Kenneth Branagh conducts this investigative wonder, steamrolling its way into our hearts.
Hercule Poirot is a detective like no other, and this case is proving hard to crack, as he finds himself stranded upon the orient express amongst thirteen suspects and one very gruesome murder.
The location of filming throughout this films entirety is nothing short of spectacular, with every aspect of 1930s Europe being crafted with immaculate precision, making the cinematography a marvel to behold.
Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the worryingly long running time, which is corrupted with false endings throughout, confusing the audience’s senses as they try to grapple with the senseless accusations.
Though with a cast as acclaimed as this, the script manages to claw its way back by shining the light on the countless number of talented actors, from Josh Gad to Dame Judi Dench, making this film a bearable pleasure.
