While on their honeymoon in Egypt, newlyweds Simon Doyle and Linett Ridgeway are constantly harassed by Simon's ex-fiancée Jackie De Bellefort who feels her ex-best friend has stolen the love of her life. A holidaying Hercules Poirot counsels Jackie to put an end to her antics, fearing that all of this can only end in tragedy. When one of the passengers is killed while on a cruise down the Nile, Poirot must sift through an odd assortment of passengers, all of whom may have something to hide. There is Linett's financial advisor from the US, her French maid who clearly has something to hide, the Austrian doctor who keeps mostly to himself and the left leaning philosopher who despises the rich.

A little disappointing
16 November 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

As another reviewer has pointed out we all know who dies, why, and who kills them. Therefore I won't go into that. I'll only say that I was pretty disappointed in the overall quality of the movie. I found it rather brooding and ponderous. I felt that everyone was trying to create a serious work. Ech. I found the entire production rather oppressive. These are people on holiday yet no one smiles at any time. Where's the old clever and wryly humorous Poirot? I still love this series. The use of the art deco settings and the rather jaded and decadent characters is always a pleasure to watch. The Egyptian scenery is truly breathtaking. My real problem is that I didn't really like or care about any of these characters.
