(2017 Malta / US 114 mins)
Branagh delivers all of the eye-saucering exteriors you’d expect, as mountaintops soar, sunlight glints at the end of tunnels and stations snuggle under a duvet of blue snow. More pleasing still is how well the format adapts to the cramped confines of the locomotive – elegant tracking shots navigate the space smoothly … the on-form cast rivals the star power of Sidney Lumet’s 1974 ensemble, and a playful coda set up a sequel.
