Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"All in all, the film is an excellent, if modest, alternative for moviegoers who have been blockbustered into submission this summer."
‑ Mike Mayo, Washington Post
"Director Brad Anderson throws in a red herring or two as he comments on Eurotrash and the greed-fueled lawlessness of the former Soviet Union, but he ultimately makes an even stronger statement about the dark side of female empowerment."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"A terrific combination of action, mystery and adventure"
‑ Evan Williams, The Australian
"Hitchcock would be proud of this trainbound suspense thriller with Woody Harrelson playing against type. A first-rate story, great action and great direction. Take the trip!"
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"as Hitchcockian thrillers go, it's one of the smarter and more absorbing ones made in recent years"
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"A thriller aboard the Trans-Siberian line, stretching roughly 5,000 miles from Beijing to Moscow, should be a cinch, right? Not so fast, Casey Jones."
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"As Alfred Hitchcock demonstrated three times, trains make a nifty setting for a thriller."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"All the actors get their tickets punched, and the screenplay doesn't insult anyone's intelligence."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"The story itself takes a few bloodcurdling turns off the tracks, with well-played action sequences."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"hearkens back to those glorious tales of intrigue and adventure that populated film screens in the 30s and 40s."
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"Unfortunately, there's never a moment where you can't see Anderson and his co-writer, Will Conroy, yanking on the strings."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Transsiberian is a model of audience manipulation, a slow-fuse thriller that builds its suspense gradually, in increments, until it has becomes close to unbearable. Then it pushes things just a little further, until you're squirming in your seat."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Mystery-train thriller chills, then goes off the rails."
‑ Don Groves, sbs.com.au
"Although it doesn't go as far as Strangers on a Train, TransSiberian is worth the ride."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"Transsiberian is a deeply engrossing film from the get go. It sucked me in with a simple, yet often overlooked, idea - interesting characters."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
