Good Films, But Not Great from 2017
- Murder on the Orient Express
Based on Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name, Murder on the Orient Express is a story about the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. (Not Hercules, he does not slay the dragons.) Attempting to have a holiday, murder and mystery seem to follow Poirot wherever he goes. While aboard the Orient Express, a grisly stabbing occurs and Poirot is forced to cut his holiday short to solve the crime that everyone aboard appears to have a connection to, including the sleuth himself.
A massive Poirot fan my whole life, I was ecstatic at the prospect of a new, high budget adaptation of Christie’s most famous detective. It was enjoyable, though imperfect. You can read my full review here.
