I normally like Josh Gad but with the screen time divided between so many actors and actresses, he was kneecapped by a lack of room to show his stuff. And that's before the story starts juggling the remaining 12 suspects into the 12 agonizing labours of Hercules. This is an adult movie though; the trailer makes it look there's going to be more action and there isn't. She appealed to people's humanity and intelligence, creating one of the most popular characters in the history of literature, not to mention a pantheon of assertive female characters and humane male characters, breaking stereotypes 80 years ago that, unfortunately, still survive today. .

Watch David Suchet's virtuoso performance in the 2010 Murder on the Orient Express. And the tragedy is--she even predicted you would do it. As director and leading actor, Branagh has turned this movie into one of the most excessive, narcissistic films ever made. Final straw was Kenneth Branagh's moustache which seemed to distract from his dialogue rather than add to it a la Nanny McPhee. Most viewers would do well to skip this one. All you did was play to the lowest common denominator, appealing to our baser instincts while maintaining arguably the most brilliant whodunnit plot of all time.
What were these people thinking? In the end, who could be the killer? But really, all we want is an old fashioned murder mystery. Or better yet, read the book. If I were much younger, I would not hunger for the movies from the Directors Period in the 70s and 80s when they were allowed to make Great Movies rather than only the money-men. I think those who are not familiar with Agatha Christie, Poirot, or the story may very well like this movie. Not every film has to dumb itself down to cater to the lowest common denominator, and I really enjoy it when a film tells me to engage my suspension of disbelief and simply entertain me. So, I liked Poirot and you needed a charismatic character at the centre because the other characters don't get developed much until the murder goes down.
Some people have complained that the movie is too comedic but without those opportunities to laugh, the beginning of this movie would be unbearably slow. Firstly, the film is undeniably beautiful, the costumes, sets, filming etc, the film will undoubtedly win an Oscar for the visuals. Poirot is despondent that his hotly anticipated break is being interfered, however Bouc offers to take him to France on the Orient Express. Branagh is wise to linger on this stuff and it adds to the escapism that the story can provide. Little did he know that a murder was planned and that a person on this train was able of committing such crime. We also get to see past events through an old-timey projector and the characters watch it like a movie.
So, what do you do when you want to bring them back? But, it quickly goes downhill from here. Bye, bye Branagh, you made no friends with this tripe. Don't get me wrong I think that Kenneth Branagh is a fine actor and director. Michelle Pfeiffer sold out in her role as Caroline, it was nice to see her again. The plot follows Poirot, a world-renowned detective, as he seeks to solve a murder on the in the 1930s.
Those moments are like the spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. That about sums it up. Difficult Kenneth Branagh makes, produces, and stars in good movies, and this version of Murder on the Orient Express features impressive sets, beautiful scenery, and lovely period clothes. Add the mouthwatering cast in a plot that thickens into one of the most ingenious yet baffling cases penned by Christie and we have a first class whodunit in this day and age of cinema. My review does not contain spoilers, there's not enough substance to spoil anything. Just like any great detective thriller, we don't know what's going on and we must unravel the mystery just as Poirot does.
I gave this movie a 5 out of 10 purely because I love Agatha Christie stories. I don't mean this as a criticism though, the fact that Hercule is witty and funny along with being brilliant is much needed levity for this movie. As if we needed any more proof of Hollywood's hypocrisy in the treatment of women and sex in our films and normalizing toxic gender stereotypes in both male and female characters. Oh yes, he's the mystic seer. Albert Finney played Poirot and he was delicious and got an Oscar nomination for it.
We get to go to Istanbul, Jerusalem and travel in snowy vistas. Unfortunately, fate has its own plans for him as a murder most foul I have always wanted to use that phrase in a review happens during a snowstorm that derails the train. I squirmed and squirmed waiting for it to end. Like the bloodied victim, something dies very early in the film. If you have never seen the 1974 original. Tragedy finally struck this movie with lack of flavour in the editing and soundtrack selections. I left wanting to read this book and they hint at a possible sequel that I would also be interested in seeing.
