User Reviews: Dougray Scott is a fantastic actor and I always look out for him in films (check out new town killers in which he is mesmeric). So this film stayed above average – just – due to his presence. aside from that it is an average thriller, not edge of your seat stuff (train or otherwise) but definitely worth a view if there’s nothing else doing. i think it is unfair to mark this down anymore and anyone who totally disses this film does not realise how many truly poor movies there are out there and this is definitely not one of them. Think "Speed" without the gorgeousness of keanu or sandra nor the mental insanity of denis hopper at his best. So if you can get over that, you should be fairly entertained. The direction and pacing is good, the characterisation is also above average.
