When Big Mac calls Indy 'Mr. Train Expert' a snippet of the train music from John Williams's score for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) can be heard.See more »
Plot holes: When the Germans stop the train, they somehow know about the explosives, when the previous German soldiers didn't notice the explosives even though they where right next to them.See more »
[Indy un-hitches the train to get away before the rear cars explode]
Selous:Next time, wait for my orders!
Indiana Jones:Sorry.
[the explosives go off, destroying the shells, but the cannon is left intact]
Indiana Jones:We have to go back!
Indiana Jones:Go back and get it! We can't let the Germans keep that gun!
[he reverses the locomotive]
Selous:Are you just making this up as you go along?

Splendid, 18 October 2011
Author: Matthew Lofthouse ( from Stalybridge, England

Yound Indy in East Africa

Excellent film about one of the most forgotten and extraordinary parts of the Great War. Some of the special effects may look fake but otherwise everything's sound; good script, acting, filming, costumes and story.

I have only gave it nine instead of ten out of ten because of the few bad special effects moments in the film. Its well worth watching for the entertainment, humour, action and the interesting historical people involved

Worthy of an award.
