Peter Ustinov is as affable as always, but Agatha Christie's dreary formula just looks silly in this day and age.

One of my fave Agatha Christie films, all star cast with twists and turns all the way.

I love Maggie Smith trying to solve this along with Poirot's nose, Diana Rigg is a pretty glorious victim.

She could always throw her legs up higher than anyone. And wider!

Very good murder mystery! Great cast. Peter Ustinov is a fabulous Poirot and Maggie Smith and James Mason were great like always. Guy Hamilton is a fabulous director for his genres. I loved it!

Not overly well thought of when it was first released the film has the best of the Hollywood Poirots in Peter Ustinov, a clever script, a first rate cast, beautiful locations and the music of Cole Porter. First rate.

Poirot on a case that gives the shivers. At a remote, beautiful, yet mysterious island things don't always go as planned. When a rich woman is murdered and everybody has an alibi, Poirot starts an investigation of the most difficult kind. While it might seem impossible to find the killer, the clues start to add up perfectly in the classic act of show-and-tell.

First-class Christie adaptation. Ustinov rules, while the supporting cast, especially the wonderful Maggie Smith, provide solid back-up. It delivers the goods.

A light-hearted adaptation of a classic Agatha Christie Story. Well done. Great ensemble cast.

Let's face it 'Evil Under The Sun' isn't easy to adapt without loosing at least 50% of the story but this adaptation does it best. It looses the right 50% to leave the film entertaining , suspenseful , dramatic , funny and leave room for great script , acting , sets and scenes on the beautiful island. Plus no mortal or immortal can beat Ustinov's performance as Hercule Poirot (thou Suchet came close enough).

brilliant plot, writing

Starts a little slow, because in Hercule Poirot stories, you have to establish all the suspects before you get to the murder. But it's fun to watch Ustinov unravel the mystery.

Brilliant film. Saw it as a teenager and watched it again today with Nonie. Great actors, great location and great story.

Evil Under The Sun is a very suspenceful motion picture. This film has numerous captivating characters and a plot riddled with edge of your seat twists and turns. If you are look for a great murder mystery film than you should seriously consider watching Evil Under The Sun.

**1/2 (out of four)

Entertaining, but just passable Agatha Christie mystery with Peter Ustinov reprising his role as the Belgium sleuth Hercule Poirot.

Everyone is a suspect at the beach front resort when a stage star is strangled. Not bad, but a definite comedown from both "Murder on the Orient Express" and "Death on the Nile."
