THE GREAT LOCOMOTIVE CHASE (1956)

Based off a true story, Union soldiers volunteer to steal a Confederate train to take back to Union territory. Along the journey, the men try to destroy the Confederate tracks and telegraph wires. This movie was a pleasant surprise for us. We weren’t expecting to like it as much as we did. It was interesting because it was based on true events and we weren’t really sure how it was going to end. Sure we know that the North beats the South in the Civil War, but this movie was purely about this one incident and the brave men who did it. And props to the one Confederate solider who kept on the stolen train’s tail. He was one determined dude. We really weren’t sure if they were going to be successful or not. Even if you do know what the outcome it, I still think it is a good watch.We are glad we have seen it and wouldn’t object to watching it again if that time ever came. While we think the young kids may get bored, unless they love trains, adults can enjoy this one.
