A highly regarded prison escape movie set in the frozen north that is far too steeped in melodrama to be believable, although Jon Voight turns in a typically intense performance through to the pretentious and highly anti-climactic ending.

A pretty lame thriller about two escaped convicts who hop on a train to escape prison. There is a little interest early on in the prison but once they get on the train it goes into a very boring auto pilot. The film also is not helped from poor performances all around especially from Eric Robert's cringe worthy Oscar nominated performance who sounds a bit too much like Jim Varney's Ernest.
