Runaway Train | Miasto Movie
About the film
Andrei Konchalovsky brings Akira Kurosawa’s excellent script to life on screen. The eponymous train becomes a lifeline, then a death trap for two escaped convicts. After their audacious escape from Alaska’s Stonehaven Maximum Security Prison, Manny (Jon Voight) and Buck (Eric Roberts) want to reach Canada as soon as possible. They hop on a train and at first everything goes as planned. Problems begin when the elderly engine driver, Al, has a fatal heart attack and the unmanned train speeds out of control. The convicts become engaged in a hopeless race against time in which every decision they make will affect not only their own lives, but also everything that stands in the way of the speeding train.
