A DisappointmentI was in the mood for a good murder mystery, but this one failed to deliver. It's difficult to fault the source material, as it was written for a different medium and a different time. And while I usually prefer adherence to the original over adaptation, I think the director missed an opportunity to update HOW the story was told. My biggest complaint is the time spent establishing characters felt like it lingered too long on the unimportant and rushed past (or missed entirely) good moments; furthermore, the attempts to portray Poiroit as a tortured genius didn't really connect with me either. The movie looked great, so there's that--I think it just missed the mark with the storytelling..Score: 2/5

This train comes off the tracks unfortunately.Great cast, great premise, great setting, but the story is not great nor is it good but it is bad. Perhaps it is interesting how the story seems to come off of the tracks the same time when the express train in the movies comes off of the tracks. That’s about when the backstory begins about how the person who is murdered actually himself murdered a baby. Enough said..Score: 2/5

LikedI liked the movie. Yes Mr. Depp was my favourite character. But I must confess it was the set and the costumes that I liked the most. It is enough to make one want to redecorate and copy the elegance and formality of the the 1930s. If only the majority of the populace could have enjoyed such privilege..Score: 5/5
Good Version.Enjoyed,yet another remake of Agatha Christie's,"Murder on the Orient Express"Great cast,good special effects,except maybe Kenneth Branagh,s mustache..Score: 5/5
Save your moneyGiving this movie a 2 star is generous. The only good performance was Johnny Depp, Olivia Colmam and Penelope Cruz. Very poor performances from everyone else. Many changes,important clues and libraries taken. Things just did not come together. It seemed to me that Kenneth Branagh was having a love fest with himself. If Albert Finny was alive I would be sending him an apology for going to see the re-make. After the movie I went home to watched the 1974 version..Score: 2/5
Great expectationsI avoided this film largely based on some of the negative reviews here however, curiosity eventually won out. I came to this film familiar with the earlier version with Albert Finney which I had enjoyed very much, so I came with some expectation to be disappointed. But to my relief and surprise I found myself enjoying this version, in fact I think that if I had not been familiar with the older version I would have liked this one even more. Firstly, most of us coming to this story are already familiar with the plot and therefore are coming mostly to see how this new group of people are going to handle the material and for my money I think Mr. Branagh and his cast and crew handle the material very well. The production values are excellent as is the cast and as someone from Malta I always enjoy seeing it in the background even when it's standing in for Jerusalem and Istanbul. Secondly, although Mr Branagh is not my favourite Piorot he is a consummate actor and does a reasonably good job, although I admit it took me some time to adjust to the moustache. Lastly, I would heartily recommend this version especially to those coming to this story for the first time, and especially to those without foreknowledge of the plot or familiarity with other actors' interpretations of the Poiroit role..Score: 4/5
Murder On The Orient ExpressConsidering the stellar cast in this movie I expected it to be better. Long episodes of nothing really going on. Not enough tension for a murder mystery. The version of this movie with David Suchet as Poirot is much better..Score: 3/5

Poor Excuse of a RemakeAdmitidly I did not have any high hopes for this film when I first saw the character design of Hercule Poirot by making his "ridiculous mustache" even more rediculous. However, to give Kenneth Branagh some credit as he was able to copy some manarisms from professionals Albert Finney and David Suchet's performances, and then added a number of uncharateristic behavious to create his version of Agatha Christie's detective. Besides his performance, the other actors were alright for audiences, who are unfamiliar with this story or original movies, to watch. Not only was the plot and case evidence presented poorly but the internal conflicts and deeper trageties of characters was lost. Especially that of Monsieur Poirot. I highly recommend that whomever has watched or wants to watch this version should also take the necessary time to view either the 1974 movie starring Albert Finney as Poirot, Ingrid Bergman as Gretta, Lauren Bacall as Mrs. Hubbard, and Sean Connery and Colonel Arbuthnot; Or, my personal recommendation, tv episode starring David Suchet as Poirot, Toby Jones as Ratchett, Barbara Hershey as Mrs. Hubbard and Jessica Chastain as Mery Debenham. "The little gray cells" will find the original motion pictures more substantial that this fluffy remake..Score: 2/5
