Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
To prove that he still is strong and powerful, Philippe Douvier decides to kill Clouseau. Once news of his "death" has been announced, Clouseau tries to take advantage of it and goes undercover with Cato to find out who tried to kill him.
A psychological thriller based on the novel by Agatha Christie. Ten strangers are forced to come face to face with their dark pasts after receiving invitation to an isolated island off the coast of England.
First time I watched this movie was more than 20 years ago. I had a chance to watch it again and decided to write a review.
USSR adaptations are known to be very faithful to the original work. This is no different.
While the movie wasn't too bad, I felt it lacked in several ways. Except for Mr. Poirot and Ms Buckley, the rest of the characters were boring. I felt like they were just there to say the words and lacked any point (as we all know, the supporting cast is there to raise doubt and create confusion in regard to the motives).
Each of her friends was there to create a motive, but it was not explored in depth. While I had doubts about each, there was nothing to help leading me down the wrong path.
Unless you are a fan of Agatha Christie's work, this is not a movie for you.
