A runaway freight train hurtles out of control while carrying a full load of toxic explosives toward a busy metropolis in this "gripping" (Variety) action flick inspired by real events. Roaring furiously along at full speed with its cargo of highly flammable material, the unmanned diesel train is on a direct path to Scranton, PA. It's up to a veteran engineer (Denzel Washington) and a young conductor (Chris Pine) to somehow bring the deadly locomotive to a stop and avert tragedy.
Rosario Dawson co-stars as a steely train traffic manager who helps guide the risky operation. Directed by Tony Scott; written by Mark Bomback.
