An American movie actress, best known for playing dumb blondes, is Scotland Yard's prime suspect when her husband, Lord Edgware, is murdered. The great detective, Hercule Poirot, digs deeper into the case.
In this travelogue, Sir Peter Ustinov, who played Dame Agatha Christie's Belgian detective Hercule Poirot six times, journeys across Europe aboard the world famous Orient Express train, the setting of Poirot's most famous adventure.
Hercule Poirot (Sir Peter Ustinov) attends a dinner party in which one of the guests clutches his throat and suddenly dies. The cause seems to be natural until another party with most of the same guests produces another corpse.
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
This has got to be the worst Agatha Christie movie made. You never and i say NEVER modernize Agatha Christie. SHe probably rolled in her grave more than once. I was so upset that i didn't even finish the movie, i kept on giving it bad reviews after bad reviews. I had to laugh at all the dialogue because it was terrible. Hercule Poirot never used a computer in his lifetime, why have one now. The movie has nothing to do with the book, except for some of the characters and the murder. THe book also takes place in the 1920's or 30's. I feel that if you want a good movie watch the 1975 version with albert finney. 0/5
