“The Girl on the Train”, US criticism and has been enjoying the eperadísima adaptation of the novel by Paula Hawkins and reactions, even polarized, do not take the film starring Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Luke Evans, Rebecca Ferguson and Justin Theroux ni fu ni fa. Thus, although some so known means such as Entertainment Weekly and Variety praised this thriller made for the enjoyment of the fan viewer voyaeurismo, most publications not only not been swayed, but ensure that fans of the book will be disappointed.
Matt Donato (We Got This Covered) 'The Girl on the Train' is a "Hitchcockian trip fraught with tension" in which the elements are mixed with success thanks to the skill of the film's director Tate Taylor. While Owen Gleiberman (Variety) believes that the film, which is just right, "loses credibility as the plot progresses, despite which manages to keep the intrigue" by a story that should not have trouble connecting with the audience thanks to the secret life led by stars of the film. Meanwhile Leah Greenblatt (Entertainment Weekly) compares the skill of the director with the work done by David Fincher in "Millennium: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ', ensuring that Taylor does not reach the level of this expert tell tension, but that does justice to the book translating "raw threat conveys the novel." Also from this publication applaud the interpretation of the two protagonists, Blunt and Bennett, ensuring that they are "notablemen.
Matthew Anderson (CineVue) ensures that the film "did not terrify to the core but gets goosebumps" Cath Clarke (Time Out London) says "it's not terrible, but fans of the book will be disappointed" and Jonathan Pile (Empire) states that "the thriller aspect is what most hurts a tape fails when raise enough clues for the viewer to theorize about what can happen."”.
In Spain we would say it is like the movies chungas TV programming on Antena 3 on weekends. That's how strong were other critics who incidentally have gotten with the original material, ensuring that the level of what you can see on the screen is so low that it fails to do justice to a novel already if loose. "No matter how basic it is the story created by Hawkins compared to some novels that preceded it, is hard to deny that did not deserve something better," said David Ehrlich (Indiewire)..
Robert Abele (TheWrap) directly compared the film to "section of a tabloid or Lifetime movie" while Todd McCarthy (The Hollywood Reporter) ensures that what most failure are characters who are "so unfriendly and lacking depth not arouse some curiosity. " Are we facing an unsuccessful adaptation or film starring Blunt will have a better reception in other countries?.
