Someone asked me this once. My answer, which is still the same today, is that Suchet for me is best in the shorter 1 Hour episodes of Poirot. I think Ustinov and Finney do better in the movie versions of Poirot. Most of Suchet's tv movies, at least for me, didn't turn out that great compared to Ustinov and Finney's versions.
Ustinov was the Ideal Hollywood Poirot, a Characature of the Man which is what you want for a Film but Suchet Looks like Poirot where as Ustinov Didn't so I would say it depends what you want, Do you want a Light film then Ustinov, If you want accuracy where you can see the Humour then Suchet.
