Goofs

When the two trains are approaching, the leader of the terrorist group is shown emerging from the back door of a passenger car to view the stopped train in the middle of the bridge ahead of them. The only problem is, the train on the tracks ahead of them can only be seen from the locomotive at the front of the train. To make matters worse, the terrorist leader was going out the BACK DOOR of the car, so he was looking in the opposite direction. Not only could he not see the train straight ahead from anywhere but the locomotive, but he wasn't even facing the correct direction to see it. See more »

........why god....why?
26 January 2004 | by (South Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

This is just one of those things that should NOT have ever even happened, I mean, I hate this film with absolute passion, after watching it I actually contemplated suicide, why this terror has been unleashed upon innocent people is beyond me, they should use this film in wars as a new and improved torture technique...I would honestly with all my heart rather listen to 6 hours of Christian rock music.

Coupled by the fact I've seen seals who are better actors, I find the explosion of opening a can of pop more exiting, they had might as well have just run around for 2 hours firing cap guns, wearing action man suits, it's honestly that bad.

Summary:

Action Scenes - Sickening Plot Line - Depressingly Poor Actors - Just.... terrible, the terror it inflicted cannot be put into any words i have... stay well back from this "film"

In a whole: WORST! MOVIE! EVER!
