As the world teeters on the brink of war, ten strangers are persuaded to retreat from their troubled lives to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast.

If you are not an Agatha Christy fan don't rent this dvd. I had the best nap while this movie was playing. Long. Drawn out. Boring. Uninteresting.

Good acting and scenery with a little underlying proper English menace ~ 420

Beautifully filmed, great actors, a bit gory. Remake and rename of Ten Little Indians.

This is one of the best mystery stories ever written. It has been filmed many times, but unfortunately none is satisfactory and worthy of the exceptional story. Considering the cast, I thought this may be it. However the screen play, by somebody named Sara Phelps (who goes on to do even more damage to The Witness for the Prosecution next), leaves a lot to be desired. If only they had stuck to the story as it was written!
So far the 1945 Rene Clair version, while not great, is the best we have.

A bit long and slow but otherwise rich and faithful to Christie's book (all but one or two filmed versions are based on the stage play version which has a different ending).

This is a well done version of Agatha Christie's novel. At some points it is quite dark and graphic. You'll definitely be eager to finish it and find out who did it.

this is tv that has atmosphere. maeve dermody is a stunner. the interview with the adapter-writer is informative, and puts agatha in her true position on the world literary stage. didn't miss marple or poirot, in the least.

This is probably one of the most fascinating whodunnits ever written/staged/produced, and -in keeping with the book's original bleak ending- one of the darkest. BBC1 has generated something truly exquisite. Watching the three, one-hour-long episodes of 'And Then There Were None' was like a dream; I honestly don't remember blinking once, or even taking a single breath throughout my binge-watching. It's that good. The suspense will keep you rapt, the mystery will keep you guessing, and the brilliant performances of a stellar cast will keep you wanting more.

Enjoyed this adaptation of Christie's story much more than the compromised Hollywood versions of the 40's & 60's.

Tons of memorable lines, e.g.:

Whereabouts in the country?
-The Devon coast. Soldier Island.
===
I always think it's rather a weakness to be so affected by something in one's circumstances. Rather indulgent. Almost vain. We must be strong, Mrs. Rogers, especially in these times. We must be valiant...
and virtuous. We must be Englishwomen.
===
Although, you shouldn't call it a poem, Miss Claythorne. It's doggerel. Poetry should be uplifting.
===
She might look like the undead, but she can definitely cook.
===
Convention, Miss Claythorne, is what keeps us together in the face of impending chaos.
===
But why teach in a third-rate establishment producing third-rate girls? Barely worth your time and
effort, I would have thought.
===
I've had more than my fair share of lazy and vindictive staff.

Ten little Indian boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were nine.
Nine little Indian boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were eight.
Eight little Indian boys travelling in Devon;
One said he'd stay there and then there were seven.
Seven little Indian boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.
Six little Indian boys playing with a hive;
A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
Five little Indian boys going in for law;
One got in Chancery and then there were four.
Four little Indian boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three little Indian boys walking in the Zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Two little Indian boys sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was one.
One little Indian boy left all alone;
He went and hanged himself and then there were none.
