Chief Chick Comments

Extraordinaire mes amis! Marvelous new adaptation of Agatha Christie's Murder On the Orient Express! Kenneth Branagh stars, directs and wrote the lyrics to the final song, Never Forget, sung by Michelle Pfeiffer. I dared to expect much from this film, and it delivered. A cast of big stars, new stars and some unknowns leave you wanting more. And again, you want to travel on The Orient Express yourself. Johnny Depp plays the evil Ratchett who is found murdered in his compartment after the train is derailed by an avalanche while traveling through the Alps. Hercule Poirot is pressed to solve the murder through the insistence of a Director of The Orient Express and to solve it before they are rescued and detained in a small town somewhere in the Alps. Michelle Pfeiffer in a role played by Lauren Bacall in an earlier version is wonderful as are Judi Dench and Josh Gad. However, Kenneth Branagh delivers a surprising performance as Hercule Poirot himself with more energy and passion as well as a new look to his famous mustache! I marked "eye candy" on the review because, really, Branagh is pretty darn attractive even as the fussbudget Hercule Poirot! Also, watch for the wonderful perspectives shown especially on the train as we see the action through the glass from the outside and sometimes from above. Michael Green, the screenwriter, throws in a few changes from the original book and movies, but they fit right in and enhance the story. Really fabulous. I have read the book more than once and seen every prominent movie version in English and, as much as I have loved them all, this is perhaps the best!
