    My co-workers had spoiled the ending before I watched it, so I am not sure I can give a fair assessment. The tension was missing for me, since I already knew who did it. However, regarding the quality of the other of the movie's elements... this could have gone straight to TV. The performances were really unimpressive here.

    Agatha Christie's "Crooked House" is a gripping tale that will keep you at the edge of your seats most of the time. Only most of the time because the film is oddly paced, moving either too fast or too slow. However, this is compensated for by the captivating performances of the talented cast members and the elaborate mystery that Agatha Christie herself considered one of her personal favorites. I was a bit disappointed by the detective Charles Hayward because his character was flat and static although the flashbacks offered potential. He was also nothing more than a device used to let the audience into the dysfunctional family's lives. Unlike Poirot, he was unable to reach conclusions without having them shoved into his face. I still thoroughly enjoyed the film and would recommend it to anyone who has not read the book. Knowing the twist could diminish the charm of the movie.

    Being a huge fan of Christie's work and having read the novel, I was very excited to watch this movie especially when considering the cast. Crooked House benefits from strong performances, beautiful sets and costumes, and gripping cinematography that all contribute to a greatly enjoyable experience. The film also stays true to the novel which is a rarity in most book adaptations.

    What fun to see this overlooked Agatha Christie mystery on the big screen! And with an ensemble that includes Max Irons who keeps a straight face through the extreme dottiness provided by Glenn Close...
