Veteran engineer Denzel Washington and newbie conductor Chris Pine clash -- then collaborate -- to halt a runaway train in this hit thriller. The story raises the tension at every turn (will it crash into a class field trip? Will it explode with hazardous materials?). Both Washington and Pine offer strong action heroes, as nimble in their banter as in their stunts: Washington jumps across roofs, while Pine leaps from the train's engine to a moving truck. Together, they create a fast and furious nail-biter. (20th Century Fox, $30)
