Storyline

Now a hard-working life insurance salesman and a caring family man, the former police officer, Michael MacCauley, has taken the commuter rail to New York for the past ten years. But, unexpectedly, things will take a turn for the worse, when on one of his daily journeys, the cryptic passenger, Joanna, makes Michael a generous and tempting offer to locate a single commuter or face grave consequences. Is this a sick joke, or is this indeed a serious situation? As Michael races against the clock to solve this wicked conundrum, everyone aboard is a suspect, in a deal where there's definitely more than meets the eye. Can he decide in time who's the one?

Goofs

Early in the film, Neeson is walking across the main concourse in Grand Central Terminal toward the East gates. Sunlight reflects on the floor through the windows on the east wall. No sunlight has reflected on the concourse floor since the construction next door of the old Commodore hotel in 1929. The old Commodore (now the Grand Hyatt) is actually on the South/East side of Grand Central. The windows on the East side (above the Apple Store) are unobstructed and sun does come through.

Strangers on a Train
11 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a decent action-thriller movie.

A long time train commuter is surprised by a stranger on a train with an enticing offer; after a bad day at the office the commuter is dragged into an ever spiraling dangerous ride.

There is danger, suspense and intrigue.

Ok so parts of the story may be far fetched but all the players give first rate convincing performances and aided by a distinct feel of realism during the train journey, these factors convinces me the movie deserves a solid:

7/10.
