Murder on the Orient Express (2017)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery
I have always been a fan of an Agatha Christie Murder Mystery and I was very excited to see this movie adaptation 🙂 . The cast is absolutely amazing in this with the likes of Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Johnny Depp and Judi Dench creating excellent characters to the screen 😀 . The setting was great especially the look of the train and the costumes were good. I liked the scene with the train getting stuck in the snow and the level of drama in this movie was high 🙂 . The flow ran well and the story was entertaining and captivating (though we might as well give that credit to Agatha Christie’s Novel 😛 ). I did enjoy the plot twist and the connections we learnt about the death of someone in the past (would say who but that would spoil the story 😛 ). I did really enjoy this movie but I was not wowed by this either. This felt like any other murder mystery show that I could watch on a lazy Sunday evening. Nothing specially different from this film except for its huge amount of major stars (which is probably its element that will make people watch this 😛 ). Also, I am a little biased about Poirot because as much as Kenneth Branagh tried (and did fairly well) I still only see David Suchet as Poirot. That huge moustache was a little distracting (not in a good way 😛 ) but I did get over it fairly quickly and was not bored. Overall, this is a great movie for those who love Agatha Christie movies and don’t mind seeing a new remake. This is not the best I have ever seen but worth a watch 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
