The Josh Chop: Honestly I’m kind of getting sick of films being remade. In this case I didn’t mind it, because I never saw the other 2 versions. (the ’70s film or the TV show) The amount of talent oozing from this feature should have ensured a great film. Instead it was a good film mostly about how far pain can reach after someone has been murdered. The film felt like the movie Clue on a train but a lot less funny, yet still intriguing.
Murder on the Orient Express took its time exploring most of the other characters on the train. If you’ve read the book by Agatha Christie, you’ll know how the story ends, but of course I won’t ruin it for you here. While this film isn’t necessarily a long film, I felt like there was a lot going on and a lot of backstories explained and delved in to.
