David Suchet: The Master PoirotRating: 2 likes, 0 dislikes
It was good to see David Suchet do another Poirot; he is such a fine actor. I am looking forward to the next three episode's, movie's, this year. Murder on the Orient Express will be the fourth show.
The cast was not up to Suchet's acting talents and the pacing was too sluggish. The cinematography was outstanding. I am not sure where it falls apart, direction, editing, trying to lengthen one hour into two. Hopefully, the next three show's will be better .
Hugh Fraser - especially, Philip Jackson and Pauline Moran were great foils for Suchet to work off. They lent a break in the seriousness of it all. It is unfortunate they are not associated with this project any longer.
