    Compelling, beatifully photographed, implausible plot, unsatisfying ending.

    A good idea gone dumb, but somewhat engaging. The heavy-handed morality play is evident from the very first scene, and is revisited throughout. Still, this was actually a decent little thriller until the last third or so, then the film, uh, jumps the rail, so to speak. You'll know the moment it happens when you watch it. Good performances though, especially Emily Mortimer and the guy A good idea gone dumb, but somewhat engaging.

Good performances though, especially Emily Mortimer and the guy playing Carlos. Abby's character could have used a little more fleshing out, given how the movie ends. In all, I wished the ending was better. Expand

    "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.

    No idea why this film has such a high score . Nothing interesting really during two hours. It tries to be sinister but it does not go anywhere. Poor acting mixed with poor characters also doesn't help.

    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.
