Pretty good. Nothing spectacular.

The 39 Steps is a likable made for BBC film based on the book by John Buchan. The Alfred Hitchcock version is a classic and this film takes a smarter approach than the film-makers did that remade Psycho. Rather than being a shot by shot remake, it's pretty different than the Hitchcock version even if the plot is a lot alike. I also think Rupert Penry-Jones did a fine job in the lead as a man mistaken as a murderer of a spy and on the run from police.
