Night Train (2009)

Repost from 26/01/09:

A modern adaptation of Pandora's box. A story about greed, malice and betrayal. At first glance, aakalain mong adult movie siya but as it moves along, I know for a fact kahit bubwit maiintindihan what this movie is about. It was fun seeing Danny Glover in action again as the conductor of the train. Reunion of Steve Zahn and Leelee Sobieski, first saw them together sa movie na Joy Ride, which both movies are similar in terms of the mystery factor, in a way. Great performance by Steve Zahn, nakakatuwa siya especially kung nagiging comic ang role niya. Leelee Sobieski, she's hot, pero many people deny this, and I vaguely understand why. Parang sexy siya na hindi pero doesn't mean she's not. Vague nga, as I said. I like her portrayal of a med school student-turned-psycho named Chloe, err. Si Danny Glover naman, I think something is wrong with his voice, I can't particularly entail how, though. All in all, the entertainment factor of the movie is the beginning up to the middle. From the middle point onwards, medyo dragging na especially when it nears the end. Hindi ko alam kung nagko-contribute dun ang pagkakulang sa budget pero it is fun, in some sort of way.

Overall: 4/5
