Murder on the Orient Express ★★½

A update of a story that did not need updating. This film did not update the story or setting of the classic Agatha Christie story. And there is absolutely no reason to remake the Sidney Lumet classic. The story was told adequately if a bit over the top at times. There was also some needless CGI within the avalanche to add production value I guess. However all it made me do was chuckle.

Don't waste your time with this one. Find a good Bluray of the 1974 version and enjoy. If you have never seen the original and don't know the story then this could be an adequate primer, but please go and watch the master, Sidney Lumet, weave the story properly.
