There are 4 of those. I will shut them down for 2 and a half minutes.
Total. They revved all the way up to compensate for the damaged exhaust shaft. When we shut them down, it will severely cut their oxygen. When the level gets too low, the computer automatically kicks the fans back on. There's no override, and there's no second shut-down. That's a safety feature.

Reminiscent of the seventies disaster flicks, mostly of "Poseidon Adventure", a group of people are stuck in a tunnel after a horrible explosion traps them underground; now its up to a washed up EMS worker to get them out alive before the mayor and rescue workers finally blow everything up assuming the survivors aren't alive.
Though the story is very predictable and nothing new, this does make for an entertaining and interesting survival flick.
Sylvester Stallone doesn't play a commando or soldier, but for once plays a regular guy who is really clueless at times when it comes to escape.
We also get some great performances from excellent character actors including Dan Hedaya, Danielle Harris, Amy Brennamen, and the underused Viggo Mortensen before he became a household name in "Lord of the Rings" films.
Though there is a lot of good stuff here, there's a lot of contrived plot twists and predictable storylines. We know who will be killed, who won't, we know the under developed people will be killed and the emphasized characters will survive.
In spite of all that, this is one of Stallone's best before he began making bomb after bomb.
