Branagh Back With Another Agatha Christie - Bomb!

Recommended Posts

Kenneth Branagh has something that draws him to Agatha Christie. I only saw Murder on the Orient Express and loathed all the fake cg effects. I deliberately did not see Death on the Nile. Now he is back with another movie "based" on a Christie story titled A Haunting in Venice. From the review in today's Guardian, it sounds pretty awful. 

"With each new Branagh/Poirot movie I have sat down for some guilty-pleasure fun, and he always brings to the part a basic level of sprightly energy. But each time I have been disappointed by the trudging inertia that sets in – and here by the false-ending, fake-reveal moments which the movie just breezes through, and also by the criminal waste of the supporting cast."
