It's stated by Mashkov that "he will be on Train 59 to New Orleans." Train 59 is called "The City of New Orleans" and leaves directly from Chicago to New Orleans. It doesn't go anywhere near Los Angeles. The only train from LA to New Orleans is Train #2, the Sunset Limited. See more »
I liked the witty repertoire of the characters, especially Seth Green's character "the napster". There was a decent amount of explosions and I enjoyed the lack of meaningless romance...One scene particularly captivated my imagination when there were some awesome car stunts. I recommend this movie for anyone who enjoys action, doesn't like sappy sex stories and won't mind a dash of comedic relief. Democracy to Burma!
