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

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.

A fresh and engaging storybook adventure that should appeal to viewers both inside and out of the core demographic.

"Deepwater Horizon" is structured not so much as a fictionalized chronicle of actual events as it is an old-fashioned disaster movie.

With two better versions of this story readily available, why bother with this mediocre re-telling?
