Death on the Nile takes place when Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is seen in the ending of the previous movie, Murder on the Orient Express, leaving the train after solving the murder case. He gets notified by an officer at the train station that a murder has taken place on the Nile River in Egypt.
The plot for Death on the Nile takes us through a vacation aboard a dazzling river steamer, but everything comes to a halt when a murder occurs. The serenity of the Nile cruise is crushed when they discover that Linnet Ridgeway is shot through the head. The time comes again for Mr. Poirot to do his duty and find the killer before it’s too late. The film features a multicultural group of the finest dressed travelers, as the story reveals several twists and turns that will keep audiences guessing the murderer. Until, to their ultimate surprise, the killer turns out to be someone which they would never have expected. The movie’s story arrives at a landscape of the Egyptian desert with perfect views, including the Great Pyramids of Giza.
Poirot’s friend Bouc (Tom Bateman) is the one familiar face to return. The movie is among author Agatha Christie’s best-loved and most famous works that combine jealousy, love, and betrayal. Inspiration for this novel came from Agatha’s travels to Egypt, where she documented geographical and historical details during her time there. Kenneth Branagh is the director of Twentieth Century’s mind-bending movie Death on the Nile, released on February 10th, 2022. If you are into mystery movies and like to keep guessing the murderer throughout the film, then this is your cup of tea.
Now the craziest thing is this movie has been banned in Kuwait and Lebanon in protest of the former Israeli military officer: Gal Gadot.
