A film of a classic that won't become a classic

“My name is Hercule Poirot and I am probably the greatest detective in the world.”

Voila. We Belgians can also be proud of the Hercule Poirot phenomenon in addition to our world-famous beers and chocolate. Probably the best detective in the world. And yes, he comes from this tiny country in Europe. The fact he's actually a fictional person created by Agatha Christie, we forget for a moment. This vain, anything but modest, equiped with an enormous moustache, ingenious Belgian detective has already been played by a whole series of actors. But for me it's David Suchet who lived up the most to the image of Poirot.

What should you do when making a film of a world-famous book by Agatha Christie and you know in advance that a large part of the audience knows the story and the ending alread...

Stylish remake of the classic mystery film.

Kenneth Branagh directs and stars as the famous detective Hercule Poirot. It's a beautifully filmed and lavish looking movie. The costume design and scenery is a feast for the eyes.
To sum up the plot without spoilers, the script is similar to the 1974 adaptation with a few tweaks here and there. Its faithfulness makes it adequate but it's not as fresh as the original movie. I did appreciate the odd chase scene that occurred and some effective visual changes.
The ensemble cast is mostly good. Some people are shortchanged due to simply there being such a big cast in the first place. It's pleasant to see Johnny Depp play an actual human and Branagh is a good Poirot.
The script does play with the sexism and racial attitudes generally ignored by Agatha Christie adaptations of the 1930s...

3/4
