Bryan Lienesch71 - It's about as good as the book. Which is, to say, a bit overrated.

Sober Film Critic James Brown43 - I am no fan of The Girl on the Train. Lacking the thrills and suspense needed to propel a whodunnit of this nature to greatness, Tate Taylor's adaptation of the novel of the same name by author Paula Hawkins dwells instead in mediocrity.
