Critic Reviews for Death on the Nile
Death on the Nile is an admirable addition to the Christie-on-film canon with a cast of game, if sometimes hammy, actors and just the right amount of murder, mystery and mayhem.
The intricacies of the plot, the top production values, and a splendid cast add up to stellar entertainment.
Once it gets going, Death on the Nile is bright and leisurely, like a vacation, and the notes of humor are enough to keep things from getting too heavy.
It takes an uncommonly long time for murder to actually transpire and director Guillermin has not known how to take up the slack.
Audience Reviews for Death on the Nile
Great locations (that may not even be available for filing these days), really great costumes, thrilling story with a surprise ending. What more could you want?! Lansbury is marvelously over-the-top as a faded lush. Ustinov really is the best Poirot ever bringing both humor and gravity when needed. On the down side: Niven plays his usual, shallow stock character; and the poorly-rendered foreign accents are a bit distracting. (I'm looking at you, Jack Warden!) Bette Davis struggles a little, but she still pulls it off. Despite the minor faults, it's a thoroughly enjoyable film.
Not nearly as good as Murder On the Orient Express, even a step down from Evil Under the Sun, but colorful Christie tale with fine production values and a good cast with Angela Lansbury, Bette Davis and Maggie Smith standing out. One of the problems is overlength another is a too deliberate pace but if yo're a mystery fan still a worthwhile watch. Ustinov of course is perfect as Poirot.
This is pretty great TV Movie based upon the Novel written by Agath Christie with late Sr.Peter Ustinov and Angela Lansberry as a Alcoholic widow. It was funny to see Lanburry as an Alcoholic.
