The Girl On The Train Movie Review

The novel by Paula Hawkins, The Girl On The Train, debuted as number one on The New York Times Fiction Best Sellers of 2015 list just three weeks after its publication. The book secured the spot for 13 consecutive weeks, making the readers around the world go crazy for the psychological thriller. The book’s huge success led to a movie adaptation, scheduled to be released on October 7th, 2016.

The Girl On The Train is a mystery thriller, which doesn’t fail to astound the audience, as we follow the story of a young and troubled woman named Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt). After a tempestuous divorce, Rachel spends a majority of her days on watching a seemingly ideal couple, Scott (Luke Evans) and Megan Hipwell (Haley Bennett), from the window of her train. She begins creating a perfect life scenario for the couple but everything takes a new turn when one day she witnesses something shocking. Shortly after Rachel’s horrid discovery Megan is reported to be missing. Rachel decides to investigate the case on her own, and she ends up getting herself involved in a web of lies and a series of unexpected reveals.

The movie successfully keeps the audience guessing the entire time, and the continuously rising action creates tension and suspense. The audience tries to put all the pieces of the puzzle together in order to come to a shocking reveal at the end. Several scenes are guaranteed to make the audience gasp and even turn away, as the movie director, Tate Taylor, made sure to not leave out some gory and even disturbing scenes. With that being said, those who can’t handle violence and blood should be prepared to look away quite often.

The outstanding performance from Emily Blunt is for sure one aspect of the movie, which cannot be left out. Blunt flawlessly takes on the character of a troubled, heavy drinker and makes the audience feel pity as she struggles throughout the movie.

The Girl On The Train is for sure a movie worth watching, whether before or after reading the book. It’s a perfect movie especially for those loving both mystery and gory in one.
