This was another replacement movie, and it was certainly more well met than others. For those of you who really want to see a straightforward and stereotypical Hitchcock flick, you don’t have to look further than this one.
Complex? Yes. Hard to follow? Not if you actually pay any attention.
Two-dimensional main characters are a plus, but some of the supporting cast was strangely placed. I think the focus shifts may have just been a play for time, entertaining as they were.
The main set itself (i.e. the train interior) gets a little worn out. The exterior shots help to brighten the frame with special effects vistas.
The effects are as good as ever in a Hitchcock film, fulfilling my expectations. The soundtrack, however, left some to be desired.
Good, very good. Some enjoyable acting and wonderful plot twists make it a fun ride.
Good if you want a neat (and short) mystery thriller. It may not translate as well to modern audiences, but it’s hard to beat one of the best directors of the genre ever.
