I found this very disappointing. I have liked Kenneth Branagh in many things, but he was terrible as Poirot. He played Poirot like a caricature, and it was abysmal to watch. I think that David Suchet, who played Poirot in the long-running tv series, was absolutely perfect as Poirot and played him with great sincerity, humanity and charisma. Branagh just made Poirot seem absurd. The train was beautiful and the costumes were lovely. The cast, with Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench, and Penelope Cruz, was amazing, but this was strictly The Kenneth Branagh Show and the other actors were all left with little to do. I hated many of the changes, such as the ridiculous amount of time spent outside the train in the snow, Mrs. Hubbard being stabbed, Poirot being shot, all of these were unnecessary and nonsensical changes. I highly recommend the 1974 Albert Finney version over this mess. I also highly recommend the book.
