The locomotive that was hijacked in Bremen is actually a Slovenian type 642. See more »
With the locomotive depicted in the movie it will be impossible to pass from the cars into the locomotive without going on the external side of the locomotive because the locomotive is one cabin type. There is also an engines room view when the characters pass from cars into the locomotive witch is also inaccurate because this type of locomotive does not have actually an engines room, all the engine and aggregates are accessible through several doors from the exterior of the locomotive See more »
This film has a lot going for it: A simple, but nonetheless engaging, plot, cool action sequences and some fantastic casting. Patrick Stewart and Christopher Lee are, it almost goes without saying, superb. Alexandra Paul really should get more lead roles and Ted Levine makes a pretty good bad guy.
Top marks, though, go to Pierce Brosnan. Despite having to deliver some truly awful dialogue in places he brings the role off to perfection. His "Mike Graham" could be James Bond using a pseudonym (although without the gadgets), and it's no wonder that he went on to become the best Bond so far (and yes I do remember Connery).
This film rates up there with True Lies and The Rock as one of those films that sort of is a Bond film really, even tho' it isn't.
