The General ★★★★

It's basically a really good silent action film. The stunts feel tense because it's all real, on location with real trains. I mean they're not going fast but the shots all looks impressive and it's so much fun watching the actors flail about on train carriages. Nitpicking, I have to say that although the final battle is quiet a spectacle, it's basically a trap and seems like Buster's fighting dirty. It just seems natural to root for the underdog.
