A great movie,

This review is from: Runaway Train [DVD] (DVD)
This is really a great movie, somewhat stylized in places, but in general a terrific metaphoric ride. The rendition of the main two characters (the convicts) is full of pathos, truth and sentimentality. Yes, these guys are hard nuts, but in essence we are witnessing what amounts to a Greek tradedy unfold here. The climatic relentless elements verses man and man verses man is terrifically paced, and hovering around presides the the notion of technology as a means of lifting these burdens from the sholders of men is proved fruitless in the ultimate test and challenge, which is really a battle of spirits.
