A really bad adaptation, characters are flat.
Much, much better is the 2010 production with David Suchet,
also in the catalog. Best yet.

Pretty bad but worth watching just for Kenneth Branagh's ridiculous moustache

I loved this version of the film! I've re-watched it several times and will probably buy it to be able to watch it anytime I want. One reason, no doubt, is that I like Kenneth Branaugh as an actor, and I don't like David Suchet any more. I used to like him, but after seeing him in so many Poirot films I grew quite tired of him, and by the time he made his version of Orient Express I thought he was tired of it, too.
The thing I most got tired of with Suchet was his habit, as Poirot, of referring to himself in the 3rd person. Also, his vanity was just boring.
So it is a huge relief to see this fascinating story told with entirely new actors in a new way. Loved it!

Kenneth Branagh's portrayal of Poirot is grotesque. I was very disappointed in this remake of a Christie classic. If someone was watching for the first time, it is a very choppy storytelling with no clear geographical start and hard to follow. The real Poirot is very sure of himself in a classy understated way (David Suchet) this actor is a braggart and very hard to like. They filled the cast with popular stars, but did a disservice to them all. Badly done. Don't waste your time.

This movie was awful and I've read the book and watched the 1974 version which is so much better, don't waste your time with this one.

I didn't really like the ending, it was slightly weird. But over all it was good.

I preferred the book but this was still a decent movie. Good cast and setting.

Wonderfully acted, interesting story and characters with a bold, dramatic, bittersweet ending. I'm happy.

If you don't like Johnny Depp then you'll love this movie! **Spoiler** Depp is murdered and quite viciously too. Besides Johnny Depp still getting roles in big movies, this movie could have been a little more faster paced. It was a good movie but a bit more action would have made it great.
