MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS All aboard for a good old-fashioned murder mystery! This star-studded film based on the Agatha Christie novel tells the tale of beloved detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh), who finds himself caught up in a mysterious murder with a train full of suspicious passengers. It’s a fascinating whodunnit story, but for those who are fans of the original 1974 film or the book, you might be left disappointed. While Michelle Pfeiffer and
Dame Judi Dench both put in excellent performances, the storyline feels slow in parts. The train was the real star of the show with the beautiful cinematography emphasising the lavish carriages.
