Storyline

A waste disposal company has a Russian nuclear bomb to transport, and an employee decides to save money by concealing it on a freight train. The train, also loaded with hazardous and flammable chemicals, suffers a brake failure and becomes a runaway heading for Denver. A wreck would be bad enough, but much, much worse if the bomb goes off. A heroic NTSB investigator boards the train; he and the railwaymen try various ways to stop the train, but nothing works. Meanwhile Denver residents are struggling to collect their families and then leave town, despite rioters and gridlock. Will the train have to be derailed to stop it? If it does derail, will the bomb explode, and if it does, what then? Written by Anonymous

Trivia

As of 2012, the lead locomotive that pulled the runaway train in the movie is still in use, now owned and operated by the Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern Railroad and renumbered as MHWA 2042 (when owned by BC Rail, it was numbered 642, the same number it had in the movie, though it was painted with a fictional "WestRail" paint scheme.)

Goofs

Everyone agrees that if the train derails anywhere after Jackson Summit this will most likely happen at Miller's Bend. It follows that a derailment at this point will be the most violent and hence the most likely to trigger the bomb. Therefore if it gets that far, the best thing would be for it to keep on going, if necessary right through Denver and out the other side; and there is plenty of time to think of this. Yet when the train approaches Miller's Bend, it is deliberately derailed there. See more »

I watched it on free TV and I want my money back!!
22 September 2006 | by (Macedonia) – See all my reviews

I rarely, if ever, give a movie the dreaded 1. I usually try and look for the good parts of a movie, whether it's the acting, or the story, or some subplot, or even the special effects. But with this total waste of time, there was no doubt at all. It is sad when a movie is so bad, so lame, that is essentially a parody of itself. What is even sadder is that this definitely was not a cheap movie made by college kids with nothing better to do. No, this is a network flick, and lots of thousands of dollars went into creating this piece of nonsense

The acting is the high spot of the movie, yet in places it is barely watchable. The production values are so-so, the effects are there, but aren't exactly that special. But what really makes this movie so bad, it's the plot. It's not a really bad idea, it's just how the idea was developed, or tried to, i better say. The plot holes are so big, you could drive a train through them. I could not figure the meaning and purpose of about half of the scenes, and the entire riot subplot is mildly put, ridiculous.
