Death on the Nile Reviews

September 25, 2020
Death on the Nile is an admirable addition to the Christie-on-film canon with a cast of game, if sometimes hammy, actors and just the right amount of murder, mystery and mayhem.

Once it gets going, Death on the Nile is bright and leisurely, like a vacation, and the notes of humor are enough to keep things from getting too heavy.

It takes an uncommonly long time for murder to actually transpire and director Guillermin has not known how to take up the slack.

There is not one likeable character among the extensive cast, which results in the logical reaction of being indifferent to the plot and its development. [Full Review in Spanish]

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
