In this adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic mystery novel, Hercule Poirot (played by the director of the film, Kenneth Branagh) needs to return to London for a case, so he hops aboard the Orient Express. While on the train, a murder happens, and it is up to Poirot to discover the murderer among the passengers.
This movie has an all-star cast, including Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Josh Gad, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench, and many more. I have never read this particular Agatha Christie novel, so I had no clue who was the murderer. I was definitely surprised with the end result. The movie started off somewhat slow in the beginning, but as it neared the end, it picked up and became more exciting, especially trying to figure out who committed the murder. While I won’t need to see this movie again, I would recommend it to anyone who likes Agatha Christie, or slow-burning murder mysteries.
