Movie Review – A Haunting in Venice

Read Time:1 Minute, 45 Second


It doesn’t do anything to move the needle in the mystery genre, but if you’re a fan of the Hercule Poirot movies then you’ll probably feel right at home.

This story did do an interesting job intertwining the aspect of the supernatural in a way that fits with a Hercule move. I checked IMDb and RottenTomatoes and this movies user-rating is pretty much in line with the other two.

One of the most useful apps I’ve ever come across. I’ve used it for years and recommended it to all my friends. Even if I’m not the type to have to pee during movies often, being able to pull up the app and pass my phone to my mom/friend/grandma so that they know when to go to the bathroom has been invaluable. Because then I don’t have to summarize anything when they get back!!

Personally, it’s hard to review a mystery movie because this is the hardest genre by far to do Peetimes for. It takes a lot of focus to keep up with notes during the movie and that really distracts from the enjoyment. And part of the enjoyment of a mystery movie is trying to figure out what’s going to happen. I just don’t have the mental bandwidth available to even try. But my wife watched it and she told me who the killer was about 30 seconds before the scene when Hercule spills the beans. So it is possible to enjoy this movie and extrapolate from the clues and figure out the mystery yourself.

Grade: C+

About The Peetimes: I’ve said many times, mystery movies are the hardest to do Peetimes for. If you like mysteries then I’m sure you understand why. I recommend the 2nd Peetime. It’s near the middle of the movie and is the only Peetime that is fairly easy to summarize. The first Peetime is suitable, but the last Peetime is for emergencies only.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of A Haunting in Venice.

One response to “Movie Review – A Haunting in Venice”

  1. From the moment I saw the beginning of the trailer, I knew I wasn’t going to see A Haunting in Venice. Scary, horror flicks are not my style. Then I realized the trailer was for an Agatha Christie “Hercule Poirot” story. Plus it’s only PG-13, so how horror-ific could it be. Boy am I thrilled I convinced myself to see it.

    I lovvvved A Haunting in Venice! To me, it is the best of Kenneth Branagh’s Poirot movies by a landslide, and a brilliant interpretation of Agatha Christie’s storytelling. Questions you didn’t even know you had are answered by the extremely satisfying end.
    Don’t forget to allow yourself to chuckle when watching this. There definitely light quips and digs peppered throughout. I enjoyed them immensely, too.
