4.0 out of 5 stars Robert Burns
Once more the immortal words of Robert Burns ring true: "Mans' ihumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn" in the never ending atrocities which continue to the present day, Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman are superb in the leading roles of this harrowing true story from the war in the Far East. Well worth watching BUT extremely sad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Off the rails
Based on the 1995 memoir of Eric Lomax, the Royal Signals Officer who was tortured by the Japanese when deployed on the construction of the infamous Burma railway, this film uses flashbacks to show the reasons for his emotional repression with violent outbursts of post traumatic stress decades after the event. Colin Firth, a master in this kind of role, plays the older...

4.0 out of 5 stars A powerful and emotive film, hidden behind a dreary title., 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I first saw the title of the film, it didn't excite me at all. In fact it was top of my list of films to avoid.
After finally watching the film, I can tell you that a powerful and emotive film hides behind this dreary title. The story is well told and all the more powerful through its basis in Eric Lomax's Memoirs.
Some of the scenes are brutal and others tough to watch. All of them are necessary to the story line, which becomes apparent as the film heads towards its conclusion.The ending and final credits are inspirational.

This review is from: The Railway Man [DVD] (DVD)
The film was good but too much referring to his life now and not so much how he suffered or footage of camp. was not what i expected, dissappointing.
