The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train

I was very excited to see this movie as everywhere I go and just about everyone I know is talking about the novel by Paula Hawkins or the movie directed by Tate Taylor.

Well, this movie tries to be like the hit “Gone Girl” but ends up more like “Way too long Girl.” The story at times seems to be in slow motion and simply drags on and on to the point that you really lose interest.

I also found the plot twists very predictable and not nearly as shocking as “Gone Girl.”

On a positive note, Emily Blunt (Rachel) does a terrific job of playing an alcoholic who is down on her luck and who has a propensity for blacking out whenever she drinks. The storyline gets much better towards the end but unfortunately, it takes all you can muster to make it that far.

Not having read the book, I can only hope it was much more suspenseful than this “lifetime” movie disguised as cinema.
