If you don't like Johnny Depp then you'll love this movie! **Spoiler** Depp is murdered and quite viciously too. Besides Johnny Depp still getting roles in big movies, this movie could have been a little more faster paced. It was a good movie but a bit more action would have made it great.

WHO KILLED GILBERT GRAPE?
Love the Library - I paid no money out of pocket and I got my money's worth. This self-promotional piece for and of Kenneth Branagh, endlessly once again, just couldn't keep me awake. It dragged the family manhood through the mud . . .
So, who killed Johnny Depp? AAAARGH, Captain Sparrow, me matey. Don't know. Don't care. Didn't rewind to find out. I guess I'll never know. If they put a tachometer on Agatha's Headstone, I'll bet she is spinning in her dirt nap.

Very entertaining murder mystery, but an unrealistic (still surprising though) ending brings the rating down. Great performances by all the actors involved.

I've not read the book or seen the other film. So my children and I had the advantage of seeing this without anything to compare it to.
Yes you can pick some of the CGI points - , but that aside, everything else looked cool and majority of the time most of the acting was pretty solid.
Enjoyable murder mystery to sit down with the kids and have a bit of fun trying to guess who done it.

Watch the 1974 version. Much better.

"Underwhelming" Americanised version of what WAS a great Agatha Christie British murder mystery. PLEASE don't bother regarding the hint of a sequel "Murder on the Nile"!

We enjoyed watching this film with our granddaughter who wrote down clues in a notebook throughout the movie. We all took a guess at who we thought the murderer was once most of the characters were identified then took a second guess a little after the half way point. We all thought we were right at some point near the end with my husband coming in as the closest to discover the truth but alas all were wrong 🧐

Lots of people don't like what Branagh did with this, but, really, he did a decent job. I could make minor quibbles; there is some odd disconnect between having the story too violent on the one hand, and strangely sanitized on the other; but, overall, the main theme is there, and the acting is general solid. Some parts are a little too clearly CGI, but, these days, what can you do?

I don't carry the baggage of having read the book or seen many versions of the story on films, so I viewed this film from a fairly fresh point of view. With that in mind, I did find it enjoyable, though not great. The setting is gorgeous, and you do have a very large cast of well-known actors in it. Worthy of 2 hours of my time.
