Extraordinary Film!!!
5 May 2000 | by (Philadelphia,PA) – See all my reviews

This film was tremendous for a first time writer and producer. Rel Dowdell shows maturity beyond his years. Train Ride is a multi-racial stimulating film. I believe this subject is over due for exposure to society. Mr. Dowdell's view of this topic will educate while entertaining all cultures. The film covered every emotion and captivated my attention from beginning to end. I am anxiously awaiting more enlightening works from REL DOWDELL.
