You Can�t Escape Your Lies Transsiberian: Arrive On Time

Roy and Jessie have just finished working with children overseas as part of a church project.

Roy and Jessie have just finished working with children overseas as part of a church project.

Before flying back to the States, they decide to travel from Beijing to Moscow on the Trans-Siberian Express train, where they meet two fellow travelers, the handsome Carlos and young Abby.

The couples bond, but gradually Jessie becomes worried that her new friends are involved in drug trafficking.

At that point, the web has been spun, and when the intimidating Russian detective, Grinko, arrives, Roy and Jessie become innocent targets in a dangerous chase.

This movie remains a well-executed portrait of a complicated relationship between two real people.

Mortimer is her usual fantastic self, and it's fun to watch Harrelson play an average, upbeat American guy. Throw the always riveting Kingsley into the mix and you have a motion picture that is above average in every way.

By the time the film reaches its payoff, viewers will have felt as if they, too, took a ride on the Trans-Siberian Express.

This movie is rated R for some violence, including torture and language.
