Decent Brit Train Drama
Verified purchase
For a British film with a small budget and limited perimeters I thought this was actually done very well and I enjoyed it enough to stay interested through to the end, even though it wasn't action packed and is set pretty much exclusively on a night train. The train (asides from being a little outdated now if you use southern rail as the train still has the kind of handle-doors you can open whilst the train is in motion) was very typical of a night train, especially if you've ever been on one of the later trains coming from London to the south coast, and early on this is all captured very well showing very realistic and typical late night train shenanigans. Gradually though all the various passengers get off at different stations until we're left with just 6 or so still on the train.

That is pretty much the first half of the film - watching the number of passengers whittle down and getting to know the six who will remain on the train before the real action begins and up until this point the film feels like an observational character drama. That might seem a little slow to some but it's done fairly well (and especially with the budding relationship between Dougray Scott & Kara Tointon who I thought were both really good in this film and very natural and believable) but it works really well to set a very realistic and natural everyday environment in preparation for jolting you when the film switches into a suspense run-away-train thriller with increasing tension in the second half, with only the odd hammy moment from David Schofield playing a pompous businessman in this first half of the film almost putting me off a little bit as it did bring the acting down a notch or two into something you'd expect more in a daytime television drama or something. But still, I'm glad I persevered as the film does pick up from here.

It's in this second half of the film that things take a turn for the better for the viewer when they take a definite turn for the worse for the passengers (small hints have led up to this point) when some kind of suicidal psychopath takes over control of the train with the intention of not allowing it to stop until it crashes into a fireball at its final destination and kills everyone on board (in Hastings, no less!). With no way of outside forces being able to help or stop the train the remaining passengers have to team up to try and find a way out of the doomed situation and exit the train somehow before the explosive finale.

There are some genuinely very tense moments in the second half and I realised I must have actually cared about at least 3 or 4 of the characters to some degree as I began to really root for them to find a way out towards the end (you know a film is bad when you literally don't care one way or the other who dies and who doesn't) and all the action scenes and FX were done incredibly well - although these might not have been frequent, when they were there they were done very well and I never felt like a I was watching a cheap film with a small budget. Although I wouldn't run around recommending this film, if it happens to be on or its cheap and you like to support smaller budget British films then you can definitely do a lot worse.

Very Gripping

This film has stuck in my mind for years, especially the level crossing. It is edge-of-the-seat stuff and very cleverly done considering this is a budget film and that 1980s train does not exist anymore. All the extras show just how clever this film really is. Well worth getting.

Cheap cheerful and very average

Passengers fight back after a mysterious driver hijacks their train. Low budget and completely unbelievable, this has 'theatre play transferred to the big screen' written all over it, from the cliches (and cliched characters - the doctor, the businessman, the young kid et al) through to the cheapo special effects at the end. Kara Tointon gives a likable performance but that's about all. No tension, no pace, some rather pointless pieces of action, it left me cold. I did like the way the reason for the hijack, or the driver's identity were never discovered though, I have to say.

I've watched it more than once so it must be OK.

it's a passably good yarn. If you know the real train you'll have plenty to smile at and if like me from Hastings too you'll get the digs about our local railway. It's obviously not filmed on the actual line (at all) but playing "spot the location" is quite fun. See if you can find the Bluebell and the Kent and East Sussex railway in there.
There's quite a bit animated CGI stuff, but it's really not obvious and for what must have been a low budget job remarkably good.
The level crossing bit is really quite well done.

The train at platform one has had its suspense delayed, due to the wrong kind of thrills on the line!
Verified purchase
It takes a long time to crank up, about half-an-hour to ' build character'. It's not war and peace, it's a suspense thriller, we need to get to the action as fast as possible! Once it gets going it is a very good little thriller, made on a shoestring budget apparently. Dougray Scott is as always eminently watchable, Kara Tointon is quite good, if a bit wooden. The kid is almost, I say almost, as nauseating as a lot of american child actors, he fortunately stops just short of having to reach for the sick bag. As it's set on a slam door train, it's a bit of a stretch as they've been almost entirely phased out. Special effects are very good, of note a car getting smashed and a sequence of events with the runaway train on fire.

Sorry but I found this film very, very boring.....it's filmed on a train from beginning to end with 5 or 6 people on it, even the chat is boring, it livens up about 10 minutes before the end....soz but not for me !!!

I thought Hollywood made these un-believable films...Spoiler Alert!! Train tunnels are never that! narrow... That's just one of the many un-believable scenarios in this pile of cow pats.
