All Critics (1)

The modest suspense film packs enough tension to make it watchable and Glenn Ford, as always, delivers a fine performance.

Audience Reviews for Terror on a Train

Terror on a train (AKA Time Bomb) is an empty, hollow shell of a movie disguised as classic cinema. Don't be fooled; this picture is just as clichéd and derivative as most Hollywood trash nowadays.

Very fast paced and suspenseful, short and to the point. Good performance by Glenn Ford. Well photographed. Good story keeps the viewer very interested. Well written.
