Death on The Nile (2022) Movie Review

“Death on the Nile” is a mystery-thriller film directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also stars as the lead character, detective Hercule Poirot. The movie is based on the 1937 novel of the same name by Agatha Christie and is a sequel to the 2017 movie “Murder on the Orient Express.”

The film features an all-star cast that includes Branagh, Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey, Sophie Okonedo, Jennifer Saunders, and Letitia Wright. The story follows Poirot as he investigates a murder during a luxurious Nile river cruise.

The story follows detective Hercule Poirot (Branagh) as he investigates the murder of a young heiress, Linnet Ridgeway Doyle, while on a honeymoon cruise down the Nile River. As Poirot tries to solve the case, he encounters a variety of suspects, each with their own motive for committing the crime. As with Christie’s other works, the plot features twists and turns that keep audiences guessing until the very end.

The film has generated excitement among fans of Christie’s work and fans of the 1978 movie adaptation of “Death on the Nile,” which starred Peter Ustinov as Poirot.

The critical reception of the movie has been mixed. I will praise the film for its lavish production design, stunning cinematography, and strong performances from the cast. However, the film is not as enjoyable as it should be for its slow pacing and lack of suspense, with some feeling that it doesn’t live up to the suspenseful nature of Christie’s novel.

Overall, if you’re a fan of the Agatha Christie mysteries or the previous adaptations of her works, you may find “Death on the Nile” to be an enjoyable film. However, if you’re looking for a high-stakes thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, the movie may not meet your expectations.
