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.

An American couple go on the ride of thier lives on the Transsiberian Railroad. Unknown to them they are being used to smugggle drugs out of the country. There are a few bloody parts I had to look away from.
You can hardly believe how this couple cope with the events and how two truthful people have to lie and twist the truith to get out of Russian alive. There is a small amount of bad language and violence....a lot of chase and intrigue.
Inspite of the things I find offensive to me most of the time it was a very exciting movie that I can recommend to those who like fast paced mystery. You are not quite sure who the bad guys are until almost the end of the movie.
What really makes this movie, though, is the acting. That's why it gets four stars. I adore Emily Mortimer even on a cloudy day, and she totally carries this film. Ben Kingsley, Kate Mara, Eduardo Noriega, and Woody Harrelson are obviously great too. The cinematography is also gorgeous, you get a real sense of how big and bleak Russia is. I loved the crabby people on the train and the idea of Jessie photographing everything so as to set the film clearly in her point of view. The ending aside, I'd say this movie is definitely worth a watch.
Woody Harrelson and Emily Mortimer are journeying back from Moscow on the titular express, and become entangled with wild child Kate Mara and edgy Eduardo Noriega, who are running away from a deal-gone-wrong. But just when you think straight-laced Woody is going to fall from grace, the script pulls a trick you didn't see coming...add solid Ben Kingsley as a pursuing Russian cop and you've got a nice 'spiralling out of control' situation brewing. The DVD cut is longer (and better) than the theatrical release.
Incidentally, every Anderson film seems to contain one shocking scene - in this one, wait for the moment when Emily takes a walk through the train!
