Death on the Nile Review: Death on the Nile is the successor to Murder on the Orient Express, initially released in 2017. The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also stars in one of his most successful films as Hercule Poirot. This film has been released with much hype as it’s yet to be determined if there will be a sequel after this.
If enough money and advertising are created for this film, it will likely be a huge success. The first film, Murder on the Orient Express, was a huge success, and everyone wondered about a sequel. Richard Widmark, who played Mr. Ratchett in the first film, is not returning to this film and has been replaced with Kenneth Branagh as he’s hopping on playing Poirot again.

Death on the Nile Review
Death on the Nile Review: This film received decently good reviews, with people saying it was better than the other one and much more exciting. The film was called an anti-climax of the first one, even though it was outstanding. People enjoyed the spectacle and cast of actors more in this film and thought it was more entertaining than the last one.
However, the film did have some negative reviews, with people saying that it was a boring film and insufficient compared to the first one. They also said that they didn’t enjoy the cast of actors and were disappointing. In addition, the film was too long for them and bored them after a while. If a couple of minutes were cut off of each part of the film, the movie would be much better than it is now.
Some people say that this film will be wrong, while others say it will be good. I think it will be better than the last film because both the cast and the director are excellent. The director Kenneth Branagh is one of the best directors in Hollywood right now; he directed such films as Cinderella, Thor, and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, critically acclaimed and financial success. In addition to that, the cast consists of some of Hollywood’s best actors.
“*spoilers ahead* Loved it! It seemed like the writers were more creative with this film. They used more creative shots and angles, and the CGI was also better. There was even a scene of Hercule Poirot with his mustache that looked good.”
“Kenneth Branagh is back and still great! The first one was very formulaic. A lot of people were expecting something big out of this one, but I think it’s fine if the writers keep it simple instead of trying to do something huge again.”
“My first ever movie review; if your not a fan of the old school detective novels by Agatha Christie, then you won’t find a lot to entertain you. The story’s plot is incredibly predictable; even still, I found myself enjoying it. The property is Murder on the Orient express meets Death on the Nile. It’s got a lot of pros, one of them being I’m obsessed with Agatha Christie novels.
