The Girl on the Train (2016) / thriller, drama, mystery

An average execution of psychological thriller best-seller!

I love the book, I love Emily Blunt and I know you can't compare book with the movie and still... I am disappointed. The biggest thing missing is the feeling and there is too little character development. In a book you get to know what people meant to each other while film is just impersonal, bland and hollow. Events and people are preseneted like they are one dimensional things (except Rachel's character). And it becomes way melodramatic for my taste. It's not a bad movie and it's not a good adaptation of the book. The cast did good but this wasn't enough to make the film great and get it to a higher level. 3/5
