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.
