What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie, 'Murder on the Orient Express' tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone's a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. Kenneth Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast including Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.
To return to why Murder on the Orient Express was remade: Beats me. Maybe it's someone's idea of counterprogramming when every other film in the multiplex is for kids or yahoos. Maybe it's a tax shelter.
Like Poirot, Branagh - the director - is immensely attentive to fact and detail, including drawing a robust performance out of Branagh - the actor - playing the quirky detective with a mix of cheeky humor, vim and vigor.
