Critic Reviews for Night Train to Munich (Gestapo)

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

Yarn is not only told without a single letdown, but it actually continues to pile up suspense to a nerve-clutching pitch.

The cast and script are fine, but Reed fatally lacks Hitchcock's light, witty touch and his effortless ability to create suspense out of ordinary circumstances.

Top Critic

It's fast, furious and funny but, even with that master of atmosphere Carol Reed as director, it could have done with a couple of fresh tricks to keep us guessing.

Takes awhile to catch fire. It's always engaging, though, and builds by stages to a riveting climax at the Swiss border that would have done the Master of Suspense proud.

What is does offer is a mix of wit and wiles, a genuinely startling sequence in a concentration camp... and sprightly performance by Rex Harrison...

Audience Reviews for Night Train to Munich (Gestapo)


A bit methodical in its presentation but still a classic rendering of intrigue and high drama. Rex Harrison and Paul Henreid are superb!

Night Train to Munich has its moments but its generally pretty dull. Margaret Lockwood helped keep me interested but outside of the nifty miniature-based finale, the comic relief and the irony of seeing Victor Laszlo play a Nazi, I wasn't exactly enthralled. Night Train to Munich isn't exactly awful but I can't for the life of my figure out why there's a Criterion edition of this.

A lot of fun, but not quite as good as Lady Vanishes. Chalders and Caldicott are AWESOME!
