Hello everyone, I have just finished watching the movie Ten Little Indians, based off of the Agatha Christie book, And Then There Were None. Let me start off by saying that if you liked the book, then you’ll absolutely hate this movie, I assure you. Why, you may ask? Well, as you may know, I am a firm believer in the statement that, the book is better than the movie, so I always read the book first. Now I thoroughly enjoyed the book, however, in the movie there were characters that were added that weren’t in the book, and they just cut some characters out altogether.
Second of all, it veers off quite drastically from the plot line of the book. This is represented in the fact that in the book it was set on an island and that, in my opinion, is a huge part of the book, so the writers apparently decided that it was reasonable to set the movie on a mountain instead. Next, it was not well cast at all, the book was set in the early 1900s in England and the characters don’t even have, or mimic, a British accent. It also has probably some of the worst actings I’ve ever seen during my time on this planet. Seriously, a children’s theatre has better acting and quality than this, which brings me on to my next point. There was the worst cameraman filming this movie, really, who hired this guy? I mean, this movie really looks homemade.
Nextly, it is extremely sexist and stereotypical towards women which is not at all okay. There was also a lot of plot holes that I found, and everything, in my opinion, happens way too fast. Then there is the fact that there was no reasoning whatsoever in this movie, at one point they’re just like “Everyone is dying but hey, let’s have brunch first”. However, I do have one compliment for this movie, there is good music in the background, so brava to the composer of this movie. So let me tell you now, please don’t waste your money on this movie.
