The Girl On The Train was the clear winner!
The Girl On The Train a thriller based on the novel of the same name, with the lead as Emily Blunt & the film being adapted from a bestselling novel, this was enough to get people anticipating the film. However since its release, The Girl On The Train has been receiving mixed reviews.
Is The Girl On The train a shocking thriller or just another movie that fails to be on the same level as the book it was adapted from.
Scroll down to see the different opinions we have received from our wonderful twitter followers.

The “This movie was disappointing, messy & boring” Reviews
— Chelsea Baines (@ChelseaBaines) 11 November 2016
@popcornoncouch a sweaty, grubby, rambling, shambolic, incoherent mess of a film, with Blunt’s performance as its only saving grace. 1/5

@popcornoncouch Blunt’s performance is too good for the film we got. The final 20 mins is fun, but the preceding 2 hours is SO DULL. 4/10

The “This movie is decent, but elevated by Blunt’s terrific performance” Reviews
@popcornoncouch Enjoyable if not predictable. Blunt does a fantastic job. Not quite as high brow as it aspires but never not interesting.

Ludicrous, implausible and bafflingly mishandled mystery, positing all men as secret abusers and serial killers. Yeesh. Fun bad tho. C+ https://t.co/dGnCifLq0x

We received various reviews on The Girl On The Train majority thought the movie was decent. Most of our followers thought the performances were the best part of the movie, particularly Emily Blunt’s performance. However it couldn’t overshadow the messy story & clumsy narrative. While others enjoyed it despite its flaws & found it enjoyable.
