Poirot's monologue "I have always been so sure, too sure. But now I am very humble and I say like a little child, I do not know." is a directly taken from the end of Poirot's confession in the final novel of the Poirot series, "Curtain". See more »
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 »
I am tired. I have earned myself a little holiday. I want to look at paintings and have too much time on my hands.

As director and leading actor, Branagh has turned this movie into one of the most excessive, narcissistic films ever made. With so many great actors and actresses, one is left wondering why they would waste their time to be in this production. The director gives none of them a chance to shine. Branagh's mustache is the star of the show and, unfortunately, the only part of the movie I'm likely to remember. With so much star power, I made the mistake of not reading reviews first. If I had, I probably would have avoided this terrible ego trip. Most viewers would do well to skip this one.
