This has the same displaced tourist feel movies such as HOSTEL and TURISTAS provoke. A "normal" American couple, Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer) are traveling from China to Moscow on train, after working with their church group. They meet a young couple on board but they are hiding something, which has to do with transporting drugs. There's a Russian detective (Ben Kingsley) on their trail. But Roy and Jessie gets separated at one of the stops--and the next day she goes with the drug-dealer Spanish guy to see an old church. They start making out but she has second thoughts and end up bashing him in the head with a stick, killing him. She goes back alone and is reunited with her husband. She doesn't say a word about this, until they encounter the detective who is looking for the drug dealers.
This is one of those movies that gets worse and worse for the characters as it progresses. TRANSIBERIAN will definitely keep you glued to the screen.
Directed by Brad Anderson, who was interviewed on Buried.com earlier this year.
