Beautifully photographed and original story
27 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

Never before have I seen a movie that explores the adventures of freight train riding hobos (men and women). Great characters, scenery, twists and turns and a spectacular sound track, including Merle Haggard, Super Tramp, Doobie Bros., Ozzy Osbourne, etc., etc. One outstanding train song after another. Academy Award Winner Ernest Borgnine is mesmerizing as the old hobo "Steamtrain." Kate Orsini is brilliant and transforms magically throughout the picture. The supporting cast of hobos are both hilarious and frightening. But the dynamic freight trains are the most compelling, snorting, rumbling serpentines ever to grace the silver screen. Anyone with an independent free spirit will absolutely LOVE this uniquely original movie!!
