Storyline

Charles is worn down by his home life where he and his wife struggle to cope with the demands of their daughter's illness and his job. When he meets Lucinda on the train to work in Chicago, there is an immediate spark between them. Soon they are doing lunch; dinner and drinks follow. This leads to an adulterous rendezvous in a hotel. However, no sooner have they torn each other's clothes off than their room is invaded by a thief who beats Charles and rapes Lucinda. Because of the illicit nature of their relationship, Charles agrees with Lucinda who is reluctant to go to the police and soon finds he is powerless to resist the demands of the thief.

Goofs

After firing his P228 a couple of times, killing the new scam victim, La Roche attempts to shoot Schine. His pistol (which is clearly in battery) goes "click", upon which he is seen inserting a new magazine and then pointing the gun again at Schine, who shoots him before he can get a shot off. What no one one the set seems to have realized is that an empty pistol a) does not go back into battery, b) cannot go "click", and that c) as long as you don't rack the slide or the bolt of a gun that went "click" the probability of it firing on the next trigger pull is pretty exactly zero percent (La Roche's 228, being a SA/DA-gun, would have went "click" again had Vincent Cassel pulled the trigger).

Everyman facing a heap of trouble
5 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Clive Owen convincingly portrays an everyman who lives a life where every day is the same - until he unexpectedly meets a woman on a train and his life starts going off in new directions.

When that turns bad, his old habits reassert himself: instead of forming a plan with built-in alternatives, or being a brilliant improviser (like so many other thriller heroes), he forms simple plans and is always at a loss when they fail.

Other people feel that there are plot holes in this movie, but I feel that it just shows an everyman who is a slow starter, not the dynamic super-hero so many other protagonists turn into at the first sign of trouble.

Recommended.
