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.
