Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
A DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer find themselves on the run after a botched attempt to infiltrate a drug cartel. While fleeing, they learn the secret of their shaky alliance: Neither knew that the other was an undercover agent.
A runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals puts an engineer and his conductor in a race against time. They're chasing the runaway train in a separate locomotive and need to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town. Written by
In Tony Scott's penultimate film The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 (2009), the climax of that film also involved a runaway train that foreshadows the plot of this film. See more »
Whenever anyone attempted to board 777, the only effort was always at the very front of the locomotive. While there is an entry door in the front, crew can also board the locomotive from the rear step and walk towards the front on the right side to the cab. See more »
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.
