Murder on the Orient Express


I like a good mystery movie every now and then but this is not it.

I like William Defoe, Johnny Depp and a few other actors/actress in the movie so I took a chance but what a crappy movie. I am not It sure if it a remake of the original, but if it is... watch the orginal instead.

Well that sucks. Iíve been waiting for it to hit HBO. Iíll still give it a try, but if it doesnít do much for me in the beginning Iíll quickly bail.

I watched it and thought it was okay. That being said, I didn't spend any money to see it. Worth sitting on the couch and watching...but I agree I wouldn't spend money to watch it.

Agreed - totally unwatchable, I was hoping for better.
Be nice to everyone you meet...but always have a plan to kill them.

Keneth Branagh, writer, producer, director, star and a complete tosser.
That's why the film missed.
Personally there will only be one Poirot, David Suchet, who was in another version of Murder on the Orient Express.
