2.0 out of 5 stars
Murdered by the Cast, Feb 15 2011
Albert Finney's Poirot does not hold a candle to David Souchet's excellent Poirot as seen recently in the new 2010 version of 'Murder on the Orient Express' recently broadcasted in N. America on PBS' "Mystery Theatre". The cast are not much better. Sean Connery seems bored with it all. The dark foreboding end to the 2010 version, with Poirot in a terrible moral quandry, is much more in keeping with the dilemna created when those who have been terribly wronged take justice into their own hands. It is a good interpretation and much better than the typical 'American' ending presented in this version.
