MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESSMURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS

“I understand that it’s old school in that sense, but it’s too slow and lacks any semblance of consistent energy.” – Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

“The joke, of course, would be that you’d probably have to turn it into a superhero movie… except that’s pretty much EXACTLY what’s been done here.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

LADY BIRDLADY BIRD

“succeeds in constantly subverting whatever read you may have on it.” – Sam Cohen, Substream

“One of the most important parts of growing up is realizing what a pain in the ass you were as a kid.” – Sean Burns, WBUR
