Half an hour of watching this creation I was enough to understand — whoever has read the book, watch it not worth it.

Racial tolerance — where without her? Instead of an English Colonel — the doctor is African-American. Great idea to accused of racism. The elderly Swede, missionary, shy, soft, about all-conscious, has become an attractive latina (Penelope Cruz), who is ready with his fists to defend the word of God and everyone expresses their religious claims. like to personally wish everyone here to fall in hell. Hungarian aristocrat Andrei (in the book — with impeccable manners) fights in melee waving his feet, scattering random counter. And a great actress, "Mrs. Hubbard" chose a movie completely opposite role of "the merry widow".

Propaganda of racial equality, Poirot wandering around the roof listed the trains, stupid and absolutely not relevant for the British, so for the Belgian Poirot, humor, cancer the Butler, the Austrian Professor — this is an incomplete list of innovations Director. Fortunately though the ending saved in contrast the eponymous series "Poirot Agatha Christie" (where Poirot angrily scolded the offender, which is not was book). The only advantage at than  the"classic" Poirot.

Never understood, why for the adaptation of work shred, alter, move, shove the thing in the book never was? If you are not so much like in the original, may not should have taken for setting? I thought in this case, certainly not worth it.

Adaptation of the immortal works of Agatha Christie in a compartment with so many famous actors not could get no proper attention of the viewer. Kenneth Branagh who directed the new version of the film in the lead role with a favorite gave us a new, very interesting version of Hercule Poirot.

Probably the first thing really worth noting so that's the beauty of the film. The scenery shown on the screen fascinate and catch the viewer's attention, whether it hot Egypt or the snowy Yugoslavia. Observe the film on the backdrop of such beautiful scenery is really nice.

Furthermore, a "chamber" atmosphere of the narrative, most of which, as not surprisingly, takes place in the train is lifted on the highest level. Everything looks incredibly beautiful and atmospheric.

Not being familiar with the source, I might say that the film is interesting, though, and a little fantastic. The Director tried to display in the story Comedy drama the detective the departing from the intention to remove "the classic English detective". But most striking thing is that everything I saw looked quite organically and even amazing mustache the detective seemed funny in the trailer, in the review process agreed with this new way.

Much here depended on the acting, it should give tribute to Kenneth Branagh, Michelle Pfeiffer and certainly johnny Depp, for which the Express was a real return. Its hero, con charming villain and the victim touches with the first appearance on screen.

The picture left is quite dynamic; the first twenty minutes, more like on a theatrical production (blame too hammy with emotion Monsieur Beech) followed the plot and the fact-finding, surprise, hypotheses refute each other and a shocking denouement which is one side is logical, and other well, too incredible.

In any case, the "Orient Express" is a good picture for a wonderful evening. And he has not become a sensation, the Director definitely deserves applause for the courage. The film is balancing between genres are not can get a row with "great detective stories", but it definitely deserves the audience's attention.

The classic detective there are many respectable guises, but one of them has a special unquestionable status. Name him — Agatha Christie. The most famous writer of Britain came to writing his first novel is a puzzle in a rather Mature age. Having decided to put in the story of an eccentric Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, Christie gave him at the mercy of a mysterious incident in Stiles, which is required for attention to the most trifling details and minor reservations in otherwise the crime would never were overtaken by a righteous punishment. Very flattering critical reviews, and also the favor of the audience inspired Agatha Christie to further work, which it immediately set to perform. Thanks to the boundless enthusiasm of the writer of the pen or typewriter also came as much as 60 detective novels, not counting other primary creative works. Think of a number notable detectives, including miss Marple and the Colonel's Flight, the Christie's not forget your pet Poirot, who continued to delight the audience with his crown behavior and crystal-clear mind, able to unravel even the most lost cause. In 1934, the unforgettable Poirot reappeared on the pages of a novel entitled "the Orient Express", and thus won a well deserved title detective first among equals. The public took an intriguing conversational adventure in the part of the elegant flight Istanbul-Britain with a fair share of enthusiasm, in as some journalists ganged up on Christie's, considering it the novel is written too hastily and superficially. However, neither the one caustic causticity not able to compete with the cultural heritage of the "Eastern Express" passed the test of time and gave us classics of the detective genre, in no way can be compared with far fewer works, even from the most recognized masters of literature.

