Surprisingly good

Five people on a train for an hour and a half, how good can it be? Well, considering my rating, I'd say pretty good. To tell you the truth, I just watched this because Gigi Edgley was in it (I love her), and my expectations weren't really that high. Just a few minutes in I was pretty sure I had nothing to worry about. With most movies nowadays (at least the ones that reach me) focusing on action and hi-tech stuff, this movie felt really refreshing. Even though it begins pretty light, with two guys just having fun (well, at least one of them) on the train, it gets increasingly darker and more complex with every minute. No one is really what they seem to be, and several plot twists were truly unexpected. As was the ending. Speaking of which, by the time you get there you'll have no idea what will happen. That's a feeling lacking in most contemporary movies. I mean, the good guys always win, right? But what if there is no good guy? No bad guy? Just people. Real people.

And if you're too lazy to read all that, then at least read this: Watch this movie. You'll be positively surprised. If not, send me an e-mail and I'll buy you a beer. Or something.
