The Girl on the Train

Thriller


 

An alcoholic, divorced woman takes an interest in the lives of people she sees from the train every day and her fantasies turn into reality when she becomes involved in the case of a local missing woman.

"The Girl On The Train" is an acceptable attempt at a mystery, with enough intrigue to keep you engaged, but not quite enough panache to make it memorable. This film features adequate acting from all parties involved, but the rigid storyline and attempts to railroad viewers at every turn are a little tiresome. Some strange casting choices will irk fans of the source material, but overall this is a competent translation simply missing a wow factor. On the right track.
