Storyline

Recovering from a sudden collapse, Poirot finds little comfort in doctor's orders confining him to a strict regimen at an island health resort with Captain Hastings. However, better medicine is to be found in the murder of another guest, a famous film actress, and a long list of suspects. Written by Mark Cabot Robinson

Enjoyable
15 July 2003 | by (El Cajon, California) – See all my reviews

As with the late Jeremy Brett and Sherlock Holmes, I can only see David Suchet as Agatha Christies "Hercule Poirot", though Peter Ustinov was a great actor. "Evil Under the Sun" is much as the Poirot mysteries of the past. The wonderful characters of Hastings(Hugh Fraser), Miss Lemon(Pauline Moran) and Chief Inspector Japp(Philip Jackson)join Poirot in the solving of a mystery on England's South Coast at a health spa. As the story continues, each character reveals a little bit more of their personalities, and the watcher sees each has gotten a reason to kill Arlena Stuart(Louise Delamere). There are several twists and turns and the ending is surprising, yet as the ending appears all the answers were already there if the watcher looks closely.

I do recommend this film for all those who love Agatha Christie and David Suchet. My only wish; I would hope that David Suchet would think seriously of making "Murder on the Orient Express".
