Delayed Service - Transsiberian review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
08/03/2009

All the ingredients are here for a fantastic thriller yet Transsiberian fails to really gel, enduring a similar fate to that of The Machinist – Brad Anderson’s previous film. It is beautifully shot, with Woody Harrelson playing a convincing hardware manager who has strong religious beliefs. He and Emily decide to go by train to Moscow after completing church work in China, with Woody’s character being a complete train enthusiast. Whilst travelling on the cramp sleeper service they strike up a relationship with their roommates, Carlos and Abbey. Sir Ben Kinglsey, often variable in quality, is fantastic here as the local cop, menacing and brooding despite limited screen time. In comparison the two female leads are lightweight lacking clout and believability, often relegated to provincial roles when their stories should be the centrepiece. Going straight to DVD can be seen as a barometer of quality, but this is a solid adventure pitted against the stark Siberian environment. Well worth a rental and still confirms Anderson as a director worth watching.

Too long on a train - Transsiberian review by CP Customer

Well acted and thought provoking thriller but you wonder regarding the naiveity of the young couple. Justice is done but a bit harshly!

Chilling in every sense - Transsiberian review by JD

Spoiler Alert
03/07/2016

Beautifully atmospheric cinematography. The cold bleak endless snowy forests feel eerily ominous and threatening. The plot is pretty unguessable but utterly believable. The acting is generally fantastic notably Harrelson and Kingsley though Mortimer has a slightly pained expression which looks out of place most of the time. Mara and Noriega are great baddies, difficult not to genuinely distrust them.
