In the first train/helicopter sequence, exterior close-ups of both the front and rear of the train show baggage sections, with few windows and a wide door. But in the second train/helicopter sequence, the same cars look like ordinary passenger cars, with regular windows all along their length. See more »

Where does one begin.... So much time was lost.
2 January 2004 | by MuggySphereSee all my reviews

It's not the greatest movie ever made in this kind of topic in fact it's not even the most original movie made with this kind of topic.

The one and only original we have ever seen of this was Die Hard and personally if you plan to see this don't.

Just go and hire a copy of Die Hard instead.

Now how many other movies like this have there been, well too many if you ask me. And this one is almost a clone of another train movie "Under Siege 2."

The lead character played by Judge Rienhold was more funny then serious and there were a lot of scenes you would have picked from other movies with maybe one or two that seemed totally out of place such as the female terrorist trying to get friendly with one of the young ladies who was revealing way, too much through see through panties and I saw this

in prime time... How the censors let that through I'll be damned if I know....

But even that was not enough to save this pile of s**t from being a good movie. It was just thrown in there and didn't go anywhere and was not part of the story.....
