You’re in for a treat My husband and I were thoroughly satisfied by this film. I had enjoyed the book, and enjoyed this film just as much. Excellent actors, good adaptation byJulian Fellows, and very fine production values. We watch any and all Agatha Christie films and TV shows, and found this one to be excellent especially as it has rarely been done, unlike some of her other books, which have had numerous productions.. You’re in for a treat.

I love pretty much all Agatha Christie’s work in any format I love pretty much all Agatha Christie’s work in any format.This production was bloody awful! Apart from Glen Close the rest of the cast were miscast and acted poorly.

Absolute Masterpiece Murder in the Orient Express and And Then There Were None are some of the most well loved, but this at least equals them. It’s also very, very strong in terms of execution as a film. Top-class acting, setting, music, etc. It has no flaws. The poster initially gave me pause but I’m very glad I made the purchase. This is the best Agatha Christie film I’ve seen, and I’ve seen a good deal of them.
