Trivia

Dame Judi Dench and Johnny Depp appeared in movies about the infamous Jack the Ripper murders. Dench appeared as Sally in the Sherlock Holmes tale A Study in Terror (1965), while Depp appeared as Inspector Frederick Abberline in From Hell (2001). Both of these movies were fictionalized portrayals of the murders, and, like "Murder on the Orient Express", were written as whodunnits. See more »

Goofs

Steam engines are powered by steam, generated by burning oil, or in this case coal. Steam is piped to the rail cars to heat them, and is expanded to run a generator and produce electricity. It can be seen that the cars are warm and the lights are on, therefore indicating the steam engine is under fire and producing steam. However, all shots of the steam engine show it with snow stuck to the boiler indicating the boiler is at or below freezing. Furthermore, the engine appears to be knocked off the tracks, which would result in the crown sheet of the boiler becoming uncovered of water and causing the boiler to potentially explode.

Shock! Horror!!! Gasp!!!!!
7 May 2019 | by rahuldyllonSee all my reviews

Who knew?? Not every (any) film needs to be remade and remade and remade. Don't make a film if you have no ideas. That is how it works! This film was terrible. It was dull in script and visuals and also made the boring and vapid morals seem even more tired.

What I also suggest is that the eye for an eye stance is immoral and wrong. One crime does not deserve another. It is understood that Poirot brings the set of criminals to justice, but let's not assume that revenge is justified.
