Great Silent Era theme-based action movie
18 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From a rail fan's perspective, Red Signals rates a 10 simply because it contains scene after scene relating to railroading in the early 20th century and particularly in the Southern California area. There are several scenes at the old Santa Fe Arcade Station (brick building with Moorish turrets) that not only provide rate glimpses of railroading during the period but also of the day-to-day live styles of everyday people. Given the movie was pre-Depression, there is no attempt (as most often occurred during Depression-era movies when they attempted to brighten up people's lives by focusing on the lives of the very rich), but one gets to see life from a more realistic historical perspective. The acting is generally over-the-top, and the sub-titled asides are pretty hilarious and you get the impression that the writers were jibbing at their own characters. Definitely worth seeing.
