Originally to be an Akira Kurosawa vehicle, Andrei Konchalovsky's second US feature stars Jon Voight as a prisoner on the run from a maximum security prison, who finds himself and his fellow escapee (Eric Roberts) caught on a runaway train that no-one is willing to stop. Initially he tries to jump from the speeding train but is persuaded to stay on board by Sara (Rebecca de Mornay), a railway employee. But this is when things take a turn as he decides that if he is going to die with the train, and the rest of the passengers are to be saved, it will be on his terms only.

The film is very good with some brilliant performances from Jon Voight and Eric Roberts. Both men have escaped a high security prison, so when they bored a train to freedom, sadly the driver suffers a heart attack, and when the breaks fail, both men are stuck on a Runaway Train, which is picking up speed and heading for many perils ahead. This is a brilliant film with a stunning ending.
the two walk miles in blizzard conditions until they reach a rail depot
where they board a stationary train.
the driver gets the train moving, but then suffers a heart attack.
'Manny' and 'Buck' are not aware the train has no driver.
the brakes that were applied by the dying driver fail, it's now a runaway.
unbeknown to the escapees a railway worker 'Sara' is also on board.....
they know now.
'Sara' tells 'Manny' and 'Buck' there is nobody driving the train. now they
have to try and slow it down.
The 'sadistic' prison governor 'Warden Ranken' is in pursuit with the intention
of serving his own brand of justice on the two escapees.
O.K....a little dated perhaps lacking the special-effects we have grown used to
however it's really a pretty exciting and tense affair.......well worth a viewing.
This is a great action movie with a great booklet and reversible sleeve. Well done again arrow for the effort you put in to these releases.
