This is a first rate, gripping British thriller, about a hijacked train.
Lewis is a forty-something, well spoken consultant surgeon, a single father with a seven year old son, Max. The two of them are travelling on a late night train from London to Tonbridge.
Max is a playful boy, and his frolics get his father talking to a beautiful female passenger, a thirty-something newly single lady, Sarah. The chemistry between Lewis and Sarah is palpable, and they start flirting very strongly. The first half hour of the movie feels more like a Brief Encounter type romance, rather than a thriller, but it progresses nicely.
Jan is a bawdy Polish chap, an engineer who's been slumming it in London whilst he can't get the job that he wants, and his loutish behaviour soon starts to make the other five passengers feel uncomfortable.
What follows then is a very tense train hijacking, leaving the six passengers to figure out how to escape their predicament.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The ensemble cast, including the child actor, give entirely convincing performances, which make you care about what might happen to them. The movie is skilfully directed and well scripted. The setting on a speeding train gives a claustrophobic atmosphere which is intense and unrelenting.
There is some artful misdirection with one or more of the characters. The effects are a relatively small part of the film but perfectly judged. The blossoming romance between the doctor and the younger lady is engaging, and as they work together to cling on to their lives, I found myself pondering how long before a couple with their frisson end up married...

So often, indie Brit films are hung up on kitchen sink issues and grim situations. How refreshing, then, to watch a British movie that is a straight-up, entertaining flick, set in the UK!

First time director Omid Nooshin clearly knows what he's doing as he gets the balance between action, suspense and emotion just right. And the film is beautifully shot, which is no mean feat for a film set entirely on a grim suburban commuter train! It almost becomes a character in its own right as it groans and roars along the tracks (think 'Duel'). The plot is suitably suspenseful and keeps us guessing throughout, underpinned by a beautiful score that effortless flips a scene's mood from pensive to ominous with little more than a key change.

The cast is uniformly strong, but special mention has to go to Iddo Goldberg as Polish magician-turned-tube-cleaner Jan. I wasn't aware of him before seeing this film, but he puts in a star turn and is terrifying and hilarious in equal measure! Dougray Scott is also solid as the film's protagonist Lewis Schaler, an overworked doctor and single Dad who is just trying to do the best by his son. He's not your typical hero, and perhaps comes across a little gruff to begin with, but he soon warms up, and has us rooting for him whole-heartedly by the end. The relationship between Lewis and his son Max (newcomer Joshua Kaynama - cute and cocky without being brattish), is endearing, and there is one scene in particular that completely got me. Kara Tointon is effortlessly beautiful as the love-interest, but remains just the right side of saccharine in order to retain our interest.

A really refreshing and clever thriller set on a train.

I say refreshing as the film was not packed with special effects. I've recently viewed "Man of Steel" which, I admit, was a half decent film. However, it was packed with graphics which made the film spectacular but also took up quite a bit of time. I felt that the viewer was not permitted to use his grey cells ... the story was there in front of you and that was that.

"Last Passenger" was totally different and the kind of thriller I like. A group of people stuck in a hopeless and dangerous situation with no hope of getting out of unless one of them comes up with an idea. This leaves the viewer thinking as well as wondering what is going to happen next. Yes there are some special effects that give impetus to the movie, but in the main the "Last Passenger" keeps the viewer guessing ... definitely my kind of stuff.

"Last Passenger" has a good script and was well acted out by those concerned. Recommended for the thriller lover.

The cramped confines of a london commuter train provide an intimate setting for this tense little thriller. Dougray Scott plays the "everyman hero" whose forced into action when a late night journey takes a turn for the worse. Familiar plot devices pepper the thrills as Scott and the motley group of passengers try to change their fate; there's little new here but it's done rather well and I found some genuine excitement to be had when the cast were hanging off fast moving trains in the dead of night. Speaking of cast, Kara Tointon manages to shine in a role that could've had her relegated to basic love interest and Josh Kaynama has schmalts free scripting as Scott's young son. The absence of blockbuster finance doesn't hinder things and there's a particularly good effect when the train crashes into a car. The script doesn't wander about too much and tension mounts towards a satisfyingly explosive conclusion. Maybe I wasn't expecting much, although the reviews had been encouraging; I happily bought into this surprisingly suspenseful movie.
