Murder on the Orient Express (2017) 3

This film is beautiful. The external shots of the trains and stations, the interior sets, costumes, you name it everything looks great. However, the film falls miserably flat. I never found myself caring for the kid that was kidnapped and murdered, or the people whose lives were forever changed by the events. Oddly enough I never feel anger or disgust at Ratchett the child murderer, in fact I never even get a pang of guilty pleasure when he’s murdered. The writing and/or editing seems way off with disconnected interviews and absurd jumps in logic in its final moments. If you haven’t seen the 1974 classic, go see that instead.
