Critic Reviews of "Runaway Train"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Wrenchingly intense and brutally powerful, Andrei Konchalovsky's film rates as a most exciting action epic and is fundamentally serious enough to work strongly on numerous levels.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Somehow one leaves aside the blatant implausibilities, the coincidences, even Eric Roberts, and takes great pleasure in a breakneck ride to the end of the line.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
The nihilism and the vicious intensity of Mr. Voight's performance here are entirely different from anything else he has done on screen; it's a shame those qualities emerge in such a vigorous but disjointed film.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
Runaway Train belongs to a rare genre: the intelligent thriller.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Runaway Train is a reminder that the great adventures are great because they happen to people we care about.Antagony & EcstasyJanuary 02, 2016
A terrific mix of tightly coiled action and psychoanalysis that has no place in a genre film from the '80s, but works splendidly regardless.Future Movies UKFebruary 07, 2014
A thunderous proto-Speed with exploitation trappings, it also works as an existential art movie with a serious director and a dusted-off Akira Kurosawa script.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 23, 2011
A gripping action thriller that's also extremely well acted by Jon Voight and Eric Roberts in Oscar-nominated performances.rec.arts.movies.reviewsSeptember 01, 2009
While RUNAWAY TRAIN does balance action and philosophy quite neatly it's still intriguing to wonder how differently Kurosawa would have handled itVideo-Reviewmaster.comMarch 02, 2008
Highly unusual drama with single premise: survive the runaway train. A metaphor for us all.MovieholeMay 12, 2005

Gets derailed by a mediocre screenplay.
