Bad time intervenes when their old friend interferes with the event and also, a series of deaths suddenly starts to take place during their good times.

The Landscapes

Yes, there has been too much usage of the green screen, but it genuinely prepended some alluring effects on the presentation. Every scene that required the CGI effect changed the mood of the sequence with its picturesque montages.

The slanted golden lights, falling over the landscapes were too good. It was beautifully styled to match the theme of Egypt and the ambiance of the plot.

The Music

The lyrics of the blues played in the background and prominently on the occasions, were beautifully placed. If you render a close look at the lines, you will understand what the plot has in store for you. Each time a note is played something new or a change of events is sure to transcend.

Basically, the music in the movie were maps, steering the plot brilliantly. You just have to put a closer look at the lines.

The Scripts

The lines written for each of the characters held some elegance and significance that stunningly added gravity to each of the courses of the flick. Be it a romantical scene, a betrayal scene, or a death scene, the pitching of the lines by the actors was superb. Hence it calculated depth of the roles along with the episodes taking place in the movie.

The Camerawork

The camerawork in this movie is great. It takes you in first-person perspective and then slowly changes the view giving you an idea of whoever is present or missing on the screen. It was mesmerizingly executed thus offering us, the audience several tricky angles to enjoy the movie.

The Direction

The direction of Death On The Nile(2022) was not up to the mark. If you watch the movie paying unfeigned focus, then you might even end up deducing who is the killer on your very first watch. Yes, the direction gave way too much in a murder mystery hence the plot point seemed predictable from the very beginning.

Also, there were a few unneeded scenes in the movie. Those unrequired instances are completely built to launch any new or recurring character on the show. It seemed shallow and extra, reducing the gravity of the sequence.

The Performance

All the talented actors, who were involved with this project, gave us a pretty number of nice and satisfying performances in their other projects. However, in Death On The Nile(2022) they did not give their best.

You may feel either they are overacting or underacting. Thanks a lot to the script that saved their performance in the movie.
