Consensus: Stylish production and an all-star ensemble keep this Murder on the Orient Express from running off the rails, even if it never quite builds up to its classic predecessor's illustrious head of steam.

April Wolfe
Village Voice

There's something quaint and comforting about this film and its brand of old-fashioned storytelling, where coincidences are extremely likely, everyone somehow knows a countess, and a man puts honor above all else.

While Branagh's revised version retains the basic elements, the mistakes he makes are numerous.

I left the theater with two items on my "To Do" list. First, book a trip for myself on the real Orient Express. Second, rewatch the 1974 movie.

'Murder' puts a new spin on an old favorite.

Branagh's retelling of the classic Agatha Christie tale is visually sumptuous yet otherwise inert, a series of what are essentially cameos by performers far too gifted to waste their time like this.

The picture simply goes on too long, and is far too in love with Branagh's performance.

All in all, this cast does make a team, but I think Pfeiffer steals her scenes with an enigmatic look.

It's not great, but it isn't terrible. The amazing cast isn't enough to make this an amazing movie!
