From the start Last Passenger feels like the kind of suspense film you don't see any more. There is character development. And relationships I care about between the people on the train. I was really interested in how these strangers are getting along when along comes the threat. I still had The Birds on my mind and have always loved how the you get on the edge of your seat simply on the love interest alone, well before the birds start to attack. Versus something like Hostel where they rush to the danger, don't set up the characters, you don't care what happens to them, and you'd just like them to hurry up and live or die so you can go home. Last Passenger gets back to the Hitchcockian "build". I really liked Dougray Scott. I had only seen him in smaller roles but he totally owns this film. I also really like Kara Tointon who I hadn't seen before and I not sure why. She's great. Even the little boy is fantastic. He actually reminded me of the kid that played Danny in The Shining. Just a little less creepy. Anyway... good acting, cool story and a fun idea.
