Kept me guessing throughout!
4 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I went to see Murder on the Orient Express last night and this is my review. I am rating it 7/10

A quick overview of the film is that someone is murdered on the Orient and the worlds best detective played brilliantly by Kenneth Branagh must solve this case with caution and intelligence.

The film starts smoothly with some laughs produced by Kenneth. We meet every character before the train journey and that's when the guessing begins.

I really enjoy a film that keeps you guessing and gives you a few unexpected twists. The orient certainly delivers that.

Pros: Few well timed laughs, Kenneth Branagh is fantastic, Guessing Twists, Being focused on what is going on Lovely scenery, Great cast and an intense story.

Cons: To be honest, with the type of film it is and plot. There isn't anything bad I can say about it because it delivered Agatha Christie's story very well.

An entertaining watch for those who like a mystery film with a strong cast and to be engaged throughout but getting you to guess at most stages of the film.

I guessed loads but was wrong!

Thank you and hope you enjoy this review
