All Aboard the SpyTrain to Corn-fusionville...
19 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Nazi train 'drama' is nearly unwatchable.

Watch this movie right before you drink the poison or pull the trigger. Otherwise skip it and just slam your finger in the door instead.

This movie is in black and white, the lighting is uneven and the sound is messed up in most places. The acting is stiff and mostly bad and the writing is worse but I still hate it for some reason.

If somebody would have blown up the train at the start it would have improved this dog by only a hair.

Jane Thornburg should have never read Bruce's book - it only made her life more complicated than necessary. Even Bruce hadn't read it or he would have known how the movie ends.

I'll give it a 2 because of the dead guy falling out of the closet twice.
