The return of the ensemble whodunit - great fun to watch
What fun must have been had by all, making this modern actors movie with deliberate fifties and eighties elements. And what fun for us viewers. It's always good news a film takes 2 hours and feels shorter watching it.
Ana de Armas - now meeting Daniel Craig as add-kicking bond girl, has a lot on her shoulders, playing the vulnerable nurse around whom hateful family member circle as ever so many vultures and lights up the scenes. More action heroes on holiday here: Chris Evans shows he is a character actor, effectively playing the nasty guy. I enjoyed Toni Collette as the hysteric one and Jamie Lee Curtis as Mrs. cool and collected. And what about Don Johnson as a clueless dad...
I've read about all Christie's work and so many elements are elegantly used. The mansion, the racketeers, the twisted family histories, even BBC 80's style the title role lettering... it's all there to enjoy
I'm not totally convinced of Daniel Craig's southern US accent - but the more the movie develops, the more he becomes a credible mix of Columbo and Hercule Poirot. Great timeless music score too.
