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

Mr. Davenport: Are you trying to tell us, Major, that the United States Army can't do the job here, but that two men possibly can?
Major Bill Buckner: I've already told you, Mr. Davenport, we can't move troops across the border. I know that. I don't know what they can do, if they take the job, but whatever it is, it can't be much worse than Morales has in mind, can it?
Mr. Davenport: Where can they be contacted?
Major Bill Buckner: Casa Grande Hotel, Casa Grande, New Mexico.
Mr. Davenport: Miss Baker, get a telegram off to Mr. Hank Brackett and Mr. Johnny Reach at that address....

intense action
20 October 2000 | by 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.
