About the Movie
Tearing up the track at 100 miles-per-hour, Runaway Train features hair-raising footage and spectacular, Oscar-nominated* performances by Jon Voight and Eric Roberts. Manny (Voight) is the toughest convict in a remote Alaskan prison who, along with fellow inmate Buck (Roberts), makes a daring breakout. Hopping a freight train, they head full-steam for freedom, but when the engineer dies of a heart attack, they find themselves trapped, alone and speeding toward certain disaster. Until, that is, they discover a third passenger, a beautiful railroad worker (Rebecca De Mornay) who's just as desperate and just as determined to survive as they are! *1985: Actor (Voight), Supporting Actor (Roberts)

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Wrenchingly intense and brutally powerful, Andrei Konchalovsky's film rates as a most exciting action epic and is fundamentally serious enough to work strongly on numerous levels.
Fresh: Runaway Train is a reminder that the great adventures are great because they happen to people we care about.
Fresh: Runaway Train belongs to a rare genre: the intelligent thriller.
Fresh: Somehow one leaves aside the blatant implausibilities, the coincidences, even Eric Roberts, and takes great pleasure in a breakneck ride to the end of the line.
This movie is great. One of the best movies I've ever seen.
We loved it! Great performance, excellent story.

But it does. Voight is that committed.
