Roy and Jessie have spent their holidays in China to help some local aid programme. When their work is finished, they head back home with the Transsiberian express as Roy is a fanatic when it comes to trains and both see it as an adventure that they don’t want to miss.
When during one of the stops Roy gets back to the train too late, Jessie is left alone with two travel companions, Abby and Carlos, who decide to keep her company when she gets off at the next stop in order to wait for Roy to arrive with the next train. However, as time passes by Jessie starts to realise that Abby and Carlos aren’t who they pretend to be…
Sound and Vision:
This blu-ray has a very good contrast and level of detail. The white plains and snow bring forth a cold atmosphere which is varied with a feeling of claustrophobia when scenes are located in the narrow cabins and hallways of the train.
The sound nicely supports the whole with good use of the surround speakers and subwoofer when necessary.
– Making Of
Pretty standard stuff.
Transsiberian is a decent old-fashioned thriller in the line of Murder on the Orient Express but with some modern day plot twists added. Unfortunately the movie doesn’t really manage to rise above average despite decent acting from the cast. The plot is a bit too weak for the movie to become more than a crafted thriller.
A nice movie but nothing out of the ordinary, craftily made but not spectacular. Transsiberian is like a diesel locomotive: it gets where it needs to be but it is hardly sexy.
