The way the investigation plays out is more dynamic than that in Orient Express, with less of a focus on interrogation only and more twists and turns to come, and the ending is very satisfying.
Fun, if not cookie-cutter, Agatha Christie-based flick w/Peter Ustinov fine as Det. Hercule Poirot.
A fine Agatha Christie adaptation, made more watchable because of its all-star cast
Death on the Nile is a fine entertainment that is lovely to look at and easy to enjoy.
Not bad if a bit dry.
Okay whodunit suffers by comparison with Murder on the Orient Express.
Great locations (that may not even be available for filing these days), really great costumes, thrilling story with a surprise ending. What more could you want?! Lansbury is marvelously over-the-top as a faded lush. Ustinov really is the best Poirot ever bringing both humor and gravity when needed. On the down side: Niven plays his usual, shallow stock character; and the poorly-rendered foreign accents are a bit distracting. (I'm looking at you, Jack Warden!) Bette Davis struggles a little, but she still pulls it off. Despite the minor faults, it's a thoroughly enjoyable film.
Not nearly as good as Murder On the Orient Express, even a step down from Evil Under the Sun, but colorful Christie tale with fine production values and a good cast with Angela Lansbury, Bette Davis and Maggie Smith standing out. One of the problems is overlength another is a too deliberate pace but if yo're a mystery fan still a worthwhile watch. Ustinov of course is perfect as Poirot.
This is pretty great TV Movie based upon the Novel written by Agath Christie with late Sr.Peter Ustinov and Angela Lansberry as a Alcoholic widow. It was funny to see Lanburry as an Alcoholic.
It's an old-fashioned Whodunit which IS a bit dated, but the story is still good
