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: 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...
