Express FM review: Murder on the Orient Express


Portsmouth's number one independent cinema, No. 6 Cinema, will be presenting Murder on the Orient Express on Thursday 21st December. 

While you wait for that, delve into Jon Brown's review of Kenneth Branagh-directed and -starring mystery drama film Murder on the Orient Express. Jon is the resident movie critic of Portsmouth’s very own radio station, Express FM.

Branagh takes on the task of breathing new life both into Agatha Christie's timeless classic crime novel, and the world-famous detective Hercules Poirot for this big-screen, big budget re-imagining.

Does Branagh shine as the detail-devoted detective? Find out Jon’s verdict below.

The all-star cast features Branagh, plus Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Tom Bateman, Marwan Kenzari, and Olivia Coleman.
