Hokey it may be, but this low-budget, London-set thriller about the last six passengers on a runaway commuter train stays on the rails thanks to strong performances, snappy dialogue and a relentless pace. Dougray Scott is a dashing doctor escorting his seven-year-old son home for Christmas when, looking out of the train window, he spots a body on the tracks. It’s not long before the doc and his fellow travellers – including a flirty single gal (Kara Tointon), a world-weary banker (David Schofield) and a kindly grandmother (Lindsay Duncan) – realise that something is very wrong with the 10.15 to Tunbridge Wells.

There’s a lot wrong with ‘Last Passenger’ too: the ‘who the hell’s driving this train?’ mystery element doesn’t go anywhere; the characters are overfamiliar; and some of the performances – notably Iddo Goldberg as a bolshy Russian engineer – are a touch over the top. But first-time feature director Omid Nooshin makes the best of a minuscule budget, and his punchy script doesn’t brake for breath. Low key but enjoyable.

What on earth happened to the release, just the one cinema in Newham?? The worst release for a 100% rottentomatoes rated film ever. What was the distributor thinking...???

Andrew Tilling

Die hard it isn't, and that is the greatest praise I can bestow. Every other film with this kind of premise asks you to abandon all sense and reason and put your faith in the pumped up everyman with 6 years of intense survival training he just happened to have at hand. This movie is refreshingly old school, almost Hitchcock meets Mike Leigh on the 2348 from Waterloo, and you find yourself asking yourself, "what would I do if it WERE me?"
