The Girl on the Train | Ratings & Reviews

"Rushed to the screen to capitalise on the success of Paula Hawkins’ 2015 source novel, The Girl On The Train appears to have been written on one, juddering to its destination faster than the speed of sense."

Flicks, Matt GlasbyFlicks

"As a big-screen thriller, The Girl on a Train is just so-so, but taken as 112 minutes of upscale psychodramatic confessional bad-behavior porn, it generates a voyeuristic zing that's sure to carry audiences along."


"Fortunately, Blunt keeps the film anchored. Playing drunk convincingly is no mean feat, but she cracks it, maintaining our sympathy for a character who has gradually slipped towards becoming a functioning alcoholic."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Despite the occasional shot of piss-soaked knickers, there's something a bit too tasteful about The Girl on the Train."

Time OutTime Out

"Undeniably gripping."


"Blunt's gutsy performance keeps The Girl on the Train on track while so much is trying to derail it."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"I'm disappointed, the overall experience almost pedestrian, and this story is far, far from pedestrian."


"It has about as many twists and turns as an L. The third act of a movie shouldn't make you feel as though the first two acts were a waste of time."

New York PostNew York Post

"The puzzle of how the various personal and narrative pieces will eventually fit together exerts a smidgen of interest, but the characters are so dour and un-dimensional as to invite no curiosity about them."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Sadly this mystery fails to intrigue."
