Two trains crash somewhere in Russia, one carrying a nuclear payload. A nuclear explosion follows the crash and the world is on alert... However, White House nuclear expert Dr. Julia Kelly doesn't think it was an accident... Special Operations Intelligence Officer Colonel Thomas Devoe doesn't think so either... Together they must unravel a conspiracy that goes from Europe to New York, to stop a terrorist who has no demands... Written by

The password that Devoe and Dr Kelly get out of the trucking agent, Schuhmacher is "Hasselhoff", an obvious reference to American actor and singer David Hasselhoff. Hasselhoff's singing career had enjoyed surprisingly popular support in Germany and Austria where the scene with the trucking agent takes place. See more »
Lt. Col. Devoe doesn't have any formation patches on the upper sleeves of his uniform (signifying which division/brigade he belongs to). He only wears Rangers and Special Forces tabs. See more »

Stylish, hi-tech, completely unbelievable... Great
A lot of so-called action directors should take some time off to watch this movie and learn from it. We do not need to see a dodgy cgi train crash when we can have things the subtle way, just a couple being awoken by the distant destruction. We don't need to see a carriage load of soldiers cut down with machine guns in a choreographed ballet sequence, just the arcing laser sights through an open doorway. We don't need ultra evil bad guys who kill off their companions in sudden rages, just a compassionate man on a disillusioned mission for peace. We don't need the 'obligatory' kiss between the co stars at the finale, just the promise of future things.
Peacemaker is politically unbelievable, it has some seriously ill thought out moments. But at the end of the day it brings a freshness to sequences we've all seen a million times before, it lets us feel the emotions of ALL the characters. Intelligent, stylish, and great fun to boot. Worth a couple of hours of anyone's evening.
