"While traveling on the luxurious Orient Express, Hercule Poirot (David Suchet, Decline and Fall) meets Samuel Ratchett (Toby Jones, Detectorists), an unsavory businessman who fears for his life. Not caring for the man or his money, Poirot declines his demand for professional protection. But when Ratchett is stabbed to death, the detective is determined to find the culprit. Did an assassin sneak aboard in the night—or is there a killer hiding on the snowbound train? The suspects include a meek governess (two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty), the dead man’s servant (Hugh Bonneville, Downton Abbey), an imperious princess (Eileen Atkins, The Crown), an army colonel (David Morrissey, The Walking Dead), and a pushy American (Barbara Hershey, Hannah and Her Sisters). As Poirot sorts through the conflicting clues, what he discovers may shake him to his core. Sinister and foreboding, Agatha Christie’s quintessential murder mystery is brought to life by an all-star cast and explores the nature of justice and the limits of the law."

This “stand alone” DVD is making its third appearance of the same version of the film. It has been included in Poirot “collection” DVDs in the past. My guess is that this release was times to catch the publicity of a NEW feature film version of the classic Agatha Christie mystery. That is fine and well, and I did like it, but readers should know that this is not a remastered version or any different from the previous ones. It’s just at a lower list price. And there are no bonus features; just the film.
By the way, the international cast is great with Toby Jones and Jessica Chastain and one of my favorites since the 1970s – Barbara Hershey. The production values are also high.
As with most other Acorn titles the English subtitles are very easy to read. You probably won’t need them, but they are there
I always recommend that customers sort reviews by “newest first” and note the date of the review compared with the release date. In this case, you can look at the earlier reviews if it’s the production or story or acting that you are interested in. This is the same fiolm, whether released in 2010 or 2017,
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
