      nick s A very well acted Agatha Christie type adventure. But it did take a long time to get going and I found it to be a bit on the dull side. The dialogue was rather verbose and the events convoluted. The big gotcha moment at the end was a bit of a fizzer. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review paul d A little gem of a 1940's British spy movie, played out on a train, with all the typical attributes of both spy films and train films. If you can get past the arch style, which harkens more to the 1930's, it is a rather well-crafted B movie.
