If you have seen any of my previous A-Z posts you may realise I like trains, so when a film came out last year that was inspired by the real life events of a runaway train and it included one of Mrs RJRs favourite actors Denzel Washington. it promised to be a family winner.
For various reasons we didn't get to see it on the big screen so had to await its DVD release. Eagerly I brought it home and stuck it in the player with the surround sound on high. The kids kicked up a fuss " A film about a train ?" but as there was no better night life on offer, they settled down on the sofa in our dark living room and watched.
Mrs RJR would have watched Denzel in a room with no other cast for 90 minutes so her opinion is invalid. Strangely the kids were captivated and at points literally on the edge of their seat. At a one point, one even went to make drinks to ease the tension. Me, I though it was an excellent film, well made and well written. So if you have a free evening its a "recommend"
