Trivia

This movie, and the novel on which it was based, parallels in part the kidnapping and murder of the son of aviator and anti-Semitic Nazi sympathizer Charles Lindbergh. As in the actual case, the kidnapper kills the child. However, no sinister mastermind or boss plotted the Lindbergh kidnapping. German-born Bruno Richard Hauptmann, a carpenter, kidnapped and murdered twenty-month-old Charles Lindbergh, Jr. After the "trial of the century" and many appeals, the State of New Jersey executed Hauptmann by electrocution.

Goofs

Between Vinkovci (last stop before the murder) and Brod (today Slavonski Brod, the final stop in the movie) there is roughly 70km of a totally flat railroad. Nowhere near the alpine/mountain/snowy setting that it is depicted in the movie. See more »

Unfortunately Mediocre.
11 November 2017 | by youngluke-13189See all my reviews

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.
