Notes: 
Storyline Heading
From the novel by Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express tells of thirteen stranded strangers & one man's race to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Drama Mystery - This adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie mystery novel is very much old fashioned and talky, aimed at older viewers. While there is a large ensemble cast full of recognizable faces, director/star Kenneth Branagh dominates while the rest of the cast have supporting roles of various sizes. Language and adult themes make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The film isn't too long to wear out its welcome and there's something impressive about being surrounded by such impeccable detail and so many familiar faces. Although the film will work considerably better for newcomers to the story, there's enough here to appeal to veterans.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...sumptuous yet ultimately stuffy and overstuffed big-screen return visit to Agatha Christie's most durable novel. I wish I could say that the storyline at least picks up steam, but it never quite does especially since it devolves into a series of private interrogations by the imperious Poirot in a café car.

USA Today Full Review
Average What starts out as a breezy Indiana Jones-style adventure screeches to a halt when someone's stabbed to death on the title train, and most of the storytelling momentum is also killed in a mystery that's surprisingly philosophical.

NY Post Full Review
Poor "Murder on the Orient Express” has been . . . murdered! Which of you could have killed this cold and limp new adaptation... ...Green's adaptation, however, is thin and undistinguished. No character feels all that different from the next. ...a wholly misguided, dunderheaded adaptation of a beloved British classic...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 71 moviegoers:
The professional critic reviews vary from "Good" to "Poor," and moviegoer reviews also vary quite a bit but most enjoyed it.
TEENS: Two males loved it, one enjoyed it very much and the remaining two rated it "average" (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Four of the ladies loved it, but the remaining two only rated it "average."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Both the males and females either loved it or enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS: Half the males loved it, with another 12% rating it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, nearly 40% felt it was only an "average" movie, which isn't a bad review, but it is a bit disappointing, especially considering the star power in this film. Just over 40% of the ladies loved it, with another 30% indicating that they enjoyed it very much. About 25% rated it "average," which is a bit high, but not bad. A few rated it "below average."
