Transsiberian is a slow paced thriller directed by Brad Anderson ( The Mashinist and Session 9) starring Woody Harrelson, Emily Mortimer, Ben Kingsley, and Eduardo Noriega. The film takes place on the famous Transsiberian, where a couple, Roy and Jessie, going through a bad time in their relationship go on to put some excitement and adventure into their marrige. They meet another couple, Carlos and Abby, who seem friendly enough, but later on as Jessie finds out, there is something sinister going on. Roy gets left behind at a station and Jessie is forced to travel with Carlos and Abby alone on the Transsiberian. I will not ruin what happens next, I will say however that this is a great Hitchcock style thriller that should have made more money and gotten more attention. All the acting is good, especially Emily Mortimer's. The only downside to the film is that it does slightly fall apart at the end, things go from terrible to good way too quickly for my taste and it seemed somewhat out of place. However, the end is not bad enough to make this a bad movie.
Overall I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
