MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS (2017) movie review

When a novel becomes a film we all get front row seats on a trek into the familiar. As promised, it’s a lovely shady whodunit – every passenger a suspect, every side-glance a confession of guilt. Star-studded, humorous, curious, mysterious, we step onto the train platform with the famous detective Hercule Poirot in order to solve a crime and a murder. The old tale and BBC favorite has been masterfully reimagined by Kenneth Branagh, both director and main character.From point A to point B, this dangerous journey is thwarted with clues and interviews captured from every creative camera angle. Bright colors glint over the snowy landscape as crisply cast characters reveal nothing until the dastardly finale. It’s a brilliant film, beautifully created and worth seeing.
