Murder on the Orient Express (2017)
This review is possibly a little unfair, as I actually managed to fall asleep watching Murder On The Orient Express. In a busy cinema, early evening on a Sunday. I’ve only ever managed to do this a couple of times previously – once, while watching a midnight screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (I’m an old man, it was way past my bedtime). Another occasion was during the last Alvin and the Chipmunks movie while watching with my daughter (and I quite rightly got a dig in the ribs from her when she caught me out).
I made it through the setup and the murder itself. I also made it through some of the questioning of the many suspects too. But I think that’s where my body gave up. I don’t think I missed much though, and I was awake again in time for the ridiculous reveal and the explanation as to why whodunit actually dunit, but overall this was just a pretty big disappointment for me.
