Plot summary

What is Death on the Nile movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Death on the Nile" movie plot summary.

In World War I, the young Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) devises a strategy to help the Allied forces reclaim land against the Central forces, however he is unable to stop his captain's death from a booby trap, which mutilates Poirot's face. He is tended to by his lover, nurse Catherine, who encourages him to grow his mustache to hide his scars. In 1937, Poirot enters a club where jazz singer Salome Otterbourne (Sophie Okonedo) is performing. He witnesses Jacqueline "Jackie" de Bellefort (Emma Mackey) introduce her fiancé Simon Doyle (Armie Hammer) to her childhood friend, heiress Linnet Ridgeway (Gal Gadot), to offer him employment. Linnet hires Simon on the spot, and sparks fly between the two to Jackie's discomfort.
Six months later, Poirot is vacationing in Egypt when he encounters his friend Bouc (Tom Bateman) and meets his mother Euphemia (Annette Bening), a renowned painter. Bouc introduces Poirot to his friends Linnet and Simon, who have married and are celebrating their honeymoon. The honeymoon is joined by several guests: Linnet's longtime maid Louise Bourget; Salome; Salome's niece and manager and Linnet's old classmate Rosalie; Linnet's communist-leaning godmother Marie Van Schuyler; Van Schuyler's nurse Mrs. Bowers; Linnet's cousin Andrew Katchadourian (Ali Fazal), who is in charge of Linnet's will; and doctor Linus Windlesham (Russell Brand), who had been engaged to Linnet before she left him for Simon. Linnet and Simon request protection from Poirot as Jackie has followed them there, having become an obsessive stalker wanting to win Simon back after their engagement fell apart.
Desiring to escape from Jackie but not wanting to disrupt their honeymoon, the couple opt to board the cruise S.S. Karnak with their guests. However, Linnet admits to Poirot that she is paranoid and does not trust her guests. During a stopover at the Abu Simbel, Bouc confesses to Poirot that he is dating Rosalie, despite Euphemia's disapproval. Poirot gives him his blessing, while Bouc encourages him to find love. Poirot begins showing interest towards the charismatic Salome. Linnet and Simon narrowly evade a collapsing boulder, and after escaping a sandstorm, the guests return to the Karnak only to find Jackie had also boarded. Linnet and Simon decide to leave the following morning and share a final farewell with Poirot. An intoxicated Poirot encounters Jackie, who is still adamant in wanting to win back Simon; Poirot shares to her that he was supposed to be with Catherine after the war ended, but she died from a mortar explosion, which led to Poirot closing himself to romantic feelings. While Linnet leaves to sleep for the night, Simon confronts and insults Jackie, prompting her to instinctively shoot at his leg before immediately feeling remorse and kicking her gun away. Bouc and Rosalie bring Jackie to be tended by Mrs. Bowers (Dawn French), while Windlesham tends to Simon's wound.
