The Railway Man

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'The Railway Man' is an excellent film. Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard turn in terrific performances. It's a great war film that not so much looks at the actual war itself, but how a war changes a person over time.

  • Conclusion: The Railway Man is more moving on paper than it is on film. This sluggish drama fails to connect emotionally until its final scene and that is too little, too late. A true story like this should be gripping and powerful, but unfortunately this film almost never is.

  • Conclusion: Tamely shot, thematically scattershot and uncertainly told — not even Colin Firth can talk this biopic to life.
