“The Girl on the Train” (2016)

The trailers promised me a movie as wild, crazy and unpredictable as Gone Girl. Instead, what I got was a big-budget Lifetime channel movie. There’s nothing really awful in here, but there’s not really anything particularly noteworthy either. Probably the only thing this film has going for it is Emily Blunt’s committed performance. Otherwise, the mystery plot is just so generic and standard, with virtually nothing that’s legitimately surprising or shocking. It’s definitely a watchable film that you could rent or mindlessly stream if you’re into these kinds of films, but it’s so just plain and unmemorable that you’ll struggle to remember anything about it.
