Editorial Reviews

Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer) are the perfect American couple traveling from Beijing to Moscow on the legendary Trans-Siberian Express train. The two strike a bond with another couple, Carlos (Eduardo Noriega) and Abby (Kate Mara), who are not exactly as they appear. Unwittingly, Roy and Jessie are caught in a web of drug trafficking and murderous deceit when all four become targets of ex-KGB detective Grinko's (Ben Kingsley) investigation.

Don't worry: No spoilers. Transsiberian is an excellent thriller. A reviewer here aptly called it a neo-Hitchcockian film. A train ride in snowy Russia full of menace and suspense. As someone who has taken long train journeys in Russia, I can attest that the movie is quite good in transmitting their feel: from the vodka-lubricated friendly warmth of new acquaintances to the all too common hostile rudeness of train employees. And have no doubts about the suspense itself: the sense of dread and danger builds up gradually from almost nonexistent to just about unbearable. Emily Mortimer is superb as the central character. She has to exhibit a very wide range of emotions and she's absolutely convincing at all stages. Woody Harrelson is cast as Mortimer's husband. He is very credible as a friendly and rather naive Iowan who hasn't done much travel outside the US. He's also a train enthusiast--one of the reasons he's so thrilled about the Transsiberian. His wife is a woman with a wild past who turned her life around after meeting her husband, a committed Christian. They have to share their cabin with a young couple: Kate Mara, a young American, and Eduardo Noriega, a handsome Spaniard. Mortimer and Harrelson soon discover that their younger cabin mates are much better traveled than they are. Although they are friendly, Mortimer senses some mystery in the story of their companions. The last among the main characters is another train passenger, an English-speaking Russian narcotics detective played by Ben Kingsley. As it is often the case, Kingsley's character is both intelligent and intense. If you like suspense films, don't miss this one.

I saw this movie in Los Angeles and was plesently surprised. This movie had me glued to my seat until the credits rolled. Anderson clearly has created a mystery masterpiece telling the story of a clueless couple, Woody Harrelson and Emily Mortimer, stuck on a cross country train ride through the grim backdrop of a post-soviet Russia. The two are caught in a whirlwind of drug-smuggling, torture and crooked cops. I haven't been this impressed with a movie for a long time and can't wait to buy this sucker on DVD disc!

** Spoilers ahead

For the most part, Transsiberian works as a suspense/thriller and captures the uncomfortable feeling of being a foreigner in another land. The director Brad Anderson does a commendable job setting up the relationship between the couple, their struggles, and their vastly different personalities. He also sets the stage for quite a finish, but the viewer will have to decide how well this is pulled off. I loved the scenery and much of the dialogue was satisfactory throughout. A slow, definitive build up to the main conflict is sorely lacking in contemporary films, but Transsiberian captures this. The basic premise is that an American couple, Roy and Jessie are (Woody Harrelson, Emily Mortimer) taking a trip home from China on the Trans-Siberian Express become involved in a plot involving an investigation of drug possession and an accidental murder. When Roy and Jessie happen to meet and share a cabin with another couple (Carlos, Abby) from the West, events begin to pick up, and the intrigue begins. The seemingly well-meaning couple has other plans and, after a mix-up where Roy and Jessie become separated, it sheds a bit of light on what is going on. Later, a Russian police officer (Sir Ben Kingsley) takes over the investigation, but his true intentions are a bit shady.

While most of the film was solid, there were some aspects of the film that irked me. For one, being that Jessie (Mortimer) was the strongest character, I found it appalling and puzzling how she could not and would not tell the truth at ANY costs (which included possibly having her husband shot to death and one of the characters who she befriended, Abby, tortured).

Format: DVD
The Trans-Siberian Train crosses a snowy, frozen landscape in this former Soviet country. During a drunken let's-show-our-scars when an old man shows his tattoo, it is one denoting the Gulag, a reminder of the brutality of the Soviet empire. Let no one forget. This tiny foreshadowing, revealed so subtly, is a chilling nod to a perverse, corrupt regime and, for the viewer, sets the tone for the things to come on this train ride.

Woody Harrelson plays Roy, a naif Christian completing a mission trip in China and a long-time train buff who wants to take the Transsiberian for the ride of a lifetime. His wife Jessie (Emily Mortimer) does not mind going with him. Their cabin mates (yikes, cabin mates!), especially Carlos, a Spaniard, oozes mystery and a vague hint of corruption, while his companion Abby, a younger American, exhibits a secretive demeanor. Good guy Roy, a hail-fellow, well-met, makes friends with everyone in the dining car that night, at which time the Gulag experience is outed.

This is Emily Mortimer's movie, which allows her keen talent of facial nuances to dominate. She has a bad girl past and feels real appreciation to Roy for turning her life around. He know her secrets. Sometimes one's past is tested by a turn of events. This turn occurs when Roy intentionally does not get back on the Transsiberian during a short stop. Jessie is left on her own in this vast frozen wasteland and commits a life-changing act.

When they do get back together, Jessie has a secret she does not share with Roy. This secret has wider and wider repercussions, causing greater and greater danger for them.

Yes, I just watched the DVD and it does have English subtitles available for hearing impaired. I don't know about the Blu-ray though.
