The Last Passenger - DVD Review

       The Last Passenger is a movie that takes place in London.  The movie centers around five passengers who are on a train that is taken over by a warped driver who has plans to send the train on a runaway trip to their death.  

       Much of the movie focused on the father son, Lewis and Max, as Lewis seems to meet a woman on the train that is attracted to him.  The suspense of the movie is built on these characters as someone takes over the train.  

       There doesn’t seem to be much of a plot to this movie since I didn’t understand why this person took over the train to begin with.  No explanation was made in the movie since no one was actually able to communicate with the driver.  

        You could say that the suspense of the movie was the fear that the passengers were feeling as the train sped along, not stopping at any stops at a run away speed.  The only hope was to find a way to stop the train so no one would get killed.  

        As far as the characters were concerned, they weren’t developed very well throughout the movie.  Other than some moments with the father and son, the characters seemed to lack any chemistry and their reactions to being trapped on the train seemed unbelievable at times.   

        As the movie sped along to the end, I would say that it did seem predictable.  I can’t give this movie more than two stars.
