This is the Original Canon Version, Uncut and with the original Red background and Red Train opening credits.

This is in Letterbox Widescreen (so zoom time for widescreen owners) & the print looks better than the Anchor Bay release from a few year's ago, also the 5.1 inaccurate but bombastic bass fest soundtrack that was on the Anchor bay version has gone and what you are left with is the original Pro logic Stereo mix. I have to say with the home cinema under demolition and rebuild at the mo I have not had the chance to pump the sound through my amp yet but when I do I will let you know the out come.

This is a classic move with some great action and dialog, give it a blast.

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 released. Arrow's DVD release offers a decent widescreen presentation, though sadly no extras.
