"Broken Arrow" is the term used to describe a nuclear device that has been lost. In this movie, two nuclear missiles are stolen by rogue US pilot Deakins, but hot on his trail is his co-pilot Hale and a Park Ranger, Terry. The action takes place in Utah's canyon country; a high stakes game of cat and mouse.Written by
The film's main theme was reused in Scream 2 (1997). See more »
When Terry uncouples the train cars behind the flat car and the locomotive, this would pull the train's air brake line apart, causing the train to automatically "dump" all the air pressure, activating all the brakes as a safety feature, and both sections of the train would stop. (Because the Engineer is portrayed as a villain, he may have intentionally drained all the air to keep the train from stopping.) See more »

"Broken Arrow" is a good action film about a Stealth pilot (John Travolta) who steals nuclear weapons one night during a practice mission. His goal is to sell the weapons back to the United States government by blackmailing them. Old partner Christian Slater is willing to stop Travolta at all costs with the help of ranger Samantha Mathis. Howie Long makes an impressive film debut as Travolta's evil henchman. The screenplay is smart enough to work and the direction is fast and furious. A film that is about as good as it can be. 4 stars out of 5.
