Last Passenger

Opens Friday, Apr 25, 2014 Synopsis: A single father races to avert a disaster after becoming stranded on a speeding train with no brakes in this adrenaline-charged thriller from first-time director Omid Nooshin. It's late, and exhausted doctor Lewis Shaler (Dougray Scott) has just caught the last train from London with his young son Max. Although the sudden appearance of a pretty stranger (Kara Tointon) finds tired Lewis perking up, his night takes a turn for the worse when he realizes that the conductor has disappeared, and the brakes have been cut. Before long, Lewis has learned that a dangerous sociopath with a death wish has decided to go out in a fury of speed and fire, and he's determined to take as many innocent passengers with him as possible. Meanwhile, as police fail repeatedly in their efforts to halt the diesel-powered locomotive, the terrified passengers turn desperate, and Lewis prepares to take extreme measures to ensure that he and his son will live to see another day. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Dougray Scott, Kara Tointon, David Schofield, Iddo Goldberg, Lindsay Duncan Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
