Critic Reviews for Last Passenger
Last Passenger is a good antithesis to the overloaded and cluttered action Hollywood seems to love nowadays.
While Last Passenger is in the same vein as films such as Unstoppable, Speed, Joy Ride, and Premium Rush, it lacks a proper resolution and its empty thrills don't make up for its inadequate amount of substance.
It (almost literally) runs off the rails with a series of twists that ultimately invite more laughs than tension.
Mr. Nooshin stirs a mystery that's light on special effects and bravely uncomplicated.
Although the film, Nooshin's first feature, takes a while to become fully propulsive, it eventually puts forth an effective series of red herrings, close calls and clock-ticking action scenes.
Altogether, this is a brilliantly done entry in the non-blockbuster suspense genre -- of which we haven't had enough lately.
Scott's excellent turn in this gripping indie thriller proves he can handle action roles.
A runaway-train action thriller that coasts along serviceably for a bit before entering Boredom Station, this British-produced rip-off of Speed lacks compelling characterizations.
Like so many late-night journeys, Last Passenger starts out full of promise, but only stops at places we've already been.
Omid Nooshin's sturdy runaway-train thriller chugs up a decent amount of suspense.
Intelligent and strongly acted, Last Passenger is a white-knuckle thrill ride that, despite its small budget, is capable of going toe-to-toe with the best thrillers coming out of Hollywood today
While Last Passenger is a campy B-movie, it possesses greater aesthetic aspirations, and the film's stylistic ambition is ultimately what makes it an entertaining ride.
A modest thrill ride that wastes not a second of its pulse-pounding 96 minutes
If you've wondered what goes on inside a driver's cab, or glimpsed something indecipherable through a rain-spattered carriage window, it should just work.
Nooshin succeeds in keeping things suitably tense throughout, throwing in a few decent set pieces without compromising the credibility of the situation, at least until a slightly overblown finale.
Stays on the rails thanks to strong performances, snappy dialogue and a relentless pace.
As six commuters bicker and learn to work together, some overripe dialogue and a well-worn plot are tempered by an admirable reluctance to humanise the terrorist ...
On the surface this may appear to be a dramatic and outlandish thriller, it remains a tale you can relate to
