Just plain fun!
16 September 2002 | by (Culpeper, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This low-budget film with no big stars is a delightful thriller. Eva Novak and Cullen Landis star in a railroad picture that is pretty much non-stop action, with one great action sequence after another. Novak gets to play a woman with spunk, who matches Landis stunt for stunt, not the usual fainting silent film heroine. I viewed a newly restored print of this film at Cinecon in September 2002 with an enthusiastic audience and great live piano accompaniment. It was the surprise hit of the festival.
