      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times This movie has its heart in the right place, but it needs just a tad more cynicism. Rated: 2/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Lori Hoffman Atlantic City Weekly Rated: 3/5 Mar 9, 2006 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Oct 10, 2005 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette more heart than expertise but a fine family film Rated: 3/5 Mar 27, 2005 Full Review Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice Brims with respect for the fighting spirit of displaced workers.

      Audience Member A fish-out-of-water, high-concept indie comedy with goofy humor and broad characters…that's actually fairly funny, despite it's MAGA-approved fight-against-progress ethos. Brimley and Helm are so well-casted, and Balaban's small part only further proves his comic genius; but don't believe the poster…Kevin Pork-fat is barely in this joker. I don't like being lied to. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review william s I'll tell ya it oooooozzes heart but little else. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member (***): [img][/img] Very likeable characters and an entertaining film overall. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Really good movie. Good family film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Why was kevin Bacon in this it was after footloose so he'd become a pretty big star and I swear hes only in it for 15 mins all up. Pretty dumb movie about some old guys stealing a train, had some enjoyable stuff but you can see why its a forgoten 80s movie no one has heard about. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Two railroad employees, scheduled for redundancy when their parent company switches to airfreight, set off for Chicago in a stolen locomotive for a showdown with the head of the corporation. Light-hearted drama, starring Wilford Brimley Levon Helm,And Kevin Bacon Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
