Movie Info

A documentary filmmaker boards a train at Grand Central Terminal, heading to upstate New York to interview the subjects of his latest project. A chance encounter with a mysterious young woman leads him on a journey of a very different sort, and within the blink of an eye, Hart is forced to leave his complacent life behind for a world in which the line between fantasy and reality is blurred. As Hart tells his strange story to a police detective he finds himself being questioned as Martin tries to discover whether Hart is the victim or the suspect in the strange affair. (c) Monterey Media

Critic Reviews for The Girl on The Train

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

A paper-thin plot ornamented with distractions: a nonlinear narrative, unreliable narrators, flatulent dialogue and awkward post-production work.

Top Critic

The Girl on the Train believes it's far more intelligent than it actually is, both in structure and in storytelling.

Audience Reviews for The Girl on The Train

A well done piece of neo-noir. The story is in the classic mold but an original concept. The acting is very good. The one thing that detracts seriously from the movie (and keeps it from getting four stars from me) is some really terrible dialogue. Too much of the dialogue is pretentious and pseudo-intellectual.

Garbage. Listless mystery, uneventfully shot and fake in every scene. Nobody speaks like a human, they all speak like they have an overarching and mediocre screenwriter feeding them lines, a la Cyrano de Bergerac. Avoid at all costs.
