    Would have made a better movie for TV. Dull acting, by big stars. Not much suspenders.

    Kenneth Branagh should have cast someone else as Poirot. Worst portrayal of Poirot ever. Was David Suchet not available? Or did he turn down this disastrous, over dramatic plot?

    the mustache with side burns was overplay on a feature you wish to replicate-annoyed me during the entire movie except when I feel asleep during the monotone dialogue-the wit and charm of the original Poirot was missing-boo

    Too centered on Poirot character and not enough on the rest of the characters. I found it rather slow, didn't fall asleep, but heard of others who did. Doesn't compare to the earlier version.

    The movie was very enjoyable. The characters were played quite competently. Branaugh was the perfect Poirot with that undeniable wit and charm. The plot was very engaging and the movie flowed with energetic ease. I was glued to the screen from start to finish. The ending was a bit disappointing but the set up was marvellous. I recommend this to anyone who loves a great mystery.

    Not the type of film I usually see, but entertaining enough. Problem with this film is some of the scenes are full of mistakes: The bridge the train is stuck on is supposed to be more then hundred feet high, but another shot it only looks about 10 feet high. Suppose to be winter people talk outside with no breath. Also, the end shot is crap, the train that is supposed to ride into the sunset has to stop for almost a minute before the film ends, it becomes very obvious the film is shot in a studio stage. This type of amateurish mistakes ruins the whole experience.
