what da' hell is up with ken's mustache?...it is atrocious...(and i'm certainly not crazy about michelle pfeiffer being in there either...)...
but now to the answer...i believe derek jacobi will probably come across best...followed of course by the wonderful dame judi dench...
First, let me clarify that I'm an old bat! LOL 65-y-o to be exact. Thus, have grown up with all the Poirot's, and Agatha Christie in general, (first books, then movies, then the various television series').
There is always a problem when re-making an already perfect movie... and, sad-to-say, such will be the case of the newly produced 'Murder on the Orient Express'. The 1974 movie, (with Albert Finney as Poirot), was, is, and will remain, incomparable. And I'm not just talking Finney here, but the entire Cast, Directing, and Set Design et al.
Now then, David Suchet is my all-time favourite Poirot, yet, even he could not surpass Albert Finney's performance in that one movie. Personally, I feel that, overall, David Suchet captures Agatha's book-born Poirot to a T. But, the book-born Poirot was, and is, just too fussy for the grisly 'Murder on the Orient Express', and have to wonder if Albert realized this and made 'his' Poirot more aggressive... as especially expressed in his interrogation and soliloquy scenes. Whether conscious of this or not, Albert's portrayal of Poirot is, in-a-word, exquisite.
I'm looking forward to seeing this new rendition, but don't hold much hope for it. Like I said, one cannot transcend perfection.
