It's not Keaton's funniest or cleverest film, but it makes sense that it was one of his personal favorites.It has so many things he clearly loved to play with: a historical setting (based on the so called "Great Locomotive Chase" of 1861), dangerous and grandiose stunts, and--of course--trains. (Maybe he really just wanted an excuse to wreck a period locomotive.) The train sequences definitely outshine everything else in the picture, but they're so good that the rest doesn't matter much anyway.

Technically impressive (including the most expensive shot of the whole silent era) and bolstered by Buster Keaton's inimitable talent as a physical comedian, writer and director with incredible attention to realism and detail, "The General" is an ageless film that successfully melds one huge action sequence with many classic gags. It's quite a miraculous film for 1926, definitely ahead of its time, and holds up very well 90 years later.

One long series of elaborate, thrilling, not to mention death-defying gags, framed by a rather thin and not necessarily all that great story. But Keaton is fantastic in the lead.

This film had the best special effects for the period, and an excellent example of one of the pioneers of hybrid genre before people even knew what it was. a movie ahead of its time that still stands up today.
