    This handsomely made suspense yarn proves an engrossing, pulse-quickening journey.

    While certainly a formulaic genre film, it's nevertheless a formula executed with a great sensitivity to visual engagement.

    Last Passenger is a good antithesis to the overloaded and cluttered action Hollywood seems to love nowadays. If you're not feeling especially picky on plot or character, you won't go wrong with this compelling and stylish train thriller.

    A sturdy runaway-train thriller that flaunts its influences but chugs up a decent amount of suspense.

    Some overripe dialogue and a well-worn plot are tempered by an admirable reluctance to humanise the terrorist.

    Like so many late-night journeys, Last Passenger starts out full of promise, but only stops at places we’ve already been.

    First-time feature director Omid Nooshin deftly downplays his budgetary limitations. He creates a sense of tension on the confining set and draws as much as possible out of a strong cast, led by Scott.

But then I was slowly drawn into the enclosed space of the film, and felt strangely nostalgic about the old slam door train they used. There is a real sense of being there with them which adds to the being 'drawn in' effect, and helps you relate to the characters (even the slightly cartoonish stereotype). If you liked unstoppable, then you will like this lower budget cousin, which has a real 3-dimensional human aspect, coupled with a hint of an agatha christie 'who done it'. Its my surprisingly good movie of the evening. Expand

Still, a decent popcorn picture, and the special effects bely a reported micro-budget.. Expand
