Goofs

Poirot is a native French speaker, yet multiple times pronounces the word for "eggs" (les oeufs), as "leyz euhfs". In actual French, both the F and the S are silent; it is pronounced with just a vowel sound for the noun, like "leyz euh". See more »

Unfortunately Mediocre.
11 November 2017 | by (Cheltenham, England) – See all my reviews

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.
