Comment
The detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) is in Egypt for a holiday, but gets drawn into investigating the murder of a socialite (Gal Gadot) on a boat on the river Nile. This is Kenneth Branagh's re-imagining of the Agatha Christie novel. He has changed the characters and added racial and lesbian overtones that distract from the plot and characters to meet political correctness rather than building on the original plot and any historical accuracy. The CGI of Egypt is uninspiring and some of the cinematography is distracting. Ultimately this is disappointing as overall the film lacks passion. Although now somewhat dates, the 1978 version is closer to the book and has more character and passion.
