Bill I’s Rating – 3 out of 5
I was going to avoid this film due to its relatively low score on Rotten Tomatoes but when I read a positive recommendation from my friend Leslie Waltzer, I decided to give it a shot on a slow weekend. It’s been compared to Gone Girl, and I agree with those comparisons that it’s not as good, but still kept my attention, and watching Emily Blunt’s excellent portrayal of aforementioned train girl, she is captivating, while I tried to figure out what’s going on. Is she nuts, obsessive, schizophrenic, scorned ex-wife, jealous wannabe trophy wife, deluded alcoholic, or a sane person just trying to do the right thing. I won’t tell here. I can recommend a much better film, The Ones Below.
Bill C’s Review – 2.5 out of 5
I’m not sure why I saw this movie either. There was so much hype about this book that I read it before the movie came out. I didn’t really like it because there were no characters in the book that I liked. I guess I watched the movie to see if they made any more characters more likable. Maybe a little but this won’t make my top ten list.
