the lowdown: When a runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals comes barreling towards a city, a veteran engineer (Denzel Washington) and a young conductor (Chris Pine) must race against time to stop the train.

what's the buzz?: Gotta go with the roller coaster action! It was also fascinating to watch the failed attempts to stop the train, which seems to add to the power of giving the audience a realistic idea of how unstoppable the train truly is. By having a story of everyday men with real concerns over livelihood and family, we root for these two men who display an outstanding act of heroism when faced with danger.

what's the fuzz?: Some shaky camera shot and some might find it difficult to get onto the train after watching this! Weird thing was train stations around here had posters of this movie everywhere. Not sure whether they’ve seen the movie or just put the poster up for its plot about trains.

roundup: A simple premise set to deliver an exciting action movie. A non-stop adrenaline shot that pretty much grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go from start to finish. In between, you get the story of two men who display an outstanding act of heroism when faced with danger.

    The train felt like a character and I was at the edge of my seats at some parts hoping the guys would be able to stop the train.
