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.

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 fan of both the book and the original 1974 film, i was apprehensive of this new adaption. Kenneth Branagh does and interesting job of keeping the movie some what different and interesting, but i was hoping for a more faithful adaption to the novel. it was a bit annoying to see a few cgi shots and a stupid action sequence in a agetha christie film. still a decent movie on its own, but i doubt todays younger movie audience will find this exciting or intresting

So the movie was pretty good until the ending. I reeled me in and when it started to feel like it was dragging it picked up. The ending, however, left me disappointed to the point that I won’t see it again.

Some differences than the book. If I didn’t read the book I probably would’ve liked it more. Had comical pieces that didn’t feel like it fit to me.

If you can’t get a nap anywhere else, $5 to take one during this movie was worth the cost. Extremely broken acting and anticlimaticism.

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.

The current cast is cursed with the director’s lust for gravitas. Searching for emotional truth in Agatha Christie, Mr. Branagh succeeds only in killing her playfulness.

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.
