‘The Girl On The Train’ Is Captivating | Movie Review


The Girl On The Train is a 112 minutes Thriller that was released on 5 October 2016. It is directed by Tate Taylor, mostly known for The Help (2011) and Get on Up (2014). The Girl On The Train is starring Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson, Justin Theroux and Luke Evans. A synopsis reads: “A divorcee becomes entangled in a missing persons investigation that promises to send shockwaves throughout her life“.

Going to watch this film I had high hopes, especially after reading the book by Paula Hawkins and I must say that it turned out  to be a great film.From the first second,with the first word spoken , you are completely drawn by this movie. I felt that by watching this I  was using my brain almost like it was me inside the movie and I was attempting to solve the mystery that appeared right before my eyes.

This film has a lot of drama and suspense moments and the acting of Emily Blunt is high class. I feel that it’s  going to  be a shame if you miss this film..I genuinely felt sorry for the main character, Rachel, almost as for a friend of mine who is telling me a sad story.I believe that someone who hadn’t read the book will feel like they just dont’t want to blink before they got all the facts straight.

I highly recommend this film and I believe it’s best to watch it at night as it will make your time more interesting and it will give you a lot to talk over with your friends. Some parts of the movie could have been made better comparing to how the book is written.The Girl On The Train is not as good as Gone Girl, but still I feel this is worthy of your time.

The Girl On The Train is out in cinemas everywhere !
