A runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals puts an engineer and his conductor in a race against time. They're chasing the runaway train in a separate locomotive and need to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town.Written by
On some of the shots, the crossing gate arms are shown as just coming down as the 777 engine is passing. In normal operation, the crossing gates would be all the way down well before the first engine passes. However, this train was traveling in excess of 70mph. If the crossings were not equipped with newer 'Constant Warning Time' detection circuitry (which gives 15 seconds of warning time at the crossing regardless of train speed), then the signal/gate circuit is designed to activate by distance based on the line's posted speed limit. If the crossings are set to give 15 seconds warning where the limit is 25mph, then at 70+mph it is entirely possible for the locomotive to reach the crossing 5 seconds after the crossing is activated (at which point the gates would still be descending).

Though this film has a pretty simple and straightforward story, it is still exciting to watch. It does well in establishing the normality of the lives of these railway workers and the rhythm that they work in. Scott does well in setting the tone of the film early on, and with the music accompaniment, the tension slowly rises.
Pine and Washington are good in their roles, and work well together. Perhaps it is because their characters do not get along well, which may be easier to portray. Anyway, their delivery and chemistry with each other fit the film. Dawson does well in roles with a sense of urgency to them. I vaguely remember her being an FBI agent somewhere else, and with this character, she is able to portray how intense a situation they're in.
I especially liked the cinematography and editing in this movie. With a high speed train moving through various landscapes, the numerous wide angle and aerial shots give a good view of the surroundings. The quick jump cuts, and juxtapositions between the various characters on screen also helps to keep the audience well informed.
One thing that I felt was a bit forced, was the family angle. I guess being characters, the filmmakers felt that they needed to incorporate family values, so put that in there. I didn't care much for the drama of Pine's life though. I was intrigued a little at what may have happened, but Pine's character didn't really fit the drama.
Overall, quite an exciting but simple film.
