Very nice thriller. Good acting from everyone on board. Not a must see but good entertainment.

Another critic-bought film. Really 93%? Audience at 65% for a reason. I watched 10 mins, read the Wiki for the plot and glad I didn't watch any more of this pointless dribble.

This movie is thriller, crime, tense, suspenseful, and rough. Emily Mortimer was fantastic. It's fun to watch Harrelson play an average, upbeat American guy. This movie has unbelievable thriller plot, decent beautiful cenimatography, strong characters, and solid performances. Even though it started off slow, it speeds up and really got me riveted near the end even it it was well past midnight. It will make you to think "What would I have done?" This is how a thriller movie is done! Well worth watching for a classic thriller-type film. Two thumbs up!

A good old yarn with a Siberian edge to it

Transibberian is a tense thriller that takes a familiar formula and tells it impressively well.

Was enjoying this. Especially the overtly friendly and embarrassing Woody Harrelsdon Character. After 1 hour my recording stopped. Will re record when next appears on TV

This is a slow, deliberate and carefully thought out piece for adults who like to savour rather than devour their thrills. Doesn't deserve a place among the classic train thrillers, but it offers enough cinematic amenities to be worth booking passage.

A very effective Hitchcockian thriller that starts off as a modest drama, taking a good time to develop its characters in a careful way, and then starts unexpectedly to become suffocatingly tense as the characters find themselves trapped more and more in an unbearable situation.

A promising opening and a slow burning suspense period which turned into a brainless speed thriller! Some of the action moments are laughable, including the bag you just cant get rid off. Shoot the storyteller.

If you actually want to see some obnoxious, clueless American tourists failing to find their own arses with both hands and a train timetable, just visit Katoomba.

Don't usually go for thrillers. Tend to not find them all that, should I say, thrilling. However, 'Transsiberian' effectively engaged me in a couple's train journey which ends up not going according to plan. Performances are good, the atmosphere constantly remains tense and the story's focused and grounded direction means it stays on the right track.

Two idiots who you wouldn't trust to leave their front door in the morning decide to take the Transsiberian and to make a series of bad decisions and 'duh' behaviours... One of those films that you end up rooting for the bad guys.

Excellent movie with a wonderful twist. Beware of strangers!

Atmospheric, engaging, unpredictable and tense. Woody Harrelson is wonderfully cast against type. Ben Kingsley begs the question "why do we see this guy so little these days?". Perhaps a one time success for director Brad Anderson who hasn't lived up to promise since, "Transsiberian" is a finely executed psychological thriller which offers excellent performances, pacing and gripping setpieces.

"Transsiberian" is a well-acted and beautifully-shot thriller that manages to keep its viewers on their proverbial toes, even if moral ambiguity may hamper character development.

The film abroad a train is full of suspense and tense moments which you as an audience enjoy. The better climax could have been cherry on the cake. A film to watch.

I really enjoyed this movie. For the first little while I thought it was going to be a bit boring, and also a bit annoying because the two central characters seem like such dorks. I knew a little bit of what it was about but even with that knowledge I wasn't prepared for what happened and it ended up being becoming very tense. Good performances by everybody. Well directed.

An oddly unlikeable Russian set thriller that fails to draw out enough intrigue from a plot that should have had it by the bucket load. This may have a good cast and a bit of money behind it, but it's more Roger Corman than it is Alfred Hitchcock, yet no one told the editor so this is a good twenty or so minutes too long. On a plus side this is largely still a decent watch. The direction is fine, the performances are better than the script deserves, and there are much worse thrillers out there. By the end what your left with is a simple time-passer that has strokes of quality but will struggle to last in the memory banks for very long, if at all.
