5 A Runaway Success!ReliantRobin | 18/08/2013 | See all ReliantRobin's reviews (13)This riveting thriller grabs you within the first few minutes and doesn't let go for the entire running time. Voigt is terrific as Manny, a hard as nails convict who escapes from a remote Alaskan prison with his accomplice Buck (Eric Roberts) and boards a freight train in a desperate bid for freedom . Unbeknown to them, the driver has suffered a heart attack and fallen from the cab leaving the train hurtling uncontrolled along the track and into the wilderness. Meanwhile a brutal prison warden (John P. Ryan) wants them back at any cost, even if it means doggedly pursuing them by helicopter across the treacherous terrain. There's so much to enjoy here, notably some hair raising action footage. This is old school stunt work too - no dodgy FX with miniatures or ropey CGI. The late and, sadly underrated, Ryan (a Cannon regular) gives a wonderful performance and there is also solid support from Roberts and a young Rebecca de Mornay. This is easily the best film Cannon ever produced and Arrow's new blu-ray release is the business: much improved picture quality compared to all previous releases and some worthy extras - particularly a fascinating interview with voigt who remembers the project well for a movie made nearly 30 years ago.
