Storyline

When a prestigious Senator boards a train at Union Station, he is expecting an emblematic, smooth ride. However, his trip is ferociously interrupted when a militia group hijacks the train, taking him and several other passengers as hostages and planting a nuclear bomb somewhere on board. A gallant ATF Agent who happens to be a passenger on the train is the one man who just may be capable of both freeing the hostages and defusing the bomb before time runs out.

Under Par : Dismal Territory (tagline: My career's off the rails!)
5 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

On the other hand, why not just watch Under Siege 2 again and save yourself a job? There seemed a time - long, long ago, I know - when Jeff Fahey seemed to be going somewhere. It seemed as if he might be going to the same kind of place, say, Billy Zane was going. Unfortunately, they misjudged their stop and got off at Palookaville, where they have been resident ever since, hardly troubling the rest of us with their 'adventures'. And then, after so long - this! Does anyone else see the irony of a 'vehicle' for JF being... a hijacked train? This is even worse than the Pinter-penned drivel that was the remake of 'Sleuth'. Why take something good and regurgitate it as this kind of pap? Well, actors got to eat too - even if it is crow.
