The Girl on the Train Movie Review

Emily Blunt stars in The Girl on the Train

Tickets to Nowhere

Rotten Tomatoes Plot: Rachel (Emily Blunt) devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds. Based on Paula Hawkins' bestselling novel. Directed by Tate Taylor.

The only thing missing from Taylor's The Girl on a Train is the Lifetime logo in the bottom right corner of the screen. Three women from Suburbia drink, moan and screw their way through a relatively tedious thriller that wants to be Gone Girl, minus the intensity (and good parts.) Sorry, but watching a drunk Blunt ride back and forth on a train for 112 minutes isn't my idea of fun. What is? Haley Bennett (as "a mistress of self-reinvention") and Luke Evans... two actors who almost make this movie worth watching. Sexy, sleepy and slow with lots of talking.
