‘The Girl on the Train’, based on Paula Hawkins bestselling novel of the same title released recently and we are here with the review of the much-awaited movie of the year.
Most of the reviews so far are not so great and almost every critic is saying that the movie is a one-time watch.
The movie focuses on Commuter Rachel Watson, who see a perfect couple every day through her ride to her office but one day something seems unusual. She tells the authority about the strange incident happened in the backyard of the stranger’s home after knowing that Megan is missing and is threatful to be dead.
Rachel faces some memory issues where she can’t remember the day accurately. She then tries to investigate the case by herself.
Emily Blunt becomes the only reason to watch the movie while the 112 minutes psychodrama doesn’t sooth the level of Gone Girl.
However, the movie has got many flaws, it still is a very good movie to watch. A thrilling experience is promised but if you are looking for the level of Gone Girl, then you will be disappointed.
Have a look at the other critic’s review synopsis –
The GuardianMark Kermode
The British star holds all together as her character falls apart in this US adaptation of the Paula Hawkins bestseller.
Rating – 3/5
Wall Street JournalJohn Anderson
While ‘The Girl on the Train’ is largely voiceover-driven, Mr.Taylor also deserves considerable credit for trying, heroically at times, to maintain the literary qualities of his story.
Rating – N/A
Should I Watch ‘The Girl on the Train’?
Frankly saying, The Girl on the Train isn’t all bad. The story seems falling apart at times but the suspense will keep you tied to your seats for an hour at least.
Go for it if you love suspense-thriller movies but if you like masterpieces or near-to-perfect movies then you will be hugely disappointed.
