    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.

    Director Omid Nooshin gives this story harrowing touches largely through arresting camera angles and aggressive editing. He ensures that “Last Passenger” features a couple of jaw-dropping moments even as it traverse familiar ground.

    Mr. Nooshin stirs a mystery that’s light on special effects and bravely uncomplicated. He may not have much money, but his feel for age and class dynamics is sure, and his actors respond.

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

    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.

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

    Nooshin holds on to a strain of logic that doesn't often survive at this level of filmmaking.

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

    First-time feature director Omid Nooshin makes the best of a minuscule budget, and his punchy script doesn’t brake for breath.

    Takes its time to get going, and characters are pretty cartoonish (watch out for the humorless old guy, and the wacky Russian!) Best acting job is by a kid. Still, a decent popcorn picture, and the special effects bely a reported micro-budget.. Full Review »
