What we think

This sequel chuffs along cheerfully, with screenwriter Daniel Brocklehurst letting the new generation of children take centre stage rather than relying on veterans like Agutter.

What others think

This is a film with a touch more savvy about the real world than its 1970 forebear, at least partly because it has child actors who are the same age as their characters.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
A couple of worthwhile sequences, but in all it just feels like a shoddily made Brit-film.
David Jenkins Little White Lies
But for all its well-intentioned Black Lives Matter politics, The Railway Children Returns fails to move beyond nationalistic nostalgia.
