Intrigue, murder, doubt, cinematography and a compelling cast come together in Kenneth Branagh's remake of Murder on the Orient Express. Branagh also stars with an original take on Belgian detective Hercule Poirot that manages not to mimic others who embodied on the fastidious, mustachioed flatfoot. If this film births a new series of Poirot films, it would not be the worst thing for cinematic mystery fans. 3 out of 5.
