Goofs

Steam engines are powered by steam, generated by burning oil, or in this case coal. Steam is piped to the rail cars the heat them, and is expanded to run a generator and produce electricity. We see 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.

Difficult to Review
10 November 2017 | by jojo-acapulcoSee all my reviews

Difficult Kenneth Branagh makes, produces, and stars in good movies, and this version of Murder on the Orient Express features impressive sets, beautiful scenery, and lovely period clothes. An impressive case features Penélope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Derek Jacobi, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench, Willem Dafoe, and Kennth Branagh as Hercule Poirot. I think those who are not familiar with Agatha Christie, Poirot, or the story may very well like this movie.

I, on the other hand, was massively disappointed, especially by Branagh as a sort of English upper-class colonel with a stick-on cavalry moustache and by the needless addition of an introductory scene at the Wailing Wall. But I am prejudiced. I read the 1934 novel decades ago and again more recently. I liked the 1974 star-studded version with Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery, John Gielgud, Wendy Hiller, Anthony Perkins, Vanessa Redgrave, Richard Widmark, and Michael York—despite the fact that Albert Finney was a very poor version of Christie's Hercule Poirot.

In my opinion, the 2010 television version of the story starred David Suchet as the definitive Poirot, and the ending was far and away the best of all the versions with which I am familiar. So I think Christie fans may want to skip this edition of the classic.
