Remake of Alfred Hitchcock's 1938 classic. On the eve of the Second World War, a train carrying an assortment of passengers, pulls out of a small town in Bavaria. When one of the passengers, a kindly old lady, mysteriously disappears the other passengers are led into confrontation with the Nazis and a desperate race for freedom.

Well after realising this wasn't the original (don't blame me I saw the word Hitchcock in the listings) it was going to be uphill. Then seeing the original have a great score on here, the remake not so much. My heart sank a little more.
Never seeing the original to be fair this feels more like a comedy version - quite enjoyable but I can't help but imagine the Hitchcock original is more suspenseful and dramatic. All it means is another film added to the 'to watch' list.
