Sadly, it’s not the psychological thriller it could and should have been, with director Tate Taylor (The Help, Get On Up) seemingly out of his depth in building any sense of real suspense.
The Girl on the Train certainly has its moments – with the reveal somewhat unexpected. But this amplifies the disappointment of the final result. Emily Blunt (Sicario, Into the Woods) tries hard with material that fails to ultimately deliver. It’s not bad – it’s just not very good.
