Get ready for a white knuckle trip that delivers on action and tension! In Andrei Konchalovsky's RUNAWAY TRAIN, based on a script by Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai) and real-life ex-con Edward Bunker (Mr Blue in Reservoir Dogs), two convicts break out of Stonehaven Prison in the dead of winter, boarding a freight train with the intention of getting as far away as possible before their notoriously sadistic warden finds out. But the brakes fail and the driver has a heart attack, sending hundreds of tons of metal hurtling through the snowy Alaskan wastes at terrifying and unstoppable speed.This riveting ride also boasts Oscar-nominated performances from Jon Voight and Eric Roberts.
