 the normally-terrifying Michael Shannon is a shrinking violet limping around with a cane, and so on.

Yeah,  flipping Shannon from the heavy to a the weak son was a brilliant turn.

Heard the studio has already green lit a sequel.  I'm guessing Craig's character solving another case?  How else could it go?

I don’t see it. Craig’s character was intriguing but they wont be able to replicate the success of this movie

Finally got around to watching. Entertaining movie with a lot of great performances, dragged on a bit long. Craig's accent was jarring, it probably didn't help that I recently re-watched the Bond movies but it took a bit of time to get used to. But I'm always a sucker for Craig chewing scenery regardless (see Road to Perdition).

Of the bit parts I liked Michael Shannon the best. The scene where he confronts Marta in the hallway and bangs his cane every time he speaks is genuinely menacing.

After watching it a couple weeks ago on one of the platforms, and aware of its success, I presumed immediately that future Daniel Craig as Foghorn Leghorn features would be in the works. I think it can be replicated. Fun whodunnit formula + smattering of known actors + scenery chewing Craig = easy box office success.

I enjoyed it, would watch concept again. And 52 year old Craig gets another serialized character, without all the bumps and bruises. 

(How about dropping him into a mystery in England, and neither he nor the other players can understand their respective accents? Would be a decent inside joke.)

If you haven't seen it yet, check out Layer Cake. Sorry about the trailer quality, but it's all I could find.

Daniel Craig was very good. He really pulled off the southern gentleman accent. I grew up listening to people who talked like him. I enjoyed him speaking like that much more than I did any of the actual southern gentlemen. 

craig’s accent was entertaining but a joke.  he really pulled off a hollywood southern accent, but maybe that’s what you meant.
