Hokey though it may be, 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 physician escorting his seven-year-old son home for Christmas when, looking out the train window, he spots a body on the tracks. It’s not long before the doc and his fellow travelers—including a flirty single gal (Kara Tointon), a world-weary banker (David Schofield) and a kindly grandmother (Lindsay Duncan)—realize that something is very wrong with their 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 too familiar; and some of the performances are over-the-top (notably Iddo Goldberg’s as a Russian engineer). But first-time feature director Omid Nooshin makes the best of a minuscule budget, and his punchy script doesn’t brake for breath. It’s low-key but enjoyable.
