x"Murder on the Orient Express"..

This is the fifth media exploitation of the famed novel Murder on the Orient Express is a detective novel by Agatha Christie featuring the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Unfortunately, Brannaugh's version of this classic, as opposed to the Sidnet Lumet all-star cast version, is too fast, too furious and this rush to the solution causes much character development ot be sacrificed.,

In 1930s Europe, legendary detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) probes a murder that occurs aboard the luxury train known as the Simplon-Orient Express from Istanbul to Calais or more casually referred to as the Orient Express. The, Poirot and more than a dozen other passengers wind up stranded when the train gets stuck in a snowdrift and one passenger end up with a knife inhis chest. As the thirteen passengers grow paranoid that the killer will strike again,But, as the mentally acute Poirot investigates the murder and the backgrounds of the passengers, he realizes there's more to the case than meets the eye.
