    So-so. Purist Agatha Christie fans should lighten up - who cares if Poirot was embellished. A movie should not necessarily carbon copy the book - Branagh was fine in the role. A bigger problem may have been the fantastical improbability of the entire mob murder and their attempt to cover it up. It just seemed kind of far fetched to me. But kind of enjoyed it still. 3 stars.

    Kenneth Branagh did a good job directing the film but could have found someone other than himself to play Poirot. Otherwise an excellent movie and a great cast.

    A big, resounding BOOOO! For Agatha Christie fans, watching Kenneth Branagh attempt to recreate Christie's little Belgian detective was painful. What an abomination. Hercule Poirot meets James Bond. The accent was bad, his physical appearance is the polar opposite, the dialogue, the mannerisms, I could go on. Hercule Poirot was NOT ATHLETIC. This movie is strictly for fans of the action genre, it has no resemblance to anything Agatha ever wrote and especially not her best-selling novel Murder on the Orient Express.

    As a spoof (surely) of the Christie book, this film ranks right up there with the wannabe 1985 comedy "Lust in the Dust." Does anyone (really) take this seriously --the five-star ratings and kudos notwithstanding?
