This is more entertaining than its predecessor, but the supporting cast isn’t as strong, and Hammer’s presence doesn’t help the situation. It’s worthy of a one-time watch due to Branagh, Mackey and Gadot, & the stellar cinematography & production design.

Ultimately, Death on the Nile is an entertaining film but feels less like a blockbuster production you watch on opening night and more like a film you stream on a quiet evening at home.
