The likes of Michelle Pfeiffer and Judi Dench deserve to be painted as more than one dimensional characters.
Other than Branagh, the only other stand-out in the cast was Tom Bateman (as Bouc). But I like to feel engaged in the story; I like to feel like I could solve the mystery myself if I were paying close enough attention. There is no smoking gun to be discovered by the audience.

It is rare to see an ensemble cast with all “A-list” stars.
Due to Lilith's supposed independence from Adam, she has been called "the world's first feminist." The Hebrew Lilith and Akkadian Līlītu are female adjectives from the Proto-Semitic root LYL "night", literally translating to nocturnal "female night being/demon", although cuneiform inscriptions where Līlīt and Līlītu refers to disease-bearing wind spirits exist.
The Akkadian Lil-itu ("lady air") may be a reference to the Sumerian goddess Ninlil (also "lady air"), Goddess of the South wind and wife of Enlil.
Later accounts depict lilitu as a name for one figure and several spirits.
In ancient Iraq, the south wind was associated with the onset of summer dust storms and general ill-health.
It could have been a “don’t leave your seat for fear of missing something” movie, and it wasn’t. No detail was spared in making Murder look authentic.
The plot moves at a snail’s pace, and I blame that on the under use of the brilliant cast. The production design was so well done, that I found myself entertained by the scenery when the plot stalled. I would wait for Murder to be available on some at-home video format before endeavoring to watch it. Murder is pretty to watch, but not pretty enough to justify the two-hour run time.
The Lilitu were said to prey upon children and women, and were described as associated with lions, storms, desert, and disease.
Early portrayals of lilitu are known as having Zu bird talons for feet and wings.
