    Charity workers go on long way round train journey to get home, meet fellow travellers, couple get separated, Russian police involved.
    Quite a decent thriller which builds up nicely & has the inevitable "goes bonkers" at the end.
    It does have some plot holes but always good to see Ben Kingsley in sinister roles & Emily Mortimer is very good too.

    This is a silly movie. It definitely got too high a score from the critics. Stephen Holden, of the Times, spoiled the ending in the first line of his review. Well, I guess the movie spoiled itself. This is lazy filmmaking. Whoever mentioned **** in the same breath as this needs to have his mouth washed out with soap.

    Terrible, terrible film. Desperately tries to be offbeat and sinister. Fails completely. Awful script, awful characters, awful acting. Please do not listen to the critics who are paid good money to pander to rubbish like this.

    Mortimer delivers as a mentally disintegrating wife, but it's Harrelson who provides the most fun, playing against type as the down-home Roy.
  2. A vigorous, fast-paced tale that entwines plot with character and psychology set against an incredibly exotic backdrop.

    An engagingly up-to-date melodrama steeped in local color and steered by a treacherous sense of morality.
