#MovieReview: "The Girl on the Train"

So here's another thriller based on a best-selling book: "The Girl on the Train".

It stars Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, and Edgar Ramirez.

Can it live up to the hype?

From Google:

"Rachel, devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds. Based on Paula Hawkins' bestselling novel."

I would say it couldn't possibly have from what I saw.

I didn't read the book, so I can't say where it strayed unsuccessfully from its story, but this movie kind of sucked.

It was however beautifully shot, and the acting was well done. Something was off with the plot though, it's hard to describe...

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
