Storyline

A Mexican bandit is about to be executed in the United States. So his brother takes over a train and holds the passengers as hostages unless his brother is released. Now both the Americans and Mexicans are baffled as to what to do. But one of the passengers, who wrote the letter for their captor, has a suggestion; call Hank Brackett and Johnny Reech, two mercenaries. Which they do. And as expected they do come up with a plan but the President of the Railroad is not sure if it will work. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Quotes

Hank Bracket: And in the meantime, all you want Johnny and me to do is pull 73 passengers off a moving train in wide-open country without being seen and if we are seen, they're all killed? Is that the job?
Mr. Davenport: I told you it can't be done.
Hank Bracket: ...I didn't say that.

intense action
20 October 2000 | by (Long Island, New york) – See all my reviews

Rod Taylor and Dennis Cole attempt to save a train full of passengers held hostage. This is a very intense action film, full of action and even some comedy. This film acted as the pilot for the short lived 1970 series The Bearcats. This film seems to be a kind of 2 man A- Team. Great performances by Taylor, and Fernando Lamas is excellent as the bandit.
