Run Time: 2:01
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-28
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ben Foster, Ana Ularu

Watchable but by no means worth the money and effort necessary to see it theatrically.

Run Time: 1:58
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-21
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Edward Zwick
Cast: Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Robert Knepper, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger

A jumble of overhyped action scenes, trite dialogue, painfully bad “character development”, and awful writing.

Run Time: 1:41
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-21
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Thriller
Director: Greg Mottola
Cast: Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot, Patton Oswalt

A paint-by-numbers, creatively bankrupt “comedy” emerging from a studio system that has largely forgotten what it means to be genuinely funny.

Another in a long line of movie adaptations of revered novels that lose something significant in their translation from page to screen.

Provides a solid starting place for a series or, if the box office doesn’t warrant a continuation, an engaging stand-alone thriller.

It’s strangely refreshing to watch a courtroom drama where theatricality doesn’t trump meticulous examination.

You probably don’t need a review to know whether this film will work for you.

"The Girl on the Train" doesn’t derail but it’s not the smoothest of rides.

Harrowing, compelling cinema - perhaps not as wrenching as "12 Years a Slave" but not far removed.

An awkward and unappealing mix of mismatched parts that doesn’t generate enough laughs to make it feel like anything other than a waste of 90 minutes.
