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.

If you're not into mystery, DO NOT WATCH! Overall, good movie!

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

we love Johnny Depp, that's the only reason we went to see the movie, but the movie was somewhat boring....

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.

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.
