Murder on the Orient Express Rated 12A

Murder on the Orient Express

Dir. Kenneth Branagh. USA, 2017. 1h 54m. Starring Kenneth Branagh, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Leslie Odom Jr., Olivia Colman, Derek Jacobi.

One dead body, thirteen passengers, and everyone is a suspect. Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic whodunnit novel is teeming with mystery and highly entertaining performances from an all-star cast.

‘It's classic Branagh: sweeping landscapes, thundering score, capital-A Acting, and, excitingly - at least for format nerds like me - it's shot on 65mm film.’ ★★★★ Simian Hans, The Guardian

‘Where Murder On The Orient Express succeeds is in Branagh's fast pacing and the suspense he maintains throughout; each suspect is given screen time, and each has a plausible reason for murder, but none of them are lingered on for too long.’ ★★★★ Rebecca Lewis, Metro
