Trivia

While the premise of the film has the main characters traveling via train from Southern California to Newark, New Jersey, the film was, in fact filmed entirely in Southern California. In 1959 the Union Pacific Railroad did not offer passenger service east of Chicago. This is apparent during the final chase/fight scene between the two main characters. In the background they are seen running through a rail yard with Southern Pacific and Union Pacific engines. See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, when the policemen are boarding the train in Newark, the film has been mirrored, as can be seen by the word "PACIFIC" (as "CIFICAP") on the right side of the door. See more »

Too boring
17 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

The first half of this movie was absolutely boring with nothing going on. I was at least able to follow it on the second half of the movie. It was mostly stupid, because at this point you don't care about any of the characters and are too far gone to care about it. I really have no idea who that priest guy even was. I mean, he was probably a minor character before, but I didn't care to pay attention. I thought at first that this would be a movie about music. While that isn't a topic I'd want to see a movie about, it would certainly be better than this. At first, there's little going on at all and then there's too much going on.

I really wanted to see the movie synopsis here just so I could follow it. Yeah, I don't recall any characters' names. I also don't recall any actors' names. There's nothing unique about it. Was there some love story I was supposed to notice? It's pointless on all levels. *1/2
