Goofs

Hercule Poirot presents a mystery he had to solve that took place in a church. In his words to the public who came to see him in front of the Western Wall, he mentions that the church is The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, that he claims to be, in his words, "just above them". Well, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is indeed in the Old City of Jerusalem, but in another part of it: In the Christian Quarter. Above the place where he stands there's, in fact, a different holy place: the Dome of the Rock, but that's an Islamic shrine - not a church. See more »

Visually stunning, fairly decent film.
18 November 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I must admit as an Agatha Christie obsessed fan, my initial thoughts were of pure joy, it's been a while since Agatha Christie was on the big screen, appealing to new fans, and how magnificent that such a stellar cast was assembled. Then I thought, of all the titles, why go for such an obvious choice, which has been done several times.

Firstly, the film is undeniably beautiful, the costumes, sets, filming etc, the film will undoubtedly win an Oscar for the visuals. You can see big money was put into the look of the film.

My major irritation throughout, was his moustache, just absurdly over the top, when Depp and Pfeiffer should have been dominating scenes, all I could look at was that moustache. That apart Branagh was excellent, I never thought he'd carry it off, but he did.

I am intrigued as to whether this is a one off film, or if there'll be the odd appearance on the big screen. Only time will tell.

All in all, it was good, I wanted and hoped to absolutely love it, unfortunately I didn't, but no way is it as bad as some say, too much quality for that.

7/10 (hoped for a perfect 10!)
