MOVIE REVIEW: Murder on the Orient Express -- "Such Fun"

We got a chance to see "Murder On the Orient Express". Such fun! I have seen the previous two movies of this name and I have read the book. This I thought was the most beautifully filmed. The mountains were gorgeous and the sunsets were taken full advantage of. I really enjoyed the different angles in which the movie was filmed.

The acting, what can I say? Kenneth Branagh both starred in it as Hercule Poirot and was the director. The first part he cast was Judi Dench as Princess Dragomiroff. He wanted her for the part so he could easily get other top name actors interested. Daisy Ridley (of Star Wars fame), Leslie Odom Jr., Tom Bateman, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Penelope Cruz, Josh Gad, Johnny Depp, Derek Jacobi, Sergei Polunin, Lucy Boynton, Michelle Pfeiffer, Olivia Coleman and Willem Dafoe. I think I named all of the suspects.

The movie keeps the mind working and the eyes full. The famed detective, Hercule Poirot is taking the Orient Express home for a much-needed rest. Someone on board is murdered and he, of course, is called upon to help find the killer. The train is stopped by an avalanche so no one can get off or on. A true whodunnit. Good movie.

So go. Have fun. Eat popcorn.