The most famous adaptation of the "Orient Express" for considered to be the film Director Sidney Lumet, released in 1974. Of course, the master of the big screen, it was difficult to build something amazing on field where already have shown in all its glory Agatha Christie, however, Lumet decided to compensate long ago disclosed by the readers of the story of revelation a truly brilliant cast, designed to keep the attention of viewers from beginning to the very end. Even the most insignificant roles Lumet gave celebrities, while Hercule Poirot sported at the camera form of albert Finney, one of the most deserving artists of his generation. Giving the picture a slight tinge of theatricality deployed in gorgeous scenery, the Director manages to give the author of the novel-the original tribute of respect, after which few people from colleagues Lumet would have agreed to repeat its feat. The audience had to wait decades to "Orient Express" went back to platform and went to way. To start it detective outline leaked on television and then it was the turn of Kenneth Branagh again to take the reins of a film set in your hands and again to plunge into the world of Agatha Christie, which most of us knows, however, there is nothing wrong to find him again.

So, the plot of the film, called "Murder in Orient Express", takes place in 1934 and has its origins in Istanbul just is famed detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh himself). Having a place in the elite train in France, the detective prepared to relax and to get my thoughts in order before an important investigation, but like not him I wanted to leave the bustle behind, it again catches forces come in the fastest brain readiness. Somewhere in the night the road becomes known that one of the passengers on the train are killed, and not by natural causes. And as nearby and Hercule Poirot, you mean fate itself requires his intervention and without delay. In evaluating the possible intruders, the detective should be in my head full picture of what is happening, but this time he as easy as before. Murder in Orient Express was the most confusing and difficult for the seasoned detective, about what it will hint us at the time, but with all the hindering circumstances, Poirot will prove their professional suitability, because it is better and with no argue.

To take up another adaptation of the "Orient Express" Kenneth Bran was not less difficult than his Hercule Puaro to investigate the murder. The Director always feels perfectly at the staging of the plays of William Shakespeare and other iconic playwrights, however, the cult tape Sidney Lumet has set such a high artistic standard that it was almost impossible to jump. And as sad to say, Bran is not possible, although it is seen it all trap long before as sat in the Director's chair this variation of the classic novel. The however, the most famous admirer of Shakespeare on both sides of the ocean turned out to represent on our display is working, resourceful and sometimes even laughing picture, able to instill respect for the work of Agatha Christie as an ignorant youth, and to lovers of completely different genres. Following in the footsteps of Sidney Lumet, Kenneth Branagh saturated his film with plenty of remarkable personalities of contemporary film, including johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and many others. Thus, as in case painting, 1974, "Murder in Orient Express" 2017 not gives a bored audience that it occurs in the frame celebrities, each of which gets let modest, but its a special moment.

As for the detective element of the film, it as expected, not much intrigue. And the trouble is not that the plot of Agatha Christie not is a mystery, but in the material supply Director, who managed to work also on the script. Bran deliberately changed part of the events, stated Christie to bring in the story the element of surprise, but if the writer of each component of the narrative had the highest value for the final sentence, that in the tape most of the elements lead to the meaning collapses. Of course, not everyone in the audience will notice such logical voids, however, when re-review, you risk to consider in all the nuances of the little things, crashing into memory annoying perception. And the less despite the mistakes of the Brane, "Murder in Orient Express" your audience will delight rather than disappoint. The creators have been able to recreate on the screen a fascinating visual range, warming winter frosts dimensional SIPS of warm tea or something stronger. Also not forget the star the cast that appeared in the credits not just like that. Bran is not miss the opportunity to use all the charisma of their players and send it in the service of his picture.

Himself detective Poirot in execution same Branagh looks a little unhappy, entangled in feelings and aspirations, the most different from the classic version of Agatha Christie. But this tribute needed a fresh look, thrown by the movie Director of  the"Orient Express" as he wanted it.
