I liked the plot. I like most of the acting (lead female was a little boring). I liked the directing. I just kept wishing for more to happen throughout the movie. I found the ending to be predictable. Bottom line: this movie is missing something that I can't pinpoint.

Transfixed by Transiberian - A Fun Ride!
What a nice surprise. I love seeing a "small adult-oriented movie" that is so well put together and acted. They are rare but have become my favorite theater-going experiences. This movie is a gem....nearly perfect. Original, great suspense story, fun dialogue, well-acted, directed and edited. It is sad that few will see it. As the movie did not linger long in theaters you will probably need to rent it. Please do. You will not be disappointed. May be in my top 10 for 2008. Kudos to everyone who worked on this quality movie. If you are over 21 - see this mini-masterpiece.

GO SEE THIS!
I went into this movie not knowing what to expect. It was definitely a treat to see some great acting and a very suspenseful movie. I almost felt like I was going to have an anxiety attack for half the movie! TransSiberian will make your heart pound with surprising plot twists. It's a must see!

A suspense-filled plot, with some unexpected twists. Also, set in location most of us are unfamiliar with.

Trying but not there yet!
I found it very intriguing for a while liking the whole who is doing what theme and spooky Russians. But then about half way through it dropped into a not very believable plot.... didn't believe in the angst from the main character and without giving it away.... it just felt too staged and Hollywood after a while. Go see "Tell No One" for an amazingly well done mystery.

The twists and turns of this movie were incredible! Just kept us on the edge of our seats from the seemingly benign beginning to the unexpected end.

One of the better suspensefull thrillers of the year. This movie is different from most. Like someone in a previous review mentioned Hitchcock. I was at the edge of my seat and couldn't watch a few scenes. All great acting. Worth seeing!

Great show with the right actors. At times you just knew what was going to happen next only to be surprised. The landscape gave that eerie feeling. Great movie!
