Plodding and humourless
4 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

If you want to spoil an Agatha Christie story, transfer it to the screen exactly as written, with all the earnest endless talk, cardboard characters and everyone taking themselves absolutely seriously. Then if you want to make the film really hopeless, add a few extraneous anachronistic bits which contribute zero to the plot - the Mafia, the CIA, a Sam Spade-like private investigator in 1950s Soho whose father had been a policeman and mysteriously murdered, nope, this one will be neither detailed further nor resolved nor relevant to anything at all... Can you possibly go more wrong if you were doing it on purpose? And get the aforementioned 'Sam Spade' character to be essayed by one Max Irons, an actor probably not destined for glory, first because he's prone to puckering his face a lot and keeping mouth open when in doubt, and second because he doesn't seem to have a clue who his character is and how he landed in this particular mess. Avoid at all costs.
