Our take

All aboard, as the great Sidney Lumet re-routes briefly into the murder mystery genre. This sumptuous adaptation of Agatha Christie’s detective novel stars Albert Finney as the indomitable Hercule Poirot, and an ensemble cast to die for—Lauren Bacall, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins & Ingrid Bergman!
