Could've been a good, solid film except the director (Jaume Collet-Serra of "Non-Stop", another train film) didn't value plausibility enough this time.

When you lack plausibility you just take the viewer out of the experience and that's just a shame since it's easily avoidable. For instance, Liam's character should've been much more beat up and fatigued if not critically injured in all this. Instead, he comes off as an action-hero which is fine in other circumstances but not these. And if you're twelve years old you'll appreciate Hollywood's "Good triumphs over Evil" for the billionth time, but those of us adults know the world is seldom so black and white. Overall, just disappointing. Expand

No spoilers here, but what starts out like a remake of Hitchcock’s ‘Stranger on a Train’ - draws you towards hoping for some intelligent turnaround from action director Jaume Collet-Serra and predicable Liam Neeson moronic action fodder. Then, just as the journey begins to look interesting the signals change and the ride derails itself. Fans of mindless, impossible action, won’t be disappointed but, anyone looking to use their brain will be left at the ticket barrier. It’s a Big money-maker that apart from a cleverly designed (and endless) end credit sequence is somewhat worthless as quality entertainment. Expand
