'The Railway Man' is a stale take on a true story

Las Vegas Weekly
23 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Adapted from Eric Lomax’s 1995 memoir about his horrific experiences during World War II and his painful efforts to come to terms with them decades later, The Railway Man never feels remotely credible in either era, depicting complex emotions in regrettably simplistic ways.

  • Summary: The Railway Man is een film dat de verschrikkingen van oorlog en met name de martelingen heel geloofwaardig overbrengt. Het is daarom ook geen vrolijke film, maar wel een film met ijzersterk acteerwerk die het waargebeurde verhaal overtuigend overbrengt.
  • Pros: IJzersterk geacteerd, Goed verhaal
  • Cons: Tijdsprongen vinden plaats op ongeschikte momenten, Tempo ligt soms te laag
