Dog’s Movie House: “Death On The Nile” Agatha Christie Would Be Proud!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the latest adaptation of a classic Agath Christie whodunnit! This is called “Death On The Nile” and stars Kenneth Branagh as legendary sleuth Hercule Poirot. This is a direct sequel to 2017’s “Murder On The Orient Express” which also starred Branagh. He also steps behind the camera again as director. I thought “Orient Express” was a passable film that suffered a bit from Branagh’s over-the-top performance as Poirot, but I’m pleased to say that “Death On The Nile” features a more nuanced performance from Branagh that gives Poirot some much-needed emotional resonance. The mystery is pretty good too.
