The best thing about this movie is the opening scene. We meet Hercule Poirot and his unique personality, and moustache in the middle of avoiding a religious war at Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, and things are off to a great start. The story flows and so does the action, and before we know it, we find ourselves along with Poirot on the Orient Express from Istanbul to London.
Could this be one of the few movies in which Keanu Reeves actually appears to act well?
The director of John Wick, Chad Stahelski, was Keanu’s stunt double on The Matrix, and since worked his way into stunt co-ordinator on movies like 300, The Expendables, and The Hunger Games, and this is his first time as director, teaming up again with Keanu.
