On just about every scene Poirot's goatee has either a different shape or different hair patterns. With prominent gray hairs you easily spot the lack of continuity. This is very strange for a character that supposedly has OCD and such a prominent visual characteristic. See more »
You know, there is something about a tangle of strangers pressed together for days with nothing in common but the need to go from one place to another and never see each other again.

When I first saw the cast line-up for this film, I thought it was going to be a masterpiece. Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp etc. The list goes on. But, it goes to show that a brilliant cast cannot make-up for mediocre.
I'm being careful to avoid spoilers here! The film starts with a relatively entertaining light-hearted action sequence which brings Poirot to the forefront of the story-line. But, it quickly goes downhill from here. We are then introduced to the rest of the cast and we quickly learn they all have their own stories.
After this though, the film becomes incredibly dull and slow. This remake is completely unnecessary and tedious
I have only given it 5 stars because I have significant respect for Agatha Christie's Poirot and it is only the base story-line which rescues it. Boring acting and predictable plot-twists.
Most definitely mediocre.
