The Girl On The Train 2016 review. Directed by Tate Taylor.Distribution by Entertainment One. Certificate 15, running time 112minutes.
This film is not It, unlike novels that worked on celluloid such as A Walk Amongst The Tombstones and Gone Girl, The Girl On The Train is lifeless just like the character Megan, I spotted the twist early on. If you are a movie lover like myself you will see it too. The film though is just so slow, boring, in washed out colours obviously to show Rachaels alcoholism, that never lifts or changes pace, a film like a hangover you say will never happen again, but unlike a hangover and alcohol you know you'll be having more next week, you certainly will not be wanting more of this movie next week, or any week in fact.
A film that even Emily Blunt' s great performance cannot save.
