Critic Reviews for Night Train
uses some common archetypes, like strangers on a train and the power of human greed, and in this sense it really feels like a feature-length version of a Twilight Zone episode
NEM has given the film a shoddy Blu-ray presentation to match, making this a release best left avoided altogether.
... King betrays his own objective to make a classical thriller and succumbs to the standard triteness of direct-to-DVD schlock.
I'm not exactly saying you shouldn't see Night Train, but afterward I was all... uh, bored.
Audience Reviews for Night Train
Stupid and pointless.
"I really like Steve Zahn and Danny Glover. But this was not their best performances. Well no, more like not their best film cause their performances were solid. The movie tries to be mysterious, but it only ends up being confusing and pointless. The ending was crap too. I really enjoyed the first half, but by the middle it started losing its steam (pun inteded). Leelee impressed me by being really creepy in this movie. You never knew if she was being sincere or just waiting for her chance to strike her scythe (not literally, figuratively) down on you. It just wasn't what I was hoping it would be. Not worth seeing more than once."
The film quality was distractingly bad, and I almost turned it off. But the wife wanted more, so we watched. It got pretty interesting for the first half of the movie. Then suddenly, it was like a new movie started and everything went to hell very quickly. Let's just say it went from "this is kinda cool" to "what the hell is going on?" in just a few minutes. Not a terrible movie, but one you should only watch under the right mood.
