Marvel’s mainline superheroes may have fallen into a rut but that ailment hasn’t afflicted this group of mismatched misfits.
Emotionally satisfying and, excepting some contortions during the final act, intellectually rewarding.
At best made-for-TV quality with stars too big to allow it to go directly where it belongs.
Visually compelling but tone deaf.
It’s the proverbial breath of fresh air blowing through a stale industry.
Despite its uneven tone, the film is compelling and, perhaps more importantly, relevant.
"The Girl on the Train" doesn’t derail but it’s not the smoothest of rides.
A mediocre horror/comedy that deserves neither high praise nor disparagement.
The movie is for anyone who enjoys sitting through 90 tense minutes and feeling the attendant adrenaline rush.
