I'd gladly take this ride again, and I'd encourage you all to consider the same voyage.

The dots are not always connecting clearly when they are rolling rapidly, and while suspension of disbelief is needed for this whodunnit tale, Murder at the Orient Express is a well-crafted, old-fashioned and modish murder mystery with a fantastic twist.

My interest was maintained, but I would rather watch a film like this at home. This isn't the film to watch if you're seeking a thrill-ride; still, Murder on the Orient Express has enough steam to chug your attention through a couple of hours.

If you're seeking old Hollywood glamour, you'll find it here.

Despite a stellar cast, stunning locations and fabulous period detail this never gels, and the story creeps along. And though I'd forgotten whodunit in this classic Christie tale, I wasn't invested enough in finding out again.

When an 83-year old novel is more feminist than its modern film adaptation, you know there's something wrong.

Not quite a train wreck - but bloody close.

The equivalent of a fun summer read. What more can you ask for in a film like this?

The "What is a man?" speech from Hamlet Act IV Scene IV is no longer the most over-the-top thing Branagh has ever directed himself doing on top of a mountain.

Branagh is much better in the leading role than his as a director in this story, and he just can't craft a mystery that's worth investing in.

The lush visual moments are worth the price of admission alone, as is Branagh's charming and quirky performance.

In Murder on the Orient Express, director Kenneth Branagh breathes life into Agatha Christie's great detective, Hercule Poirot.

It's based on a good book set on a beautiful train, about a crime that is both preposterous and completely compelling. Every time I watch this story, my heart twinges with sorrow at the outcome.

The film struggles visually and narratively in places. As such, this version of the classic story doesn't present anything new or unique... does this story need to be retold?
August 28, 2018
Murder on the Orient Express is a consistently entertaining whodunit, and Christie's ending still holds up nearly a century after she first wrote it.

It's cool. It wasn't too long, and there was a lot more humor in it than I expected.
August 20, 2018
I have no experience with the source material or any Agatha Christie works in general... but from someone who had no horses in the race? I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would.

Poirot himself would have pointed out several of the movie's flaws, with the real mystery being how can a movie with so much talent feel so drab?
July 22, 2018
With no one to hold onto, Murder on the Orient Express stands as little more than a cliché mystery, and ultimately falls flat.
April 23, 2018
At the end of the day, Murder On The Orient Express is a fine film. It's incredibly well designed and meticulously detailed in its production.
