😐 I have not seen the original Murder on the Orient Express from 1974 although I do enjoy Agatha Christie's novels and I absolutely loved Death on the Nile (that is why I'm begging Kenneth Branagh not to do a remake - you can have all the A-list stars in the world but you can never top a classic).
About this film, the acting is superb with great A-listers (I particularly liked Kenneth Branagh as Hercules Poirot), but the plot felt a bit rushed in my opinion. Like I said, I did not see the original, but I felt that it took more time with less important matters in the beginning and the end, and then it just rushed through the main topic.
I still enjoyed the film though.
