The cast is dazzling and Kenneth Branagh
gives each of them their moment to shine, as they are interrogated one-by-one. The luscious cinematography by Haris Zambarloukos makes even the most confined spaces seem full of portent and possibility, and the deft adaptation by Michael Green keeps the film sprinting swiftly from one memorable sequence to another. Murder on the Orient Express
speeds along just like, well, the Orient Express
, giving us plenty of time to take in the sites while moving steadily and suspensefully towards its final, shocking destination.
