Academy Awards 1978 - Best Costume Design
Rating: 7/10 -- The way the investigation plays out is more dynamic than that in Orient Express, with less of a focus on interrogation only and more twists and turns to come, and the ending is very satisfying. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Okay whodunit suffers by comparison with Murder on the Orient Express.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Death on the Nile is a fine entertainment that is lovely to look at and easy to enjoy. Full Review
Spirituality and Practice
There is not one likeable character among the extensive cast, which results in the logical reaction of being indifferent to the plot and its development. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Not bad if a bit dry.

Rating: 4/5 -- Fun, if not cookie-cutter, Agatha Christie-based flick w/Peter Ustinov fine as Det. Hercule Poirot.
...DEATH ON THE NILE is a clever, witty, well-plotted, beautifully produced and splendidly acted screen version of Agatha Christie's mystery. It's old fashioned entertainment with a big cast and lush locations...
A deluxe version of Agatha Christie's favorite mystery story, published in 1937, and a thematic follow-up to her Murder on the Orient Express. Set aboard a steamship cruising down the Nile, an extremely unpopular heiress is murdered and everyone on the ship is suspect. The passengers include the eminent detective Hercule Poirot (Ustinov), who cuts short his vacation in order to solve the mystery. The cast features the cream of '70s Hollywood and even includes classic-era stars Davis and Niven.
