Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

There's nothing more frustrating than a thriller that pulls the rug out from under you after you've invested so much emotion in it. Written by Michael Pertwee, this tale of the unexpected plays so many tricks on the viewer that it soon becomes impossible to identify with the plight of novelist Richard Todd, whose inability to choose between wife Valerie Hobson and mistress Christine Norden spells disaster for his fellow passengers on a speeding express. Director Daniel Birt tries to invest the action with some disconcerting visuals, but his efforts are undermined by the cheapness of the production and the gimmicky script.
