The train car corridors in this movie are "slightly wider" than the real Orient Express ones to accommodate cast and crew. See more »
Even though attractive SNCF 241.P 65 was used, the Class 241 was built from 1948 to 1952, but the movie takes place in 1934. In addition while the train goes through Turkey and Yugoslavia the locomotive never changes. This would be impossible due to regulations at the time. During the trip of the Orient Express the locomotive would have been changed on every border crossing. See more »
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.
