DESPERATE AND DETERMINED TO SURVIVE 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. Based on a script by Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai), with hardboiled prison slang added by real-life ex-con Edward Bunker (Mr Blue in Reservoir Dogs), this riveting thriller... also boasts Oscar-nominated performances from Jon Voight and Eric Roberts with Voight playing spectacularly against type as a criminal so vicious that he served much of his sentence welded into his cell. Combining electrifying action with constant psychological tension (the only surviving member of the train crew is a young, inexperienced woman), Runaway Train is one of cinema's great thrill-rides.

Originally to be an Akira Kurosawa vehicle, Andrei Konchalovsky's second US feature stars Jon Voight as a prisoner on the run from a maximum security prison, who finds himself and his fellow escapee (Eric Roberts) caught on a runaway train that no-one is willing to stop. Initially he tries to jump from the speeding train but is persuaded to stay on board by Sara (Rebecca de Mornay), a railway employee. But this is when things take a turn as he decides that if he is going to die with the train, and the rest of the passengers are to be saved, it will be on his terms only.
