Critic Reviews for The Titfield Thunderbolt

All Critics (3)

The comedy isn't nearly as biting as in other Ealing efforts from the period.

January 27, 2022 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A funny, sometimes laugh-out-loud, warm-hearted comedy with vibrant characters, terrific plot, identifiable good and bad guys, and all the eccentricities the Brits hold dear.

November 30, 2020 | Full Review…

The script itself is disconcertingly short on wit, and some of its invention appears forced, and Crichton's handling fails to supply the charm that could still have been the film's justification.
