Awwww...that sucks. I was super interested in it (though that might be because it reminded me so much of Gone Girl, which was amazing).

All well.

Dont mean to blow any whistles here, but criticism of work about trains kinda presents a generous platform for critics to railroad plenty of puns towards the audience.
Sorry.

Recently saw Gone Girl last week, great film. Trent Reznor keeps his unmistakable style with the soundtrack too.

Okay, that's enough. I'm going to slam on the emergency breaks and get a conductor, lest you blow any more steam.

(Yes, I admit I'm grasping at straws here.)

had a feeling it may not be good. but yes, i also had to think of gone girl which is a damn good movie.
but this train movie, already the trailer didnt really impress me. looked rather stale and nothing really to go on. were with gone girl, it did feel like a psycho thriller/drama and thats what i got out of it. yeah well, maybe when i see it for rent on dvd, i may give it a shot.

"a film that looks good on paper" - I see what you did there.

I could tell that this was going to be crap by how obviously Hollywooded it had been. i.e. casting a very attractive woman as the main character who is an alcoholic nervous wreck who is clearly past her prime and replacing the suburban England setting were commuter train casually overlook people's back gardens most of the time from only a few metres away.
