It’s a one-way ticket.
Two hardened convicts, and one employee in the wrong place, hold on for dear life, riding a train as it slices through a snowy world en route to a fateful end.
Based on a story by acclaimed filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, and directed by Andrei Konchalovsky, it’s a beautifully-downbeat tale of lost and lonely men forced to consider their places in the harsh world.
It’s also a pretty darn good crash-and-go-boom action piece.
Eric Roberts and Jon Voight both earned Oscar nods, and, while the box office never responded, this has endured as a film worth revisiting.
