Movie Reviews

Opulent, Elegant and lavish production.

One of the most famous of Dame Agatha Christie's novels. This is a glorious, beautifully directed, star studded production. I will be honest and say it took me a long time to appreciate just how good a film this actually is.

The format and layout of the film works tremendously well, the dark and twisted kidnap and killing story at the beginning sets the tone well, it hits hard, and makes the end of the film all the more engaging and believable.

The film looks sensational, it is a beautiful production (especially in HD) the scenery throughout is lavish, a true feast for the eyes. From the bright sunny beginning, to the dark, bleak and snowy scene of the murder. The film seems to get intentionally darker as it progresses. The costumes are glorious, Jacqueline Bisset especially gets to wear some wonderful outfits.

Albert Finney is good in the part, he certainly looks the part, when I read the book he is exactly how I visualise him. He is wonderfully theatrical, and as Ustinov definitely suits the flavour of Death on the Nile, so does Finney here.

The characterisations aside from Poirot are expertly brought to life, some glorious performances, Lauren Bacall and Wendy Hillier are sensational in their roles, how well the cast bring to life the class system of 1930, it really was a different world. Sir John Gielgud is tremendous as stiff upper lipped Beddoes, and plaudits also to Richard Widmark who makes Mr Ratchett as vile as possible.

9/10 you can almost smell the gourmet cooking and hear the clink of Champagne flutes. A glorious film. Kenneth Branagh's new adaptation has a lot to live up to.

Could have been much better...

I am a little disappointed by some points of the movie. The qay of filming is very basical, but the actors' play is quite good. It's a shame that the image aspect and coloration is not detective-movie-like. The computer-drawed landscapes are useless and do not contribute to make me love that film. The scenarisation at the end of the film is disappointing. I really think it could have been better as an adaptation of the novel. Though the movie is quite good. I have not read the original novel yet, but I except something better.

Beatiful ans spetacular

This movie is a really good interpretation of Agatha Christie's novel. The story is really well-told and the actors are amazing at playing their role. The 3D effects for the landscapes are incredible, this movie is a pure beauty. Perhaps the links between the characters might be a little bit complicated to understand because the story goes quite fast but overall this movie is really good.
