Goofs

Late in the movie when Dr. Arbuthnot confronts Poirot with a handgun he employs a two handed grip on the gun colloquially know as tea cup or cup and saucer method. This method of handgun shooting was not taught until WW 2. A WW 1 military trained shooter like Dr. Arbuthnot would have been taught to shoot a handgun with a one handed grip exclusively. See more »

Quotes

Edward Ratchett: So, you say no to my dirty mind.
Hercule Poirot: I say no to you, Mr. Ratchett.
Edward Ratchett: Business with the gun, right? Is that what it was?
Hercule Poirot: It is far more personal than that. I do not like your face.

Everyone Has Egg On Their Faces
15 September 2019 | by romerocaisynSee all my reviews

The director for attempting yet another unwanted remake and for hiring the masculine-haired Star Wars dreck so-called actress. The actors and actresses for showing they have no other offers and for showing up on this set. The tale of a trip that begins in Palestine and grinds to a halt is a metaphor for the film itself.
