About the Movie
One of those legendary train trips that people used to dream about taking, the Transsiberian Express has probably seen better days. An American couple, Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer), decide to return home the long way from their recent sojourn in Peking and meet another couple from the West, Carlos (Eduardo Noriega) and Abby (Kate Mara), with whom they quickly form that tenuous bond that often unites fellow travelers away from home. When Roy gets separated from the train at a stopover, Jessie begins to realize that their compatriots aren't exactly who or what they seem to be. But the real dangers of their unforgettable trip have only begun to surface; Russian cops (Ben Kingsley plays one), mobsters, and locals are still to come.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A handsomely remodeled variation of a cherished genre you might call the mystery-train movie.
Fresh: A thriller aboard the Trans-Siberian line, stretching roughly 5,000 miles from Beijing to Moscow, should be a cinch, right? Not so fast, Casey Jones.
Fresh: A queasy-making train thriller directed with vibrant visual panache by Brad Anderson.
Fresh: Has terrific Siberian location work, a carefully constructed atmosphere of creeping dread and an outstanding performance by Emily Mortimer.
Definitely worth the rent!
Excellent thriller that'll make you think twice about talking to strangers abroad :) I highly recommend renting the movie, as it's one of those that is great the first time around but not worth repeated viewings.
This is a real good movie.
Not the greatest movie ever, but you will not feel cheated at all. This movie delivers. Everyone does a great job and the story is good too. Check it out. If you rent it or buy it, either way... its worth it and you wont feel cheated.
To be absoultely frank, the beginning of Transsiberian sucked. It was bland, boring, horrible and stupid. But as the movie progresses, you'll find your self unable to turn away. Fear. Lies. Corruption. Guilt. This movie has it all-- it was truely a gripping film. I highly recommend it.
