    A remake that keeps faith with the original novel

    Both this and the original film which was made in the 70's are faithful to Agatha Christie's storyline. Both portray Hercule Poirot as the fastidious detective who sees meaning in small details that everyone else overlooks. The remake is beautifully filmed with special effects that are worthy of today's technology. The cast is very good whether we're talking about the main characters or some of the "lesser" roles. Everyone does an outstanding job in playing their characters. One of Ms. Christie's hallmarks was her ability to create a diverse group of suspects that if you don't know the ending in advance, keeps you guessing right up to the reveal. Well worth picking up.

    I have watched the 1974 Albert Finney version of Orient Express more times than I can remember. I also love the 2001 Alfred Molina TV movie version, he's one of my favorite actors. So here we have another "updated" version. They shook things up a little, changed plot points here and there, but never the less it's still an amazing story and this cast and crew did a great job. The cast is amazing and Kenneth Branagh as Poirot does a wonderful job. Haha, and its also great to see Daisey Ridley without a lightsaber in her hand for a change. :o) I definitely recommend this movie, I think you'll enjoy the small differences and the cast a great deal.

    To be honest, I think of David Suchet when I think of Hercule Poirot. Kenneth Branagh directs and stars as the great detective. It seems like he pretty much ripped off Suchet, in my opinion. I would have liked to have seen him take a few more risks, but it’s still a very good performance. The movie works. The cast, the production, everything is great. It’s a product of it’s source material which is a product of its time. As such, there’s not a lot of action in the modern Hollywood sense but for fans of old school mystery stories and movies I highly recommend it.

    A Classic Remake

    My wife and I saw this in theaters when it was first released and decided that it was worthy of being in our collection. This is our first foray into 4K movies and a winner it is! While the soundtrack is ever so slightly less than the best, the cinematography and special effects are really first rate. As to the story, how can you screw up a classic? Well, you can't and this version certainly doesn't. So by all means, buy it and enjoy it again. By any measure, this is a really worthy addition to any collection.

    Whodunit's are not usually what I pay for at movies. Usually I'll wait for them to come out on TV. Well me and my girlfriend where enjoying and evening out and just decided to give this movie a shot, not really expecting anything just enjoying our time together. The movie turns out to be awesome from start to finish. I liked it so much that I bought on 4K bluray to watch again. Even my 9 and 11 year old couldn't move when the saw it. It's a great movie, go see it.

    A True Mystery You Won't Forget

    Although not all critics may agree, this was a great mystery to be solved and not having seen the original film or read the book it really kept the ending if it were the same across all renditions a treat for the mind. Besides the film being beautiful to watching in 4K HDR, it's nice to get a feel of what it might of been like to be aboard such a luxurious train. The cast of course was top notch as well and firing on all cylinders!

    Superior 4k blu ray. Mediocre movie

    Visually the HDR enhanced video is detailed and impressive, though occasionally spoiled by a slightly unnatural color scheme and obvious CGI. The film itself is less charming and less coherent than the Lumet version. And the film making too grandiose for the modestly scaled story. In this world of luxury stick with the '74. It was a better year.
