Kenneth Branagh is a theater man at heart. So his spanking new version of the 1934 Dame Agatha Christie chestnut†Murder on the Orient Express†Ė Branagh directs and stars as world-famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot Ė feels more like an all-star, theatrically confined stage piece than something freshly reimagined for the screen. Its delights, including dazzling production design and period costumers, are decidedly retro, as is the plot: A man is murdered on the Orient Express. Poirot must interrogates a dozen strangers on the train, each a suspect in the bloody homicide.

Is it me or does it give off a Clue (the movie) vibe?

One of the things about Agatha Christie novels is they can be very funny at times (the Poirot ones anyway), but this looks campy.

I thought it was okay. Though it was quite predictable and a lot of things didn't really add up. Decent watch.

Can't say I'm excited to watch this, we all know the ending. I've seen the original movie many times.

I was surprised by Depp's short appearance, given his stature and his prominence in ads. I thought he'd have more time on-screen.

I donít think the role of Hercule Poirot can be done without David Suchet. He has studied and mimicked the character from the books to a tee

And I haven't watched or read the original, shame on me.

Without saying what it is, can someone who has seen it say if theyíve changed the ending from the book. Iím curious since the previous movie version made a small change, and from the trailer Iím kind of expecting a bigger one. But I love the book too much not to see this movie regardless.
