    A beautiful film, however very obvious they aren't on location much if at all I found the acting of Gal Gadot kind of...actually I have nothing good to say so will stick to the old adage.

    Despite being a big fan of Suchet I do really think that Kenneth Branagh made it his own and was a great Poirot. I enjoyed his chemistry with the Sophie Okenodo (hope I spelled that correctly)'s character.

    Letitia Wright wowed me as she does in everything. The characters needed more depth but the actors generally did a good job with what they had. All in all a good watch on a relaxing Sunday afternoon but no Suchet.

    An OK movie.
    In my defence, I don't know the story, so had no idea what to expect. It's a decent film, the earlier Murder on The Orient was much better, this was very stylish, but the story, maybe just didn't quite work so well. Wonder woman Gal Gadot definitely looked incredible, but I'm not sure she was the right casting, I wasnt sure if I liked or loathed that character. It looked nice, wonderful locations, and the club scenes looked great. My main issue, was the ending, aside from being underwhelming, I just didn't really understand it, was it different in the book? That moustache though, that was cool.
