Christie based the Armstrong story on the Lindbergh kidnapping and murder of 1932. In film, the fictitious Col. Armstrong's wife Sonia Goldenberg Armstrong and her family are Jewish. Lindbergh was very anti-Semitic and in the late '30s & into the '40s; he was a Nazi sympathizer who virulently opposed U.S. entry into World War II. See more »
Although most of the movie plays out in winter in the mountains, none of the characters take special precautions with regards to warm clothing, none seem to mind the cold, and none of them have visible breath as they should in such cold environment. See more »
When I first saw the cast line-up for this film, I thought it was going to be a masterpiece. Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp etc. The list goes on. But, it goes to show that a brilliant cast cannot make-up for mediocre.
I'm being careful to avoid spoilers here! The film starts with a relatively entertaining light-hearted action sequence which brings Poirot to the forefront of the story-line. But, it quickly goes downhill from here. We are then introduced to the rest of the cast and we quickly learn they all have their own stories.
After this though, the film becomes incredibly dull and slow. This remake is completely unnecessary and tedious
I have only given it 5 stars because I have significant respect for Agatha Christie's Poirot and it is only the base story-line which rescues it. Boring acting and predictable plot-twists.
Most definitely mediocre.
