Reviews

IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Expensive but never fancy, and solid enough to emit a faint whiff of sophistication, this entire project is powered by the same eccentric confidence that allows Branagh to play Hercule Poirot like a neutered Pepé le Pew.

Consequence - Liz Shannon Miller
A far more intimate portrait of the detective than one might expect.

IGN - Siddhant Adlakha
It takes Death on the Nile far longer than it should to reach its most impactful moments, but actor-director Kenneth Branagh cares deeply enough about Detective Poirot to make it work.
63
Slant Magazine - Dan Rubins
Once things get moving, it’s smooth sailing to the double-shocker of a denouement.

TheWrap - Robert Abele
Branagh’s indulgences can grate, but you also sense how much he loves it all, which helps. It also helps that production designer Jim Clay’s elaborate recreations (of an age-specific steamer and Aswan’s Cataract Hotel) and Paco Delgado’s stylish period clothing make for steadily appealing visuals, and that the story is one of Christie’s more tantalizing, hot-tempered mysteries.
