Trivia

Jacqueline Bisset, who starred in Murder on the Orient Express (1974), told Sir Kenneth Branagh how excruciating it was to shoot the extended scene in which the murder was revealed. To avoid this feeling amongst the actors and actresses in his version, Branagh shot his side as Poirot first, cut wherever he could when shooting the actors and actresses up close, and did everything to make sure the whole cast spent as little time as possible on-set during the lengthy scene.

Branagh's Ego Trip
11 March 2018 | by VodmoskvaSee all my reviews

As director and leading actor, Branagh has turned this movie into one of the most excessive, narcissistic films ever made. With so many great actors and actresses, one is left wondering why they would waste their time to be in this production. The director gives none of them a chance to shine. Branagh's mustache is the star of the show and, unfortunately, the only part of the movie I'm likely to remember. With so much star power, I made the mistake of not reading reviews first. If I had, I probably would have avoided this terrible ego trip. Most viewers would do well to skip this one.
