Cast of Characters of Murder on the Orient Express
The actors who make up the cast for this movie look as if they were hand-picked for their parts. In fact, I did not see any actor who seemed out of place in his or her role. Of course the lead character played by Kenneth Branagh personified his character in such a way that you would think if there is any mystery to be solved, he would be the one to do it.
Wardrobe and Setting of the Orient Express
From the movie trailer, you can see where it looked like everyone was decked out in their finest duds. Just a minor precaution -- Some of the actors seemed to talk rather quickly, so when you see this movie, keep your ears open. Regarding the scenery -- I liked that the director did not use the familiar beige-colored hued background lighting to let you know it is a period film. Regular lighting worked well and showed the actors and the setting in a realistic light. I especially enjoyed watching the train moving against the snow covered environment.
