Keeps your interest. If you like murder mystery, then this is the movie for you. The pace is a little slow, but definitely worth seeing.

Not David Suchet, but still a decent Poirot. The ending reason for letting go should not have been changed but a decent movie anyway.

Been awhile since I have seen a good mystery film, I'm glad I saw this one. Kudos to the cast for the portrayal of their characters and to the director for such an excellent job.

at first you would think the movie is slow unless you paying attention to minor details but there are good scenes here and there. The ending does make you think and makes you wander if you would agree eith the choice made if it was you. I believe this is the first time I've see Johnny Depp' s character actually die in a movie.

As a huge fan of Agatha Christie, I LOVED this movie. I fangirled at the end especially to the murder on the Nile reference. Love Branagh and thought he was excellent. I can see though that for those that have not read the book or are not familiar with Agatha Christie that it may be slow moving where all of the action is at the beginning

Dull. The excessive use of CGI dilutes any sense of place the movie is supposed to have. Skip this one.

Didn't like it. The movie was highly contrived. Should have guessed that would be the case. But overall, they made a pretty good version of the movie. However i didn't care for the overall plot and very contrived nature.

Slow moving, especially with the accompanying sound track, but it stated off with some cheeky humor and had a good array of characters / actors

Not a remake of the Sidney Lumet film. Definitely worth watching. It is very much an Agatha Christie adaptation, not a modern detective drama, so don't expect to figure it out from the clues laid out throughout the movie. Just sit back and enjoy the beautiful shouts and wonderful performances.

Branagh is more preoccupied with the challenges of keeping a movie set in a series of steel tubes visually interesting than he is in engaging its story.

Given the confined nature of the material as well as its period-specific aspects, this is a yarn that does not exactly invite radical reinterpretation. As such, its appeal is confined to the traditional niceties of being a clever tale well told, with colorful characters that are fun to watch being made to squirm by the inimitable Belgian detective.

Branagh, in his direction and especially in his performance, can’t help but overdo the cheeky artificiality, which keeps Murder feeling more like a well-designed exercise than a delectable thriller.
