Hercule Poirot, the best detective in the world decides to leave on the Orient Express. The train accidentally gets stopped because of a small avalanche. Little did he know that a murder was planned and that a person on this train was able of committing such crime. Will he solve this murder before the train starts working again?Written by
Kenneth Branagh (Hercule Poirot), Judi Dench (Princess Dragomiroff), Derek Jacobi (Masterman), Richard Clifford (maître d' and Jacobi's real-life partner), Gerard Horan (Aynesworth) and Miranda Raison (Sonia Armstrong) all appeared in the biopic My Week with Marilyn (2011). My Week with Marilyn also featured Toby Jones, who played Ratchett (the murder victim) in the 2010 television adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express, alongside David Suchet as Poirot. The adaptation was a feature-length episode of the long-running crime drama Agatha Christie's Poirot (1989-2013). See more »
On the train station in Brod, Poirot is talking to two policemen of color, which makes no sense for 1930s Yugoslavia. See more »

I love this story and I was really looking forward to the remake. With all of today's technology and the real life location shots, I was expecting spectacular. What I got was a dud.
I was not expecting for them to change character names, drop characters, have other characters change their professions, add chases (can you really see Poirot chasing someone?), Poiroit making light of his OCD (really???), a derailment, a stabbing (not Rachett), a shooting, etc that never happened in the story. Also left out was some of the logic leading to the solution. They could have made a splendid movie with all the great scenery, CGI, etc., without changing the actual story. Poor Agatha, must be having fits.
In addition, even though they had splendid actors, only Daisy Ridley and Johnny Depp gave worthy performances. All of the rest were unconvincing, even Branagh.
Then the topper.. the last scene has a officer coming to get Poirot to ask him to go to Egypt to solve a murder on the Nile. What is the world??? Poirot is supposed to already be in Egypt when the first murder is committed.
Don't waste your time on Orient Express and based on the last scene I would pass on Death on the Nile too..
