Poster for Death on the Nile (2022)

Kenneth Branagh helms this adaptation of the steamboat-set Agatha Christie whodunit, a follow-up to his 2017 film Murder on the Orient Express, with an all-star cast including himself, Armie Hammer, Gal Gadot, Annette Bening, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and Russell Brand. More

A young heiress on her honeymoon aboard a river steamer has been murdered - and everyone on board is now a suspect. For Detective Hercule Poirot (Branagh), what started as an Egyptian holiday adventure abruptly descends into a frantic search for a murderer.

An aggressively misguided, strangely dour affair that starts off bad and only gets worse.

Kenneth Branagh makes heavy weather of Christie caper.

Takes a criminally long time getting to the crime

A glossy, undemanding confection that doesn’t make waves, but shouldn’t be given a wide berth either.

Hollywood Reporter

Satisfying enough, though more so as glossy, old-school entertainment than diabolically clever mystery.

Works because of how effortlessly — and sometimes even charmingly — it bridges the gap between old-fashioned entertainment and modern appetites.

Empire Magazine

Empire Magazine

An improvement on Murder On The Orient Express, with the increased focus on Branagh’s Poirot (even with its strange moustache obsession) welcome enough to distract from the problems with some of its ensemble and its too-obvious reliance on VFX.

Vanity Fair

An intermittently entertaining but otherwise tiresomely lugubrious trip down crocodile-filled waters.

Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly

A sumptuous dinner-theater redux studded with stray bits of caricature, camp, and many CG pyramids.

Wall Street Journal

Has pizazz and period style in the same way today’s big-brand toothpastes have flavor -- artificial ingredients give them a taste that’s discernible, but too generic to name.

Branagh seems to be having a grand old time, so we might as well, too.
