With a nasty villain and a plot twist that will take many viewers by surprise, Derailed is the kind of potboiler that's enjoyable in spite of its flaws. It's basically two-thirds of a good movie, with a convincing set-up and a barely plausible payoff that... well, you've just got to see it and decide for yourself. Like Fatal Attraction, it's a good-enough thriller that turns infidelity into every man's nightmare, beginning when Charles (Clive Owen), a well-to-do Chicago advertising director with a sickly, diabetic daughter and a slightly troubled marriage, has a chance encounter with Lucinda (Jennifer Aniston), a lovely and quick-witted financial advisor who's also stuck in a marital rut. Their chemistry is instant (between both characters and stars), but their eventual hotel tryst is interrupted by a mugger (French actor Vincent Cassel at his vile, despicable best) who's out to milk Charles for every dollar he's got. Of course, one phone call to the police would solve everyone's problems, but as he did with Collateral (albeit more convincingly), screenwriter Stuart Beattie turns up the tension with such manipulative skill that you're willing to skate past the plot holes and go along for the ride. With lively supporting performances by rappers Xzibit and RZA, Derailed marks a commercially slick American debut for Swedish director Mikael Håfström, whose 2003 thriller Evil was a Best Foreign Film Oscar-nominee. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Charles Schine is a tired Ad executive, who's marriage is in a rut and their only child in desperate need of expensive medication. On his daily commute, Charles meets Lucinda and soon begins to consider having an affair with her. This leads to violence and blackmail.
I don't want to give anything more away, but I found the story line original and, at times, truely frightening. Jennifer Anniston is excellent, as is Clive Owen. The added plot twists only add to the film.
One of the best thrillers I have seen- well worth a watch.
recommend it for children due to the bad language, violence and sexual issues.
Charles Schine (Ciive Owen) lives at home with his wife Deanna Schine (Melissa George) and ill daughter. When travelling to work by train he meets Lucinda Harris (Jennifer Aniston) when she volunteers to pay his rail fare when he leaves home without any money. One thing leads to another and eventually to a adulterous rendezvous in a low cost hotel. No sooner had they started their illicit relationship when their hotel room is invaded by LaRoche (Vincent Cassel) who attack's Charles and rapes Lucinda. LaRoche then demands money to keep their relationship a secret from their respective partners. This starts the chain of twists and turns.
