The film's strong performances are overshadowed by the overall dull mystery story.

The all-star cast brings this movie together. It has great lines that actually makes this movie a thrill to watch! I loved every second of this movie!

Typical Agatha Christie affair, where everything is right in front of you, and you still didn't figure it out yourself. The gem of this film is it's all-star cast.

While Lansbury makes a marvelous Miss Marple but the real delight in this film is watching Taylor and Novak rip each other to shreds, and in such swank surroundings. Probably much more fun than it really warrants.

I hate Elizabeth Taylor's voice.

An all-star cast usually indicates a lack of substance in a film -- one that relies on flashiness over story telling. The Mirror Crack'd is no exception. Nevertheless, it is an enjoyable film despite its credulity-stretching reveal and typical confession-without-compelling-evidence resolution. It's a fun lark, but not serious film...and the cat fights should be on every diva-watcher's "must see" list.

Watching Mirror Crack'd is like eating crackers. Simple, straight forward and you don't think about it afterwards. It has a rather attractive wrapper in terms of the stellar cast but it does not add any taste to the content inside.
PS : a curious discovery. You'll catch a glimpse of a young and handsome ex 007 Pierce Bronson as Jamie-the-actor in a dialogueless role.

A rather dull and very talky whodunnit. Only the star studded cast can make you forget that you really don't care 'who-dun-did-it'.

How can something with so many classic stars in be so bad?! It's almost so bad that it's good...!!

Sometimes I think Ms. Marple has a fetish involving suicides. But other than that, a charming and funny movie and a very classic Marple.

The Mirror Crack'd is a nostalgic throwback to the genteel British murder mystery pix of the 1950s. The big-name cast is a great, nostalgic throwback to the 1950s, when its players' names -- Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Kim Novak, Tony Curtis -- graced giant theater marquees. Both Miss Taylor and Miss Novak, as larger-than-life silver-screen rivals of a certain age, get all wound up for some fancy, high-toned tongue-lashings, but the material isn't up to their power. Watching Novak and Taylor lay into each other verbally is a treat. Whether that should be what you come away with from a Miss Marple movie is another consideration. Taylor has an uproarious good time as she trades bitchy insults with Kim Novak. Adroit supporting performances are given by Tony Curtis, Rock Hudson as Taylor's husband and director, and Geraldine Chaplin. The Mirror Crack'd is a midly enjoyable Agatha Christie mystery.

VERDICT: "In The Zone" - [Mixed Reaction] These kinds of movies are usually movies that had some good things, but some bad things kept it from being amazing. This rating says buy an ex-rental or a cheap price of the DVD to own. If you consider cinema, ask for people's opinion on the film. (Films that are rated 2.5 or 3 stars)

As usual with a star studded cast, your focus gets lost, and the story gets boring. Other than that, the mystery is pretty interesting. If you're a fan of these kind of films, watch it, it's pretty good.

The cast alone is worth a star.

Decent murder mystery with Angela Lansbury as the ingenious miss Marple. Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson both play central characters.
March 20, 2012
Angela Lansbury makes for a terrific Miss Marple (something of a dry run for her eventual MURDER, SHE WROTE stint), she's backed by a swell supporting cast, and Christie's premise is a good one. Guy Hamilton's direction, on the other hand, is unremarkable and a bit too restrained (surprising, given his very solid and energetic work in the 007 series). Passable murder mystery cinema, but nothing to get too excited over.

A little slow in the start, and a little flabby in the middle, but like most Agatha Christie adaptions, the ending is quite the doozy.

Angela Lansbury is too tall to be Miss Marple, but I love her anyway and think she did a nice job. Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson give good performances.
½ October 24, 2011
All-star cast! Suspenseful story, but a bit slow-moving. (Oh the British.) I'm not always an Elizabeth Taylor fan but I like her here, and Edward Fox is charming.
