Human error sends an unmanned freight train loaded with hazardous materials hurtling towards a Philadelphia suburb; a laid-off driver and a rookie conductor are the only hope of stopping it. Taut, tight little B-thriller that plays out almost in real time and puts to good use its director's tendency for hectic visuals.
