My review of Poirot Classic Collection 2 has been published over at Blogcritics. I really enjoyed this collection, but then again, it is Poirot, so I expected to. I’m not going to post the pre-pub versions of my reviews here, like I have been, so here’s just an excerpt to entice you to go read the full review if you want to:
The films themselves are the meat of the product, and they are just as good as one expects them to be. Poirot remains the central character throughout, and is frequently joined by his regular film companions Captain Hastings, Chief Inspector Japp, and Miss Lemon. These three characters, while present in the books, are not as prominent as they are portrayed on film. However, this serves the series well by providing the tools for character development via the relationship that Poirot has with each.
