Agent Brooks tells his side of a botched job at a job interview for for the Head of Customs in Alaska. He takes a tip that a shipment of bio-weaponry is coming in and discovers a Russian terrorist, Simeonov, is behind it. Brooks assembles a team and they go down to the docks to check the tip out. There a shoot-fest follows, an undercover FBI agent surfaces and a Russian agent, Natalya arrives to claim rights over Simeonov. Simeonov is arrested but while being transferred to Washington he escapes and with his fellow terrorists hijack the train carrying the stolen Russian nerve gas. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Goofs

During the start of the movie, the train only has one locomotive. While in the collision scene, the train clearly has three at least. This is because the editors spliced in footage from 'Runaway Train' ca. 1985 to cut down on production costs. The collision scene, and most of the shots of the train moving across the landscape are taken from that movie. See more »

Not as terrible as I thought it would be
18 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only bought this film with the hope to see Arnold Vosloo as a proper psycho villain again but like in most of his films he doesn't get much screen time at all which is very frustrating because he's the best thing in the film, in my opinion. The film is bad and totally unoriginal but it isn't as bad as I thought it would be. It's a bit like a big-budget American TV series. Some of the action is enjoyable because it's not done on the cheap as I expected but there is way too much deja-vu. Sean and Ursula do an alright job, although I'd have preferred them getting someone better looking and cooler to play Natalya (simply because she is supposed to be this enigmatic & beautiful character) and Sean hasn't got enough weight to carry the film on his own as the leading man, especially with someone like Vosloo as the villain. The hilarious bit of nudity was gratuitous and pathetic, but the actors make you forget it quickly enough, thank gowd! The "crazy, violent & unstable" Russian stereotypes are very outdated and preposterous but the actors play their parts well, especially Vosloo(apart from his accent) who always looks at best as the big villain with his stature and expressive face (although I cringed at some of his lines). Anyway, I suggest you don't waste money on this DVD, only perhaps if you are a fan of Sean's or Vosloo's because there are much superior action/terrorism alternatives out there.
