As Frank is running along the top of the train near the end of the movie, we see Connie clutching her cellphone as she watches the news. However, when Ned arrives alongside the train, she picks up the phone to call him. He hangs up on her and she is then clutching the phone anxiously as she continues watching the news coverage.

wow man, watching trains have never been that exciting before. it was a full on Hi Octane thrill ride from start to finish. one of the best Action thrillers in recent days. and on of the best movies so far. i would say that its impossible for any one to not enjoy movie. its about a runaway train carrying toxic materials running through high populated areas and they have to stop it one way or another. they try but fails but then these two engineer (Denzel) and Conductor (Chris) decides to take this matter in their own hands.
with decent performances, very different and interesting plot, good story, uneven screenplay at few places in the start which does not matter when the movie reaches the middle, and a deadly runaway train, you got a perfect movie to watch. and not to forget that its by Tony Scott, yes he is back. another thing that i loved and will appreciate about this movie is that the camera work is mindblowing and fantastic. two thumbs up for that. The action is fast-paced, and the tension grabs you from around 10 minutes in and just doesn't let go. its one of the few movies recently that has so suspense. editing of this movie is excellent, while some people will definitely complain about lack of action scenes, which i think is wrong since this movie does not require much of extra unnecessary action, its good the way it is. a gripping, adrenaline thrill ride with unstoppable entertainment. Must watch.
