I had sweaty palms and never took a full breath all the way to the end once the action started, which was pretty near the beginning. From my perspective this is the best "train" movie since Runaway Train with Jon Voight, Eric Roberts and Rebecca DeMornay. Denzel Washington was excellent as was Chris Pine and Rosario Dawson. The special effects were incredible. Usually, these days, you can say, "Oh, that was just CG." But if it was, in this case they did one heck of a job. It is definitely worth seeing this movie on the big screen in a theater to really appreciate everything that is going on between the trains, trucks and choppers. The fact that it based on real events makes it all the more incredible.
