Kenneth Branagh's "Murder on the Orient Express" is a visual feast, bursting with movie stars, glamour and production value so high you might just exit the theater experiencing some time-warp whiplash.Branagh plays the lead, Hercule Poirot, a dandy Belgian detective with a gloriously over-the-top mustache who can only see the world as it should be.It's still fun enough to see Depp hamming it up with a thick New York accent, Pfeiffer vamping around the train's hallways and Branagh careening between giddy parody and self-seriousness as a man who delights in a well-constructed pastry and a good turn of phrase.Branagh certainly steals scenes as Poirot, but the director might have taken more time to ensure that all of his characters were given as loving a treatment as his own, or the setting, which is truly quite splendid to behold.
