Storyline

Three college seniors who are thinking about nothing but graduation and going out with a bang from college, harshly discover that a culmination of four years of hard work can lead to a permanent road to perdition after they decide to experiment with the knockout "date rape" drug on a vulnerable, impressionable, and very attractive freshman girl. Events quickly become a "Train Ride" for all parties involved, and end up spiraling out of control into a roller-coaster of unpredictable, virulent events that must be seen to be believed.

Man, I really liked this film for many of the reasons the last person said. The story, the writing/directing, and the fresh faced cast all provide unforgettable ingredients to this intrepid independent film effort. Whoever financed this film and whoever puts it out should be commended. Harris (from the HBO show "The Wire"), MC Lyte, Hornsby (Leon from ESPN'S "Playmakers"), Prescott and Braxton were extremely good in their roles, all of which were vastly different. My favorite rapper Guru from Gang Starr ("I get more props and stunts than Bruce Willis!" That's from the classic song "Dwick" for you non hip-hop heads) and Joe Clair were very cool in their supporting roles. I remember seeing the pretty Caucasian girl at the end of the movie recently in "The Grudge." And to top it off, the film was the iconic Esther Rolle's last film. She plays the Dean of the school, which is a very dignified and appropriate role for the last performance of her legendary, crusading career. You can see she was really giving it her all on screen in the scenes she was in. That says a lot for the filmmaker. What really bothers me is, why doesn't Hollywood give filmmakers like Dowdell and other African-Americans who make bold, important, yet entertaining films the big stage canvas they deserve? Filmmakers like the aforementioned would give Hollywood the creative (and responsible) diversity it is sorely lacking right now. Right now, every black film is about a hair salon, a cookout (I walked out of that film and asked for my money back), or a step and fetch, sambo comedy. I'd rather see a film like "Train Ride" anytime, and you should too. It was "DA JUMP OFF!"
