01-24-10: Transsiberian

TRANSSIBERIAN (2008) ***1/2
D: Brad Anderson.  S: Woody Harrelson, Emily Mortimer, Ben Kingsley.

Brad Anderson's latest follows an American couple and a pair of strangers they meet on a trans-siberian train from China to Moscow.

This effective thriller is filled with twist and turns that you think you know how they'll play out but when the turn comes it's not what you expected.

Well acted by all, the only real problem with the film is that the some of the sequences of the finale take it out of the level of reality it was able to achieve.   It plays realistically but again one moment just seems to come from a different film.

Overall, it's a fun train thriller.
