-Christmas murder mystery in the form of Glass Onion, the sequel to Rian Johnson's 2019 crime caper Knives Out.
The sequel released in cinemas for a short time a while ago, but the movie has now launched on Netflix and audiences are enjoying the chance to settle down and watch a bunch of rich people try to kill each other.
In classic 'whodunnit' fashion, a group of people are all invited to a luxury island by billionaire entrepreneur Miles Bron (Edward Norton), who is hosting a murder mystery party they're all going to participate in - with him as the victim.
Inevitably the game is going to go wrong and someone gets murdered for real, leaving everyone else trapped on the island with a killer who could choose to strike again.
Luckily, one of those invited is gentleman detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) and it's up to him to investigate the crime and track down the killer, peeling back all the layers of the case until he can uncover the truth.
That's all we'll say about the movie as far as the plot is concerned, otherwise we risk spoiling it for you and that would be a shame because so many people have been praising the film.
Glass Onion only just released today (23 December) on Netflix but social media has already been flooded with people calling it 'one of the best movies of the year'.
It's certainly a late entry considering there's pretty much only one week left in the year, but viewers have called it 'the perfect cap to the year' so it's all good.
Some viewers loved the movie so much they're already calling for a sequel, saying "Glass Onion was so much fun I want a third Knives Out film".
It even won over viewers who "didn't think any mystery could follow up Knives Out" but were blown away by yet another intriguing puzzle to solve.
A few even went so far as to call the movie a 'masterpiece', praising it for being 'brilliantly acted and just smack dab fun'.
If the movie's Rotten Tomatoes scores are anything to go by then this praises isn't out of the ordinary, as it's sitting at 93 percent approval from both critics and audiences.
If you're sitting around on Christmas Day wondering what you should stick on while waiting for the turkey to cook then you might just have your answer.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is available to stream now on Netflix.
