How far would you go to have everything you desire?

When a veteran conductor (Danny Glover), a young pre-med student (Leelee Sobieski) and a struggling salesman (Steve Zahn) discover a dead body onboard a night train, the three strangers find themselves on a collision course with destiny. Among the deceased man’s possessions is a mysterious box, containing a treasure so valuable that they conspire to keep it for themselves. Their decision sets in motion a tense game of obsession and deceit, where greed betrays reason and morality gives way to temptation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern day Pandora's Box May 30, 2009
This movie explores what happens, when a few people taking the, NIGHT TRAIN, discover that a passenger is dead. Initially, it was handled rather matter-of-factly. He had apparently taken some pills with alcohol. It was likely an overdose. But just who was this man---and why was he guarding his possessions so closely, and with such paranoia, when he boarded the train?

Sharing his car were only two other passengers: a young pre-med student (Leelee Sobieski) and a salesman (Steven Zahn). The veteran train conductor (Danny Glover) visits the car, shortly after the salesman notes the passenger deceased. While going through the man's possessions they discover a mysterious box. It can't be opened, but one can peer inside through some carvings in the box. The salesman takes an innocent peek, that will change all of their lives. He becomes almost hypnotically entranced. Each, in turn, follows suit. They all fall under the spell, and each tries to make the possession their own. It becomes a cat and mouse game, of the highest degree. And, why won't that darn box open?

This movie could easily have been on the Sci-Fi Channel, as a modern day version of, 'The Twilight Zone.' The theme was so similar to some of those, where the protagonist's values and moral compass, were put to the test by supernatural forces. And, how quickly, one could find his ethics in a state of total decay. The suggestion always seemed to be, that evil could be unleashed in almost, any man, in the right circumstances, and, with the right temptations. The NIGHT TRAIN is no exception, as it explores these human dynamics and the effects of primal greed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Hitchcock style low budget piece! November 29, 2009
This film is a perfect example of how to make a very effective and suspenseful film with a low budget. One location, few actors and great script. The interaction between the different characters is great. Danny Glover is perfect as the aging train conductor who sees the chance to get a break in life. Only thing that disturbed me was the bad CGI.

4.0 out of 5 stars So THAT was Richard O'Brien... September 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this film based on the premise and the fact that I was familiar with the 3 lead actors. As the credits rolled, I noticed another familiar name, far down the list - Richard O'Brien. Since he was the creator and star of one of my favorite films of all time, I thought it would be kind of intriguing to see what he looked like after all these years. Since his glory days as Riff-Raff in his classic "Rocky Horror Picture Show", he has made cameos in a bunch of movies, including "Elvira's Haunted Hills", but not much recently. As the film rolled on, I got so caught up in the plot that I realized I had not seen anyone that could possibly be him, except... NAH! Couldn't be! But as the movie neared the end, I figured I just HAD to be right. I agree fully with the comparisons to classic episodes of "The Twilight Zone", and I didn't mind the cheesy sets. It added to the atmosphere of the film. I could envision seeing this on SYFY on Saturday night (they just need to bleep out a couple of F-words), and it is a cut above their usual fare. And, yes, I was right about Mr. O'Brien. If you still don't recognize him, check out the "making of" featurette, where he appears as himself. Overall, this movie was much more entertaining than I expected given that it went direct to video. And if someone drops dead nearby with a box in their hand, don't look inside!

4.0 out of 5 stars You are traveling through another dimension... August 30, 2009
This movie is a bit Rod Serling-like. Definitely a good Twilight Zone tale here. "Submitted for your approval, one unique, mysterious, and seemingly impregnable box in the possession of a dead man, that beckons all who gaze into it with a siren song of riches untold..." The greed runs wild as the train rolls down the tracks in a blizzard. This one held my interest throughout. Well acted, IMHO -- and besides, Leelee Sobieski is such a beauty I can watch her in anything. A really fun, unique little film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad June 8, 2009
I agree that the sets are cheap looking and the acting is just so-so, but overall, not a bad movie. I love the two characters from Joy Ride and Danny Glover. It's worth watching, but be warned the opening scenes are really bad especailly the fake train.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Low-Budget Thriller February 1, 2010
US-German-Romanian production "Night Train" opens like a dark, noir-like thriller set in a night train running through the snow on Christmas Eve, on which two passengers Chloe (Leelee Sobieski) and Peter (Steve Zahn), and a veteran conductor Miles (Danny Glover) stumble upon a mysterious box. The box, which seems to contain something valuable, actually belongs to a stranger who has just passed away on the train. So what would they do? Call the next station and report it? Or keep the box for themselves, or perhaps him/herself?

The fast-pace thriller starts promisingly with three main characters who slowly reveal their true personalities to each other. Part of the film's premise might remind us of "Shallow Grave" or "A Simple Plan," but some may remember the classic "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre." Desire and suspicion play an important role in furthering the story, but there is also a "Twilight Zone"-like supernatural element about the storyline, especially in the second half of it.

That is where the story gets derailed. Writer/director Brian King (writer for Vincenzo Natali's unique thriller "Cypher") is eager to entertain the viewers with actions and surprises, but as the story unfolds, things start to look too incredible, even silly, to take seriously. Also, external shots of the train are shot with special effects and they are not very impressive, making the film's climax less suspenseful than it should be.

To be fair, "Night Train" (Leelee Sobieski and her performance in particular) is not boring. I find the film entertaining enough, but maybe not in the way originally intended.
