The classic suspense masterpiece “Death on the Nile” has been released in North America on February 11, 2022.
“Death on the Nile” is back with an elite cast of “Murder on the Orient Express” by Oscar-nominated director Kenneth Branagh to recreate the Egyptian scene.
Wonder Woman Gal Gadot leads an all-star cast to perform, and the classic story of “Queen of Reasoning” Agatha Christie returns to the big screen.
The film has both suspenseful reasoning and a deeper dissection of human nature… There are many things to watch.
After the film’s overseas word of mouth was lifted, it was regarded by film critics as “a must-see suspense and reasoning masterpiece of the year”, an Agatha-style travel that must be immersed and enjoyed on the big screen.
Highlight 1: Wonder Woman leads the All-Star Mystery
Like its predecessor “Murder on the Orient Express”, “Death on the Nile” is also a group drama with many charismatic characters.
This time, it was led by Wonder Woman Gal Gadot. The show was full of sparks on the stage, and the audience was addicted to the show.
Gal Gadot devotes a feast of acting skills in this film, tries a new genre, and becomes a billion-dollar heiress with peerless elegance.
Kenneth Branagh plays Poirot a second time as the sharp and witty, who brings a detective’s sharpness and cuteness to life.
Four-time Oscar-nominated Annette Bening played one of the suspects, and the audience was addicted to her superb acting skills.
The new generation such as Rose Leslie of “Game of Thrones” and Emma Mackey, a beautiful French girl, bring more youthful vitality.
Under the deduction of the all-star lineup, the multi-angle romance entangled in love and the suspicious investigation and mystery are doubly exciting, and the intrigue and the frontal “tear” confrontation are even more enjoyable.
A film critic said: “Gadot shines brightly in this film, and the confrontation between Poirot and the whole boat of suspects is even more tense!”
Highlight 2: “Queen of Reasoning” Agatha’s Classic Reappearance
“Death on the Nile” is based on Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name.
Agatha is not only the master of detective novels who was awarded the title of “Queen of Reasoning” by the Queen of England, but also the best-selling author in human history certified by Guinness.
His works have sold over 2 billion copies and have been translated into hundreds of languages.
The image of detective Poirot created by her is as famous as Holmes, which has swept the world for a hundred years and is loved by readers around the world.
The influence of Agatha’s works breaks through the category of literature. A large number of classic works have been adapted into film and television versions for many times, all of which are sensational.
The original “Death on the Nile” is a classic among the Agatha classics, “satisfying all the fantasies of the reader about mystery fiction”.
In the movie, the classic original work and the excellent adaptation are dually blessed, and the crime mystery woven by the movie is suspenseful and reversal.
In addition, the film focuses more on uncovering the complex and erratic truth about human nature and destiny, and no character is completely innocent or heinous.
As the director explained: “The depiction of human nature in the original book is the treasure of film creators, and it is also one of the reasons why Agatha’s works are so popular. She is not only good at creating puzzles, but also good at describing real human nature.”
Highlight 3: Oscar-level director personally sculpted
Like its predecessor “Murder on the Orient Express”, Oscar-nominated director Kenneth Branagh once again challenged Agatha’s masterpiece, directing himself and starring again as Poirot.
Branagh not only accurately restores the Poirot in the original book in appearance, but also impresses the audience with his master-level acting skills.
Poirot, performed by him, switches easily between humor, wit and old-fashioned, and every scene is a wonderful show!

Highlight 4: The ultimate audio-visual tour takes the audience to Egypt
Released in 2017, “Murder on the Orient Express” was well received by book and movie fans alike.
