Critic Reviews of "Murder on the Orient Express (2017)"
New YorkerNovember 13, 2017
Contriving somehow both to dawdle and to rush, "Murder on the Orient Express" is handsome, undemanding, and almost wholly bereft of purpose.
Newark Star-LedgerNovember 10, 2017
The picture simply goes on too long, and is far too in love with Branagh's performance.
CNN.comNovember 10, 2017
Still, Branagh clearly has fun with the eccentric nature of the Poirot character, whose gift of insight is a blessing when it comes to solving crimes but a curse in its effects on his daily existence.
New York Magazine/VultureNovember 10, 2017
To return to why Murder on the Orient Express was remade: Beats me. Maybe it's someone's idea of counterprogramming when every other film in the multiplex is for kids or yahoos. Maybe it's a tax shelter.
San Diego ReaderNovember 10, 2017
Whodunit? Who took the life of a famous murder mystery and left it dead on the screen? I accuse...director and star Kenneth Branagh.
RogerEbert.comNovember 10, 2017
There is too little levity and cleverness afoot, especially with a cast whose talent is barely tapped.
FILMINK (Australia)November 12, 2017
...a respectful romp through one of literature's most famous mysteries...
The Patriot LedgerNovember 12, 2017
Like Poirot, Branagh - the director - is immensely attentive to fact and detail, including drawing a robust performance out of Branagh - the actor - playing the quirky detective with a mix of cheeky humor, vim and vigor.
Alternate EndingNovember 11, 2017
Merely forgettable in long stretches between short patches of delight.
New England Movies WeeklyNovember 11, 2017
Even if you're familiar with the story (particularly the memorably lavish 1974 movie), you'll get caught up with what is one of the best murder mystery plots of all time.
SSG SyndicateNovember 11, 2017
There's no reason to see this tiresome, forlorn, forgettable whodunit, which derails almost from the get-go, long before the snow-bound, stranded strangers begin to suspect one another of murder.
The Film StageNovember 11, 2017
Kenneth Branagh shoots himself in the foot by cutting short the darkness that loomed in Christie's original vision.
