Movie Info

It has been two years since the sensation caused by her eleven-day disappearance and Agatha is contemplating giving up detective novels to pursue a serious literary career. Seeking escape and inspiration, she travels to Baghdad on an archaeological tour. What she finds is turmoil: the world's biggest oil field has just been discovered and Iraq's ancient treasures are under threat. Agatha also finds a charming, naive young archaeologist, Max, who needs her help as a series of murders unfold in the faded grandeur of the villa where they are staying. Has Agatha met her match?

Critic Reviews for Agatha and the Curse of Ishtar

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

It was a neat and jolly enough premise but sadly, the ideas were superior to their execution.

In its denouement, which you could see coming for quite some time, it simply proved what Christie fans know: the queen of crime is not easily emulated.

December 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Another enjoyable melding of fact and fiction.
