Storyline

Agatha Christie's classic whodunit speeds into the twenty-first century. World-famous sleuth Hercule Poirot has just finished a case in Istanbul and is returning home to London onboard the luxurious Orient Express. But, the train comes to a sudden halt when a rock slide blocks the tracks ahead. And all the thrills of riding the famous train come to a halt when a man discovered dead in his compartment, stabbed nine times. The train is stranded. No one has gotten on or gotten off. That can only mean one thing: the killer is onboard, and it is up to Hercule Poirot to find him. Written by HNSampat-2

this is dreadful
27 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an awful adaptation.

It's so obvious that CBS just dragged this out again to maximize the popularity of Alfred Molina these days (Spiderman 2, Fiddler on the Roof).

The only aspect of this production that held my interest was the set design/art direction. The acting was totally "Movie of the Week", as was the script.

This really did not need to be udpated. Who was it updated for? Those that enjoyed the original will be disappointed.

It's just dreadful.

Avoid it.
